Lich King tops last US PC chart of 2008
Sims expansions and other regulars lead as triple A titles fall back
World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King topped the final PC chart of 2008 in the US as the pre-Christmas influence of standalone triple A titles continued to wane.
Expansions for the Sims 2 saw gains with Double Deluxe taking second place, Apartment Life sitting in fifth and Mansion & Garden Stuff in ninth.
Meanwhile Spore was third, followed by Left 4 Dead in fourth place, Fallout 3 in sixth and Call of Duty: World at War in seventh.
The World of Warcraft Battle Chest took eighth position, with Bejeweled Twist rounding out the top ten.

The full list is as follows:
- 1. World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King
- 2. The Sims 2 Double Deluxe
