Here's our weekly look at what you're really gaming across the UK.

Who loves football? UK gamers love football, or at least FIFA 12, which has been top of the gaming charts for six weeks now. Do they get a gold record for this? Do they even do those anymore?

Chasing away the Christmas bulge, Just Dance 3 is in second place, where it was two weeks before Christmas. Not to make any assumptions about how many mince pies you planned to or did eat over Christmas, but that timing is a little bit of a coincidence, no?

Despite Skyrim's cumbersome inventory, as highlighted by our canny blogger Philippa Warr, Bethesda’s ‘The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’ climbs two places up to number three.

Other shooters dropped - EA’s Battlefield 3 drops to fourth place and Activision Blizzard’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to fifth.

Fitness is still on your mind in mid January, when many have given up the health kick and resorted to pints and roasts. 505 Games’ Zumba titles ‘Zumba Fitness’ and ‘Zumba Fitness 2’ are back to back in sixth and seventh spots.

Bethesda's Rage is in at eight, Ubisoft's ‘Assassin’s Creed: Revelations’ at number nine and ‘Need For Speed: The Run’ takes the wooden spoon at ten.

Outside the top ten, but hugely popular (almost doubling in sales this week in fact) is Ubisoft’s ‘Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012’ for Kinect.

Are you not using your gym memberships? Nintendo’s ‘Wii Fit Plus’ smashed into the top 40 last week too.

Expect the fitness and movement-based games to dip off once the summer sun comes back, and we all realise chocolate and beer make us very happy.
