Video game retailer GameStop today announced the results of a recent customer poll about top-requested games for the holiday. GameStop surveyed its PowerUp Rewards members about what their "I've gotta have it" games for this holiday season are, and Final Fantasy XV came out on top

Rounding out the top five, in order, were Battlefield 1, Pokemon Sun and Moon, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. Madden NFL 17, Gears of War 4, Titanfall 2, and Watch Dogs 2 were also called out, though GameStop didn't say where they ranked.

In October, research company Nielsen released the result of its annual Most Anticipated Holiday games survey. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Battlefield 1 stood at the top of gamers' wish lists when it came to multiplatform releases.

GameStop also announced new sales promotions today. Starting December 4 and running until the end of 2016, the retailer will throw in a free Whale Shark Card for Grand Theft Auto V when you buy the game. The card comes with $3.5 million worth of in-game currency; it normally sells for $50.

Additionally, starting on December 10, PowerUp Rewards Pro members will be able to take advantage of a buy two, get one free deal on all pre-owned products. A membership costs $15/year.
