Latest sales figures show that Harry Potter - The Philosopher's Stone was the fastest selling computer game in 2001. Other top titles included WWF Smackdown and Tomb Raider 4.
The top 10 games chart is Grand Theft Auto 3 Harry Potter - Philosopher's Stone FIFA 2002 Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 007: Agent Under Fire The Sims Pro Evolution Soccer The Weakest Link Devil May Cry SSX: Tricky
Harry's magic also helped UK games sales reach its highest-ever total: £1.6 billion.
We now spend more on gaming in the UK than on videos and cinemas.
And with the 2002 UK launches of Microsoft's Xbox in March and Nintendo GameCube later in the year there are sure to be even more treats for thumb-bandits everywhere.
