Top Selling Games Of All Time


#1

What a sad list

pretty much the guitar games, and Call of Duties, with generic staple Wii games.

Still, props to the Wii for outselling several multi-console releases. Hurray for parents who wanna play video games still!


#2

Should the games that are sold with $80 worth of equipment really be eligible for this list?


#3

What no Halo 3 or Sims?


#4

Waiting on the response of someone whos mad because SSFIV aint on that list.


#5

I’d rather see a list that listed the titles in the order of units sold rather than the amount of money brought in, for the reason that Valaris stated.


#6

That list just goes to show how lazy, uninspired, and untalented the average western kid is.

If you need a game to motivate you to get fit, your fucked.


#7

I like how it shows how we either want to shoot u or sing a song about it


#8

I believe that list is incorrect.

Top selling games should be by quantity and not dollar value. Most of the games on the list are bundled with accessories.

The only games I see on there that makes sense would be MW2, MW1, Mario Kart, and Black Ops (minus the bundles).

That’s the American way. You wouldn’t know. :coffee:

We all know Wikipedia isn’t the most credible source, but they do have a page on this. For what’s worth it seems to look reasonable.


#10

I’m extremely surprised Tetris and Super Mario Bros. 3 isn’t on that list.


#11

I spent money on 8 out of the 10. There’s 3, maybe 4 that I consider worth it. And if I was struggling and had to pick and choose which one I needed rather than wanted it would have been the same 4.


#12

I dont think that list takes into consideration the time value of money. Something in the mario series should be there.


#13

Wii Sports got snubbed because it comes free with every new Wii I bet. Damn shame.

Most of the money Guitar Hero and Rock Band make is from the peripherals, whereas CoD makes money off pre-orders and DLC that makes SSF4 costumes and BlazBlue characters look like a bargain


#14

Tetris, I’ll admit, shocked me. But I don’t think Tetris was ever going for $59.99

And Mario 3, lol no. No single console game is on that list (including Halo), with the exception of the Wii shit, that virtually everybody with a Wii needs to have. All the Call of Duty games had the benefit of a tri-console launch.


#15

Guitar Hero 3 is probably the best one out of their whole series for me.


#16

well… do they count that GH comes with shyt? like the entire band set
or how many pissed off ppl returned BO, haha…

What about HALo2 or mario 3


#17

I bolded the part that makes me question your rage.


#18

Thread title and list is incorrect, all it shows is the highest grossing games not numbers of units sold.


#19

interesting list. There’s a couple on the list that surprised me.


#20

Shouldn’t COD MW2 be on top? I thought that made over a billion.
