Comparing the 10 best selling video games over all major platforms in the last 25 years against critical response from fan & critic. While a few surprises are revealed in what games made the top, and which systems and publisher dominated, the biggest surprise might be that both fans and critics agreed with one another.

What an amazing article, which tells the grand tale of videogame past, present, and possibly future. I could not help but notice that each game within the top 10 were awarding titles produced under the Nintendo Umbrella. With some single games selling more alone than many franchise offerings from rival gaming competitors combined. I have never seen a breakdown like this before, and have been left in a state of shock. My Super Mario hat is tipped in the favor of Nintendo and dedication. Making the consumer proud for decades.

I am also proud to have learned that Super Mario Bros for the Nintendo Entertainment System has sold 40,000,000 copies+ to this very day. One of my all time favorite Nintendo exclusives, and very deserving of those awarding sales.

I hope that with Nintendos fresh wave of next generation gaming platforms, the Nintendo Wii U & 3DS entertainment systems alike. We bare witness to new Nintendo titles that take a crack at the already Nintendo dominated top 10 highest selling games chart of all time. I will place a safe bet that New Super Mario Bros U, and Super Smash Bros U have a fair chance to be honored with a position toward the top of future top selling charts.

Rated E For Everyone
