VGChartz's Evan Norris: "In terms of brand new games, 2017 was one of the better years in recent memory. Yet it also scored big with old games made new again. The industry saw remastered and remade games, collections of classics, and best-sellers with added content and features. Perhaps most remarkable is how well many remasters and collections have sold. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy passed 2.5 million units several months ago. Meanwhile, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe became the "fastest-selling game" in franchise history, hitting 459,000 copies on launch day in the US."
