The top fifty games of the 2000s have each done over 5m units so far. What games are on the list? What games will be on it when the decade ends in December? Read on to see for yourself.
Nintendo games in the first 5 and then the GTA games and (I think) 2 GT games followed by the Halos. 2 disagrees? Hmmm I wonder why. LOL
Yea, it seems Nintendo always has fewer hits, but those hit games always sell a TON.
This list makes me sick. So many crap games in the top 10, Wii Sports 44 million, that is ridiculous. *spit on nintendo and their casualness*
here`s a crazy concept gaffyh, you could be mature and respect the fact that the casual market is larger then the so called self proclaimed fictional (hardcore) market and then go and enjoy the games you like on the consoles you have.
@1: Maybe cause it's VGchartz.
@montrealien - Yeah I understand that, still it disgusts me that actual good games sell less than crap titles like WiiFit, WiiPlay and WiiSports.
@1.4 Why would that mean GTA and Gran Turismo would have sold well?
yeah, I hear ya gaffyh ,just like great movies are usually not huge box office draws. The casual market Is just a bigger market, and Nintendo is pwning it atm.
Not One PS3 exclusive on that list.
I died a little inside seeing Nintendo's numbers on some of those games, but oh well, casuals buy into that crap. At least the Pokemon games deserve their sales. I knew they sold a lot, but I didn't know they sold that many.
The Dark Knight sold a lot.
GT was slaughtering competition
Amazing observation! Cookie?
Isn't there only 1 360 exclusive? And barring that the list is thrown off by having WiiSports on the list, doesn't the Wii, DS, PS2, XBox, GBA all have more exclusives than the 360 on that list? And unless, I'm mistaken, the PSP, PS1, and the original Game Boy all have the same number of exclusives on the list, don't they? But all that doesn't matter because the 360 has one and the PS3 has none. Walk tall.
I hate that they always make it out like ooh wii sports solld 44 million. Um no they didn't they were given away with the console. Its not like you can buy a wii without it for 200 so to me that is gay. Also wii play come on you buy it with a controler. Wii sucks ps3 rulez
Metal Gear Solid 4 wasn't far from figuring. There's Halo 3 and Gears of War 1 for Xbox 360, but the only truly guaranteed exclusive is Halo, Gears is owned by Epic so eventually (in a long time) it could hit PS3. I didn't buy Xbox 360 for Halo 3 and Gears of War anyway. There are much better games on Xbox 360 (exclusive or not), and PS3 has lots of games that are great, I don't need validation in sales. If sales were determining factors in the quality of a game then Wii would be the greatest console of the decade because it has the best selling games.
no ps3 exclusive on this list damn that fvck up .
Name one PS3 exclusive that has sold over 5 million. lol
GTA IV is down at number 44 with 5.53 million
Dude it's posted by THE SOURCE dude... Where he get those numbers from?

EDIT: disagrees? You guys believe that source Wii dude? That is stupid.
give me one game from microsoft or exclusive they system that can out sale GranTrusmo
what about Resistance 2, Killzone 2, LBP, MGS4 lol o wait never mind.
None of those have sold 5 million +
Bu bu but sales. I'm panatard and I play sales on my tardbox (until it RRODs for the 6th time). I play sales because I've got no game anymore on crapbox :'( Bu bu but wait for E3.
I love the sound of the broken records.
Haha, here comes the PS3 brigade!
Bububu what about Gears 2, Banjo Floppy, SO4, Halo Wars etc, etc.
Generic knee jerk reaction, nuff said... I understand the N4G crowd has a thing against their estimates, and they have reason for that, but this information is available, they just compiled it. /on topic Nintendo. just wow.... Man, MS and Sony each have only one franchise in there. One thing is for sure, Nintendo have always been the first party software kings.
Wow I didn't expect Halo 3 to be above 2
Where is Killzone 2!!!!!
It'll be there by the end of the year. But its too recent to have sold more than 5 million already.
Either way, I know you were being sarcastic, Killzone 2 needs a bigger install base and more marketing but the quality is there.
I doubt KZ2 can beat MGS4 in sales but , there is only one PS3 game in that list which is GTAIV What happened to PS3 Exclusive games ???
They got killzowned.
Based on your logic Ps3 exclusives are not good because they haven't sold 44.5 million copies like wii sports did? So wii sports is the best game ever conceived? Sorry guys but your logic fails in every way...
Hmmmm... Halo 2 had sales of more than 5 million copies in just 3 weeks of availability... and that's with an install base that was --> SMALLER than the current PS3 install base. Halo 3 reached 5 million in 4 months... Will Killzone 2 reach 5 million sales in 4 months or less?
@All-3 Im saying it hasnt reached 5 million as a fact. Halo is a huge franchise with a ton of fans that buy the game in the first month of sale. Killzone doesnt have a large fanbase. Honestly, Killzone 1 wasnt that great. However, it is probably very very close to 5 million now.
So this is just stupid
If Xbox fanboy logic is anything to go by then Gran Turismo 3 must surely be 1.5 times better than Halo 3. As sales = Quality *Waits for disagrees*
FPS = Racing wow I didn't know that so you think Wii sport is the best game EVEA ???? better than KZ2 , MGS4 , Halo 3 , GOW , GeoW and GT. ROFL
he is saying that based on some x-box fanboys logic
He didn't get the point, so he must be another Xbox cheerleader
That's kinda sad
Why isn't world of warcraft on that list?
Well it's obviously console games only...
Say what you will about Nintendo but they have 31 titles on that list of 50 and they were the first party developers for all but 2 of them. That's amazing. Sure there are alot of common games like a bunch of Pokemon, but Nintendo knows how to generate interest in games they make and to appeal to a large user base.
it also shows that nintendo can pump out sh!t as well as quality games and still have the casuals eat it up how do they do it?
lol what my xbox 360 never rrod and i got my xbox 360 May 1 2007 baby and still no problems. lol crap box got no games lol Gta lost and damned,halo wars, star ocean 4 damn crap box got no games now what games are you playing on your ps3 beside killzone 2 please exclusives games only.
I love the sound of crickets.
hmm well let's see... i still hop on to LittleBigPlanet regularly to check out the new levels, i'm replaying MGS4, me and my mate are always playing through the co-op in Resistance, i can never get enough Motorstorm, Everybody's Golf is just too damn addictive, Buzz and SingStar are great with friend's and my mate asked for me to recommend a good horror game, so i told him to check out Siren: Blood Curse and it scared the sh!t out of him... i can't wait for the numerous other exclusives coming to the PS3, from huge action titles like Uncharted 2 and GoW3.. to some brilliant JRPG's like White Knight Chronicles and Atelier Rorona, petrolhead goodness with Gran Turismo 5 and Heavy Rain looks like an exceptional adventure games phew... now onto PSN exclusives Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle Cars is stupidly addictive, im always hopping on to Super Stardust HD and Blast Factor Pixeljunk Monsters is hard, but im trying to get all the rainbows... co-op is fun too, and i'm a huge fan of WipEout HD Fat Princess and Trine are going to rock! ...and that's just exclusive games thanks for asking though :)
I love the sound of cring Xbot
funny as helll lmao
who would have thought wii sports would have 'sold' the most lol
Yep, apparently packaging the game with your system counts as selling the game. Even though you have no choice if you want the game or not.
Yet a few GTAs and Gran Turismo's sold way more minus the Mountain Dew halo cans. In other words, STFU!
You forgot Gears of War is also on that list but you were TRYING to make a point and obviously failed.
It comes with every Wii system. I mean, if that counts then shouldn't Minesweeper and Solitaire be the best selling games of the 2000's decade. Bring on the disagrees from Nintendo fans, but the fact remains, if you bought a Wii you got Wii sports, even if you didn't want it, that in my mind shouldn't count.
Why somebody would buy a Wii is beyond me unless they are part of the casual group that have no idea what they are buying.
DAMN YOU NINTENDO DAMN YOU TO HELLL
lol LBP, MGS4,R2 came out last year sorry those games don't count and fat princess,trine,Gow3,GT5 not even out so please try again.
how about you try school again and learn how to write? yes, this year the only major exclusive has been Killzone 2... but it's an awesome AAA game, there's also been Flower and MLB 09: The Show, both near-AAA games what have you gotten so far? MyFirstRTS aka Halo Wars, a crappy racer, some shoddy Ninja game and a timed exclusive? nice... shame there will be nothing for the Summer and Fall while the trey get's God Of War 3, Uncharted 2, MAG, Infamous and about 20 more exclusives
well by the totals... even tho its is VGchartz... the combined sales of GTA4 show that it has sold extremely well...and wowz at cod4 sales on the 360.... shows how powerful FPS/gun games are for that systems fanbase
Modern Warfare 2 will be an absolute monster!
*looks at list* Yup. I knew it.
Yes, play the game called *sales* 360 fanatics. With your logic, Wii Fit and all the Nintendo games combined are the greatest games of all time and completely slaughters whatever's on the PS3, PS3, and the 360. Good going guys. You claim you have so many games and yet you find time to bash the PS3 as if Sony came and slaughtered your entire family.
"You claim you have so many games and yet you find time to bash the PS3 as if Sony came and slaughtered your entire family." I don't claim it, VGChartz does. With numbers to back it up. And it's not only that they don't buy games. They don't play the ones they own either. http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... So, what do you when you don't play games then?
well the Wii is leading the xbox in sales, and the PS3 is leading the xbox in quality. and before you disagree name a Xbox exclusive that is higher quality than Uncharted, KZ2 or The Show. the bottom line is PS3 gamers want to play games high in quality and Xbox gamers want to play high in sales numbers.
Halo 3 and Gears of War 1 & 2. All three of the games have better sales than any PS3 exclusive and more online activity, which means more people still play them. How do you measure a game's quality? Oh right, by personal bias. That's the only thing you can resort to. "the bottom line is PS3 gamers want to play games high in quality and Xbox gamers want to play high in sales numbers." That's contradictory. You need to buy the games in order to play them. And since you don't buy games you don't play them.
