IGN: The NPD group has shared the best selling games in the United States for each year beginning in 1995.
That's a pretty, for lack of a better word, monotonous list there.
What an incredible dull list. Modern gamers are very boring with their taste in games.
Modern US gamers, that is. Since this list is US sales only.
In Europe is basically the same.
@Imalwaysright - Yeah, except that four out of 23 places are Madden. Those would surely be different. I believe COD would be up there, so would GTA and the Nintendo titles quoted, but this is not about our assumptions, or beliefs, no matter how correct they would prove to be. This is about the statistics. And these statistics reflect the USA. That doesn't mean they are not similar to Europe, but it's not a representation of European sales.
Did anyone else notice that in the slide show it shows a picture of the 1st mortal kombat yet it says mortal kombat 3. Obviously this Collin guy that did this article has never actually played mortal kombat
Toasty! Sorry, could resist.
Call of Duty used to be brilliant to be fair. I bought Modern warfare 2 and Black Ops on day one and have no regrets. They were deserving of their success at one point.

"Clever things make people feel stupid, and unexpected things make them feel scared."
So pretty much since last gen started mp focused games top the list of best selling games each and every year.
Black Opps III would win this year if it wasn’t for RDR2 bhaha
Nintendo did it right in the 64 days. What great games
