merielle, console gaming was pretty much all we had at the start of gaming history, but you're a little to young to remember pong and atari 2600.

wii sports / duckhunt / Super Mario Bros- apparently people are buying the game and getting the system for free with it

I don't think wii sports should count. I mean it is given out with the system so does that really count as you "buying" it.

Note the lack of WoW, the expansion packs, the Sims or any of the Sims expansion packs in the top selling list. The two most successful games (although is the Sims actually a game?) ever, completely ignored.

Blizzard makes well over a billion dollars a year from WoW, every year, year in, year out. On any chart that wants to even vaguely wave at accuracy, that has to count for more than a game that no-one actually buys because it's bundled with the system. By that standard, Minesweeper is probably a "best-selling" game.

It's odd how many people are so desperate to kill off the PC as a gaming platform. Game publishers, game reviewers, pretty much everyone associated with gaming in the media. Why?

@Wentzel142

Yer 'bout a few years late on the uptake, there. That discussion's long done, with the general consensus being Nintendo will pit Jumpman on yer house if'n you argue that bundle-sales are a cheap way of boosting sell count.

Wii Sports shouldn't count as the best-selling video game. It was included with the Wii, so you had no choice but to buy it.

Why does PC only have one statistic? PC is teh baest!

And that system failure stat reminded me of the time I got a broken Wii, and my replacement was broken as well, so I got a second replacement.

I find the lack of Ocarina of Time, Half Life, and FF VII in the Top 5 list disturbing.

ehh, I wish I knew the percentage for the amount of this that is wrong and/or more than 5 years old information. Sure there's sources, but I don't think the infographics have much verified information.

Wii sports is the best selling video game of all time? Can you really consider a game that comes packaged with every single new Wii system as a game sale? I mean sure, I've got a copy with my Wii, but if I had a choice I guarantee you I certainly would not have gotten it!
