The Top-Selling Video Games Of All-Time

By | source:Here Sep 14th, 2023

Video games have come a long way from the primitive days of Pong. Today, millions of people play video games on their phones, computers and consoles. And while it used to be enough to just have fun playing video games, these days you also have to know how many copies they’ve sold. If a game doesn’t sell well, it can be taken off store shelves pretty quickly (as evidenced by EA canceling Fee). So without further ado!


Minecraft is an open-world sandbox game that allows players to build with a variety of different blocks in a 3D procedurally generated world. The player can break blocks and place them elsewhere, producing things such as tools, weapons and buildings. It also provides players with combat against monsters and hostile humans. Minecraft has been sold over 106 million copies worldwide on several platforms since its release in 2011, making it one of the best selling video games of all time.


Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V was released in 2013, and it’s the best-selling game of all time. The game sold over 70 million copies worldwide, making it one of the most profitable entertainment properties ever created. The action takes place in a fictional city called Los Santos–a parody of Los Angeles–and features three playable protagonists: Michael De Santa (an aging criminal), Franklin Clinton (his former partner) and Trevor Philips (a psychopathic maniac). Players can switch between these characters at any time while playing through missions or engaging in side activities like yoga classes or heist planning meetings with their crew members.



It’s hard to believe that Tetris was originally released in 1984, because it feels like the game has been around forever. That’s probably because it has. In fact, Tetris has sold over 100 million copies and is considered by many as one of the most influential video games ever created. The game was designed by Alexey Pajitnov who wanted to create an addictive puzzle game that would help him pass time while working at a Russian software company called Elorg (Electronic Research Institute). He started working on it during his free time until he eventually got fired for spending too much time working on this new project instead of doing his job! Luckily for us, Elorg eventually decided they liked what they saw in this little gem and published Tetris under their label; thus launching its worldwide success story!


Wii Sports

Wii Sports is a collection of sports minigames included with the Wii console. It was bundled with the Wii console and is the best selling game of all time, having sold 82.9 million units since its release in 2006.


Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds

Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds, or PUBG, is a battle royale game that was released in 2017. The game is available on Steam and Xbox One and has sold over 75 million units worldwide. Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds is a multiplayer online battle royale game played by 100 players who parachute onto an island where they must scavenge for weapons and equipment while battling other players to the death until only one person remains standing.


Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a racing video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch. It is an enhanced port of Mario Kart 8, which was released for the Wii U in 2014. The game includes all previously released DLC characters and tracks, plus two new characters (Dry Bones and Bowser Jr.), four new vehicles (the ATV, SNES TURBO mode, Smart Steer feature) and an additional 200cc class option that allows players to race at speeds up to 60 mph on certain courses.



As you can see, there are many popular video games out there and it’s hard to choose just one. However, these five are among the most successful in history and will likely continue selling for years to come!
