10 Best Selling Video Games of All Time

Wii Sports is the bestselling sports game of all time, so that’s no surprise. But it’s a platformer, so it makes it hard to compare it to other sports games. The next best sports game is Madden, and that’s the second best-selling sports game ever. More shocking is that Wii Sports isn’t even in the top 10 for best-selling games, at least based on the number of copies sold. It’s easy to understand why. This was the first game to feature the motion-control remote, and that’s all it did. The only reason this game is on this list is that the motion control technology has been used in hundreds of other Wii games since then. It’s hard to say which is the best motion control sports game ever. But it’s clear that this game has a lot of life left in it.
