The Top Selling Video Games of the 2000s (Single & Multiplatform)

by Jacob Mazel, posted on 05 February 2010 / 49,648 Views

Have you ever wondered what the best selling video games of the 2000s were? If you have, then I have some good news for you – I’ve assembled two lists of the best selling software worldwide in the 2000s. One list looks at game sales on a single platform. The second list totals game sales across all videogame platforms. All bundled software is included in determining the list - whether it is packaged with Wii, X360, PS3, DS, PSP or any other system. Both lists cover the ten years ending 2009, that’s 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 for the lazy. Since we track data on a weekly-time scale, our years are 364 days usually. Years are 365 days. To compensate, we’ve thrown in an extra week. So this data is for the 521 weeks ending January 2, 2010.

Before you read any further, let me warn you. If you dislike Nintendo, Wii, or DS, this list will terrify you. It was an excellent decade for Nintendo software overall. Of the 50 best selling games on a single video game platform (no PC or Cellphone content is included), 31 games were for Nintendo systems. I did a preliminary version of this decadal software overview in April – and Nintendo systems had 31 of the top 50 games back then too. In second place, 11 of the top selling games of the decade were on Sony systems. That is down from April – back then Sony systems had 13 of the top 50 games of the decade. Microsoft systems had eight of the top 50 games for the decade – up from six in April. The top fifty accounts for 1 out of every 8 games purchased in the 2000s.

For the decade, top software was split in the following manner.

System Top Games
Wii 11
DS 11
PS2 9
X360 6
GBA 3
GC 3
GB 3
Xbox 2
PS3* 2

* The 51st game on the list of best sellers for the decade is a PSP game - but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on PS3 kicked it out of the top 50 during the last week of the decade.

These figures should appear at least a little bit surprising as Wii and DS both have more top hit software than PS2 even though the PS2 hardware base was bigger than either platform in 2000-2009. Software shipments for the decade were also marginally in Sony’s favor even though more top hits were on Nintendo systems. Between PS1, PS2, PS3, and PSP roughly 2.4b Playstation branded games were shipped in the 2000s. Nonetheless, only 11 titles for those four systems topped 6m units in the decade. At CES 2010, Microsoft announced that Xbox + X360 software had topped 500m units through December 2009. Thus, even with only 20% of the software shipments Sony attained in the decade, there were eight Xbox branded games to top 6m units in the decade. Nintendo is a different beast entirely. Between the remnants of GB, SNES, N64 software through 2002, GC, GBA through mid decade, and Wii and DS late in the decade roughly 2.0b Nintendo branded games were shipped in the 2000s. Even with only 5/6 the volume software shipped as the Sony total, there were 31 Nintendo-branded games to top 6m units in the decade.

It is also important to recognize just how few companies produce hits of this caliber. For the entire decade, only Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, Sega, Activision-Blizzard, Electronic Arts, Take Two and Sqaure-Enix actually produced 6m level hits on a single platform. Nintendo and Microsoft were actually remarkably successful at producing 6m+ single platform hits for GC and Xbox. Those systems never topped 25m units, but Xbox had two 6m+ caliber hits and GC had three.

Of the 50 games to top 6m in the decade on a single platform, 34 were still selling past 7m – 68%. Thirty of the 34 games to reach 6m then continued past 8m units. Twenty four of those thirty titles, or 80%, topped 9m units. A total of 23 games topped 10m units on a single platform for the decade. It is only once you get into the stratosphere – the 15m+ level that the drop offs really accelerate. Twelve games topped 15m units for the decade out of the thousands released. Only six topped 20m units. Peeling back to a more general view of the industry, Nintendo is the only video game publisher in the world to release games which top 10m units on a single platform with any regularity.

The question you should be asking is: What about for multiplatform titles? Surely there were 10m+ hits coming from companies not named Nintendo. See for yourself – there were 30 games to top 10m units on a single or multiple videogame platforms in the 2000s.

29 Pokemon Fire Red/Leaf Green Nintendo GBA Jan-04 10.49
30 New Super Mario Bros Wii Nintendo Wii Nov-09 10.03

This list shows once again how difficult it is to make super-hit software. Even with multiple platforms to work with – entries labeled “multi” were on at least three platforms – only Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Activision, Take Two, and Sega released games to top 10m units in the decade. Even with only single platform releases, Nintendo has 17 of the top 30 games on the list above. Sony and Microsoft have another three of the slots. Take Two and Activision each have four games that have topped 10m units. Thus we can say that of the seven companies to produce at least one 10m unit level hit for the 2000s, only five companies were able to produce multiple 10m+ caliber hits. Activision and Take Two are the only two companies of those five not pushing their own hardware platform. To be fair, EA does have several games that just missed the 10m cut off.

Cracking the top multiplatform list for the 2000s should be the goal of every company in the industry if future decades end up with distributions anything like this decade – the top thirty multiplatform titles accounted for 1 out of 10 videogames purchased over the entire decade. The elite thirty totals nearly 510m units. As a final note, the fact that New Super Mario Bros. Wii entered a top thirty multiplatform decadal list with only a month and a half of availability is pretty damn scary. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it in the top twenty of the 2010s. It should easily get to 25m or 30m as it will remain the defining 2D platforming experience on the Wii. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 also sold a staggering 15m in about six weeks worldwide – but the title is in a far more competitive genre and is probably not even a lock to chart in the top games of the 2010s.

@Baalzamon: But the Metroid Prime series is better than the Call of Duty series and the Halo series. And the Metroid Prime series is one of the best series I have played.


KLucifer (on 09 February 2010)

LoL....people fighting over who had the first motion controller.....Le Stick is all i have to say....that would be neither nintendo or sony...Datasoft was the company making this controller for atari 2600 and commodore 64...


Podings (on 08 February 2010)

I have eight of those games. That seems fair. Very polarized mature/family wise, but generally pick-up-and-play friendly games seem to win out. GTA is very easy to figure out, and anyone who can drive a car (and even those who can't) can play Gran Turismo. And it goes without saying that Nintendo's games are easy to get into. Even the shooters at the top are light-weight, and we have to go to 31 before anything relatively complex shows up in the form of Final Fantasy X. The market speaks, and it tells us to make games that people can figure out.


JUG (on 08 February 2010)

I suddenly feel like I ought to own Nintendogs.


Hephaestos (on 08 February 2010)

i'm against adding handheld to console sales (unless it's a remake).


LinKing12 (on 08 February 2010)

@Baalzamon: Just as long as you see that Sony was not the first one with motion control and that they were indeed inspired by Nintendo (I would say they copied Nintendo, but whatever).


burgerstein (on 08 February 2010)

I'm in awe. All the butthurt comments are just, wow. If you follow sales none of this is coming as a surprise.


ruff_romeo (on 07 February 2010)

Hats off to Nintendo as a software designer! They are responsible for some top franchises, especially Mario!!!!


Baalzamon (on 07 February 2010)

I'm not saying fps games are hardcore...I'm saying that Wii Fit, Wii Sports, Wii Play, Nintendogs, Mario Kart Wii, Brain Age are not hardcore. Also, sorry LinKing, but I've never smoked or drank in my life, so I couldn't tell you there. I think Nintendo is fricking awesome...but it just isn't quite what it was in the N64 era to me.


Cheebee (on 07 February 2010)

LinkKing12, thank you for that. Good to see there are some people who aren't blinded by bias. @ Baalzamon: Do you seriously, *honestly* believe either Sony or Microsoft would be releasing their Wand/Arc/Gem and Natal respectively, if it wasn't for Nintendo and their Wii? Because if you do, just say so and make it clear to everybody here you're a blinded, biased troll. I never EVER said Sony are 'copying Nintendo'. Where do you see that? You're making things up that I never said. I never even mentioned Eyetoy. I said MS & Sony are creating their own 'Nintendo-inspired' motion control devices. And that's being modest, if you take a look at Sony's wand and compare it to the Wii remote. You think it's not at the very least 'inspired' by the Nintendo's controller? Wii is a success, Nintendo's competitors see that and they want a piece of the pie. As for your other comments, way to troll. Everybody here can see what you are.


LinKing12 (on 06 February 2010)

Hey, Baalzamon, can I have some of what you're smoking? But seriously, do you live in a cave? Did you never play Duck Hunt on the NES? What do you call that?.... no, it's not Sony starting motion control, it's Nintendo being ahead by almost 30 years! I would even venture to say that there are others who had motion control before Nintendo (here's something else: have you ever been to an arcade?) But as far as in-home entertainment, Nintendo is the innovator; and it always has been. And the whole Metroid thing you were talking about is a matter of opinion... so I'll just say that there are a host of critics that would strongly disagree with you.


Naum (on 06 February 2010)

Not to worry the ones complaining about those Nintendo games are just kids who still thinks FPS games are "Hardcore" :-)


Baalzamon (on 06 February 2010)

@Rainbow Yoshi: that'd be because Metroid Prime is Nintendo's horrible version of an action game...they are good at the casual games, need to stop trying with action stuff.


Baalzamon (on 06 February 2010)

@Cheebee: hahahahahahha you are funny, playstation has had eyetoy for years...Wii is just an improved copy of that...please don't say ps3 motion control is copying Wii...playstation started the whole motion idea.


Cheebee (on 06 February 2010)

What the heck is wrong with all you crybabies? I mean seriously like 90% of the comments here is hating on Nintendo, and not in a constructive way either. Geez, what is this, IGN PS3? Get over yourselves. "Oh boohoo Nintendo games don't count, they're for kids, it's just minigames, casuals are ruining my hawtcore world, Nintendo makes crap games, boohoohoo" Stop it already. :/ If you don't like the fact that Nintendo's wiping the floor with both Microsoft and Sony, well tough luck: they are! And your precious Xbox 360 and PS3 are falling over themselves to try and play catch up with Nintendo, creating their own Nintendo-inspired motion control devices. Only took them 4 years. You know why? 'Cos the casuals are profitable. They're paying for your 'hawtc0re' games.


abcdario (on 06 February 2010)

Love to see the Play Station outshined by the Mighty Ninty, LOOOOOOOOOOOOL So few titles in the top 30, and some of them are multiplataform (thanks Xbox, finally you where good for something . . . thanks 4 undershining even more the PS ! XD XD XD) PS: Yeah, i m a Troll on the saturday evenings when i watch the full moon >D

Pharaoh (on 06 February 2010)

No one answered my question yet. Do you personally know anyone who owns Mario and Sonic at the Olympics?


Lyrikalstylez (on 06 February 2010)

The only thing this list accomplishes is showing the downfall that these casual gamers seem to be leading us!!


sonicshuffle (on 06 February 2010)

Funny how some of the games in the top 10 are just a little compilation of games. Could you imagine making one of those little games and it outselling a game a companies worked years on?


zuvuyeay (on 06 February 2010)

great lists source,by the way good stuff


Rainbow Yoshi (on 06 February 2010)

Well done Nintendo! Glad to see so many outstanding titles. But there is not a single Metroid Title on the list.


Baalzamon (on 06 February 2010)

would've been a lot cooler to have a "2000's casual audience chart...basically family/children's games, and a 2000's real video game player chart.


Baalzamon (on 06 February 2010)

That's cool how Nintendo plagues the chart because it is a completely different kind of system aimed at the much broader, casual audience...not to mention didn't Wii Sports come with the system???...that honestly should not even count.


Badassbab (on 06 February 2010)

Hell of a lot of Ninty games...not surprised at all. Personally I think the top Nintendo games on the list are a bit rubbish compared to games by other developers and even by Nintendo's own standards. Still it's all about money and they've got kids, parents and casuals on their side.


Mr. sickVisionz (on 06 February 2010)

Nintendo runs the world. If you're mad about it, stop arguing on boards and buy games. You can hate on soccer moms, little kids and casuals all you want but it seems like they support their favorite games way more than you h4rdc0r3 guys do.


RolStoppable (on 06 February 2010)

Looking at the top 10 of this list made me cringe and die a little bit inside. There's a non-Nintendo game.


Cheebee (on 06 February 2010)

Oh my god. I'm astonished by the outright hate that's displayed towards Nintendo here by some. Geez guys, get a grip, seriously. I noticed some ban-worthy comments here... I mean it's okay if you don't like them or their games, but you don't have to act so incredibly immature about it. They're the most succesful developer and publisher, deal with it.


jdelanoy (on 06 February 2010)

Nintendo played an interesting hand last decade. I'm just glad that -real- gaming studios are smart enough to look at the GameCube and the Wii for what they really are. A game console released in 2006 that can't play DVDs? Really!?


Pharaoh (on 06 February 2010)

If only Mario and Sonic at the Olympics wasn't on this list. Seriously who bought that? Does anyone know someone who had that game, or better yet still has it and hasn't burned their house down because of it? Well I don't know anyone who has Nintendogs either, so it just might be my demographic.


buaskoor (on 06 February 2010)

Nintendo is the best


Crazymann (on 05 February 2010)

If by "shitty ass" you mean "masterful in simplicity and gaming in its purest form" then, yes, you are indeed correct. Nintendo does indeed have "shitty ass" games tho(ugh)".

Nintendo has shitty ass games tho

this just shows brain damaged people should not be trusted to have money. what has happened to gaming it used to be good in till the noobs who think killing people is wrong.

There is another version of Need for Speed Underground 2 that launched under a slightly different name at the same time as the other versions that is included in the total.

@RisenTerran: I completely agree. I don't even know why those two other scrubs are in the console business.


BMaker11 (on 05 February 2010)

I was warned...but still. Nintendogs, Wii Fit, etc. selling so much? What has happened to gaming?


TheSource (on 05 February 2010)

Freetalklive you said the exact same thing in the early version...did you forget already that decades end in the year ending 9? Wii Sports has sold to 35% of all Japanese Wii owners - it still would have been numero uno even without the bundle...get over it.


solracbrit (on 05 February 2010)

@FreeTalkLive Exactly as it looks right now, because the decade ended last year. It started in 2000 and finished in 2009, those are 10 years...


KouSze (on 05 February 2010)

I am tired of seeing "Wii Sports" on these lists. 1. Its a demo disc. 2. Its a bundled disc that comes in the Wii.


Kwaidd (on 05 February 2010)

"But even then, the Wii having even more sales compared to PS2 games and having less userbase should tell you something." That the PS2 was/is the ultimate dust collecting casual gamers machine??? =p


FreeTalkLive (on 05 February 2010)

I wonder how the data will change once the decade finally ends. Certainly Wii Sports Resort, NSMB Wii, Halo 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Wii Fit Plus and Grand Theft Auto IV will all move up a few spots. Will Super Mario Galaxy 2 make the list? Will any other games make the list? We will know in less than a year than the 2000s decade ends.


RisenTerran (on 05 February 2010)

All Sales charts should just be called Nintencharts from now on. -_- Nintendo's game making skill is simply unparalelled. It's the reason I still follow their console brand. Whoever they develop for I buy.


darthdevidem01 (on 05 February 2010)

hmm so Gran Turismo 3 WAS the highest selling exclusive of last gen on consoles


Beuli2 (on 05 February 2010)

Amazing how NSMB Wii made into the list in the dawn of the new decade.


BigD3FW (on 05 February 2010)

Wow! 9 out of the top 10 were Nintendo. $$$


otherZinc (on 05 February 2010)

PS3, no exclusives? Nintendo is ridiculous! Halo:Reach will be next on that list for M$.

well, the first the spot are not really well deserved.. Wii Sport = Wii, Wii Play = WiiMote. And the rest its only Mario and Pokemon, kinda sad

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto:_San_Andreas 18.17-17.33=0.84 21.5+0.84=22.34M San Andreas sold at least 22.34M including PC.

Sqaure-Enix Wii Fit = Wii Fit + Wii Fit Plus w/ BB Grand Theft Auto: Vice City : you forgot the version included in the double pack on XB ! http://vgchartz.com/worldtotals.php?name=Vice+City&console=&publisher=&genre=&minSales=0&results=50&sort=Total idem here : http://vgchartz.com/worldtotals.php?name=Grand+Theft+Auto+III&console=&publisher=&genre=&minSales=0&results=50&sort=Total Note to webmaster : It would be good to have filters to separate different games like this ones : http://vgchartz.com/worldtotals.php?name=Mario+%26+Sonic+at+the+Olympic+Games&console=&publisher=&genre=&minSales=0&results=50&sort=Total Need for Speed: Underground 2 : 9.80M on VGC and 11.03M on your list : http://vgchartz.com/worldtotals.php?name=Need+for+Speed+Underground+2&console=&publisher=&genre=&minSales=0&results=50&sort=Total So that's only 10 games (excluding Wii Sports) that sold more than SMB3 (17.28M) in the 2000's.


Shonen (on 05 February 2010)

That only shows one thing ...No one makes batter games than Nintendo dont matter what list you are doing at the top sits Big N...


Marco (on 05 February 2010)

Wii Fit, Wii Play, Wii Sports, Mario...sorry, but i think nintendo games are very boring.(only zelda is good) It is my opinion. The best games are Metal Gear Solid 4(PS3) and Final Fantasy 7(PS1) for me. But the games are not in the top 3 (sales)..this is not fair. This games are so epic and referenz.


chickenLittle (on 05 February 2010)

*looks at top ten list* all of them are dominated by casual crappy games. pretty sad.


heruamon (on 05 February 2010)

Nintendo doing big things!...360 isn't bad either and after this year, it will likely have 8 on this list...maybe 7, since Gears might get bumped.


Miss piggy (on 05 February 2010)

You would be interesting to split these data into eur,usa and jp market ...


Ostro (on 05 February 2010)

I like to see GC actually doing well in that list. GTA really helps the other systems ^^


Bamboleo (on 05 February 2010)

Gotta love the Nintendo Domination


Jin_Shihouin (on 05 February 2010)

2.4 billion games on Sony systems 2.0 billion games on Nintendo systems That's pretty epic.


Kenryoku_Maxis (on 05 February 2010)

@Colonel-Killzone There's evidence to show that just as many or more Wiis have been modded as PS2s comparing the systems percentages. Heck, the Wii has an entire modding community centered around a 'Mod Channel' ,not to mention entire games built around mods and stuff in pre built games such as Twilight Princess and Smash Bros Brawl. But even then, the Wii having even more sales compared to PS2 games and having less userbase should tell you something. Especially since it was able to rise to the top of the charts with games like WiiFit, Mario Kart Wii and WiiPlay even before it had half of the PS2s userbase.
