Well Microsoft finally got a game to the top of the Japanese charts...

But... But... Minecraft is dying! I know because some youtuber told me! Seriously though, 9 years and Minecraft is still topping charts? Was GTA 5 even this popular?

What do you mean "Was GTA 5 even this popular"? Your only point of reference is how high it's charting by years, and GTA 5 isn't 9 years old. Minecraft has sold more, but it is also significantly cheaper and on more platforms. I'd say they are about equally impressive.
