The top ten videogame brands from 1996 to 2012 have been revealed for the first time – and FIFA’s number one in terms of both copies sold and money made.
The data, which GfK Chart-Track has issued to Eurogamer, shows that EA’s football game is massively popular, and has been since the Megadrive days – however, it’s the most recent one – FIFA 12 – that is the best seller.
Mario is second in terms of copies sold, and third in terms of revenue – the best selling Mario brand game is Mario Kart Wii, which is also the UK’s biggest selling single-format game.
Call of Duty is third by number of copies sold, and second in revenue – the figures include Game of the Year editions and so on, but it’s worth noting that the biggest selling CoD game is Black Ops.
