Each and every year, video game developers push to come out with that mega blockbuster that shatters sales. And each and every year, the final list of which games sold the best is always slightly baffling. While we gamers have our top titles, the general public doesn’t always feel that way. So how about this year?
Well, MTV Multiplayer has combined the numbers across consoles to figure out the top 5 selling games of 2008. You might be surprised. List after the jump!
Here’s the list, numbers in millions of units:
1. Wii Play 5.28
2. Madden NFL ‘09 5.25
3. Grand Theft Auto IV 5.22
4. Mario Kart w/ Wheel 5.00
5. Call of Duty: World at War 4.63
And there you have it. If I had a chance to guess, I probably would have picked MGS 4, Left 4 Dead or Gears of War 2 to be on there, but I would have been way, way off. Apparently what I know couldn’t fill a truck.
So, how about you guys? Surprised at all? About what you’d expect?
