Due to Nintendo Domination we need to see the top 30 at least please. Thanks.

This might not be a 'cool' opinion on GAF but MK8/MK8D is arguably my game of the generation though. I've had so much gameplay time out of it and it's always incredibly fun. Need a sequel or DLC asap Nintendo damnit.

Not unexpected. How many people who buy a Nintendo Switch (or any Nintendo console, for that matter) end up never buying a single first party title? You could probably count them on one hand. On PS4/Xbox, on the other hand, this isn't uncommon at all.

MK8 is my game of the generation up there with BOTW. This only makes sense.

eah I mean you dont buy a swith to play Call of Duty or FIFA

Nintendos competitors are small indy games, so its a bit unfair to compare.
But good for them. Great hardware and software sales. They have a good strategy right now. Hope they keep going like this

Isnt that like 90% of all Switch games?, j/k :messenger_beaming: . Much more games on XB1 and PS4, and games released weekly. I am surprised there arent more PS4 games there though, with how successful the console has been.

They should buy Sega
I mean, you jest, but if Sega had to go first party it wouldn't be a terrible fit. Not that I think it will happen or want it to happen. I'd take any of the big 3 over Amazon, Apple, Google, or Epic though.

Sega has a big PC division too, which most people forget. Nintendo making their own PC client with cross-buy (even just for retro games) would be sweet.

If we took away Nintendo it would be just as much of a wash with almost all PS4 games.

Either way shows how incredibly important exclusives are, and just how successful and popular the supposedly 'outdated' traditional approach to games still is.

Also I really can't wait for Switch 2. With the strides Nvidea have made with DLSS and performance, it will hopefully be even closer to the other 9th gen system than the Switch has been with the other 8th systems.

Goddamn acronyms, i.e. I'm not a Nintendo playing ergo I have no idea what the hell "ACNH" & "SSBU" are. But I do get MK = Mario Kart.

Nintendo should be left out from these lists as they are freak of console world.

Having mostly only 1st party AAA-games while 90-99%% of the rest is garbage = people buy them as only option

Ps4 vs xbox would be more interesting.

And switch is handheld system anyway, different audience

Super Smash Brothers Ultimate

Animal Crossing New Horizons

Breath Of The Wild

Super Mario Odyssey

the others I think people will be able to work out themselves even if they don't play Nintendo, although I'm sure a few will be confused how older Mortal Kombat's are doing so well, so well done getting Mario Kart.

Just imagine if The Last of Us 2 had been worth playing? It might have even appeared on the top 10 of something outside of "most disapointing"

And it's a great strategy as Nintendo already made over 85% of total PlayStation division profits during 8 years of PS4 CY in just half of that time.


It's risky though because if their next gimmick fails, like the WiiU, they're completely fucked.

>Pokémon XY on even a top 1000 list
And that's when I realised some people are morons.
Feel like BOTW should be in top 3, and MK8 around 8-10th tbh.

Profits=!Revenue

In business operating profits is the most important part not revenue.

Sony had 1 billion profit just in the Q2 with PS (Sony Group had 4 billion in total).
Not sure where that graphic comes from.
What was the profit of Nintendo in the last quarter?

Btw, Pokemon Sun/Moon sold 16M. Where did this 25M in top 4 came from: "Pokemon SuMo(3DS) - 25.09M - 2016" ? If the number is correct, it should be top 3.


Sales wise, amazing gen for both of them.

We don't have any PS top sales, but they shared some numbers (Summer 2019):
Uncharted - 16.25M
Spider-Man - 13.2M
TLOU Remaster - 12M (20M total)
God of War - 11M
Horizon Zero Dawn 10M

Some unconfirmed numbers:
Gran Turismo Sport - 8M
Infamous SS - 6M
Uncharted Collection - 5.7M
Ratchet - 5M

They still need to update TLOU2, Ghost of Tsushima and others.
