Top Successful Video Games

    Currys PC World and Logitech have pulled together a report and found that not a single game in the top 50 best-selling video games of all time features a solo femme-facing protagonist.

    Outrageously, the list consists of games that are either male-centric (38 percent) or games that let a player pick the protagonist’s gender (48 percent)!

    While recent AAA game announcements are showing a much-needed change in the industry, the figures show just how previous big releases have arguably sidelined female gamers.

    Other findings include:

    • The top three biggest genres are centered around action and violence –  action-adventure, shooters, and RPGs.
    • The five lowest genres were arcade games, puzzle games, simulation/virtual life, miscellaneous, and driving/racing.
    • Five racing games did make it onto the list, even if four of them are Mario Kart games, with the one non-MK game being Need for Speed: Most Wanted.

    The top ten best-selling video games are:

    1. Tetris
    2. Minecraft
    3. Grand Theft Auto V
    4. Wii Sports
    5. Player Unknown’s Battleground
    6. Pokémon Red/Blue/Yellow
    7. Super Mario Bros.
    8. Mario Kart Wii
    9. Wii Sports Resort
    10. New Super Mario Bros.
