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.
