Top 20 Best-Selling Games of the Decade Revealed

NPD has revealed the top 20 best-selling games of the decade in the United States, and to the surprise of no one, Call of Duty dominates the list, however, none of its many releases managed to grab the number one spot of the best-selling game of the decade. That honor belongs to Rockstar Games and Grand Theft Auto V. Meanwhile, Red Dead Redemption 2, Minecraft, Mario Kart, The Elder Scrolls, Star Wars, Battlefield, Zelda, and Destiny are also all represented.

Now, it's important to remember this top 20 is only for the United States market, however, the global ranking probably doesn't look much different. And in terms of what the best-selling games are of the previous decade, well, there's a little bit less diversity this decade and a whole lot less Call of Duty dominance.
