“The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time”/Nintendo“The Legend of Zelda” won multiple game of the year awards in 1998, but was it the best seller?

Starting from the humble days of “Pong” and “Space Invaders,” video games have grown into a multi-billion-dollar industry, with single games garnering hundreds of millions of sales.

As the audience for video games has grown there have been major shifts in the mainstream market; only a few large publishers and popular franchises have earned permanent footholds in the list of best-sellers.

A video game industry analyst from the NPD group recently released a list of the top-selling game of each year dating back to 1995, including physical and digital copies. While some games like “Tetris” and “Minecraft” have each sold more than 100 million copies over time, the year-by-year list reflects the changing interests of gamers as time has progressed.
