01:58
The 100 best selling games in North America last year - Next Generation


1. The stats were compiled using NPD stats as well as various public, analyst and publisher figures and dead reckoning.

2. Reviews were compiled via Metacritic and Gamerankings using the average rating for highest selling platform.

3. Reviews snippets are chosen for representing general view and corresponding with average score. No value is attached to the review chosen. Thanks to those journos and outlets whose snippets we have used.

4. Genres are very broadly defined for analysis purposes.

5. Games or platform versions of games released prior to January 1st 2006 are not included. Expansion packs, remixes and reissues not included. Games released after January 1st 2007 are not included.

6. We have not been able to gain reliable stats on downloaded games. These sales are not included. Games not available at retail are not included. Mobile phone games are not included.

7. Do bear in mind that games released late in the year likely to sell more copies in the months ahead, while those released a year ago are probably just about done. There is nothing ‘final’ about this list.

The entries work like this...
