The NPD Group has today released a top-10 chart of the best-selling PC games in North America for 2002. Unsurprisingly, the chart is dominated by Electronic Arts' The Sims, with the original game retaining fifth position despite being almost three years old. Other games in the Sims series accounted for no fewer than four of the remaining positions.
