All best selling 3rd party titles per Nintendo console generation titles according to NPD.

  • N64 – WCW/NWO Revenge
  • NGC – Sonic Adventure 2
  • Wii – Guitar Hero World Tour
  • Wii U – LEGO Dimensions
  • Switch – Mario & Rabbids: Kingdom Battle

Incase you need more reasons to look at why Nintendo is doomed if they can't milk their overrated franchises anymore. Pretty terrible best selling list overall.

Okay? This actually doesn't mean all that much... Other consoles don't differ too much, you still get the bloated third-party releases.

The Switch is a Nintendo gaming machine. This isn't news to anyone.

So what are the best selling third party titles on other platforms?

I'm guessing something like Fifa, Fifa, GTA?

Damn the sales number is terrible. Why Nintendo fans won't support 3rd party boggles me. Nintendo fans request more 3rd party games even though they wont support it later.

Nintendo fans are used to steak and lobster, not hotdogs and krab.

Makes sense when you think about it, it came very early in the GCN's life and it features a popular character.

Those seem pretty random. I'm sure even the publishers were surprised.

Yeah, but I kind of thought the Sonic Adventure games were a bit clunky from what little I played of them. I must be really wrong.

Funny, because most of my Nintendo collections (GC-Switch) are pretty occupied by third party games.

And it might explain why Sonic keeps appearing on Nintendo platforms and Soulcalibur hasn't in dogs years.

@HalcyonScarlet:Oh they are. Sonic Adventure 2 is by no means a great game or anything. IMO most of it is garbage and the only fun parts were the Sonic/Shadow levels and that Chaos sidegame thingy.

@nintendoboy16: There was a spinoff on the Wii if I recall correctly but yeah after 4 the series went downhill so it's no surprise we didn't see a thing on Nintendo's consoles. SC6 resurrected the franchise and there's rumours about a Switch port eventually so who knows.
