Mario has sold more games than any other game character, taking into account all the spin-offs he's starred in, so that would be my guess. I would also say that the Super Mario (Bros. to Galaxy 2) series is the biggest selling game franchise of all time. Super Mario Bros. alone sold around 40 million units.

'Which Game Franchise Has Sold the Most?'

I'll say EA's NHL series since it's been around since 1994 or before and because they come out with a new one every year. Plus I'm biased toward hockey. I'm sure I'm wrong.

I think the Mario franchise has sold the most copies to date. I didn't google it today, but I'm sure I've googled it in the past.

@Ducez_III I'm sure you're right. Mario has been around since the Donkey Kong arcade game since 1981, or 82 or so.

@thermalmotion Good on you. You haven't owned the best shooter of all time, and one of the hands down greatest games of all time.


Keep playing your indie titles, hipster.

My guess is that it could be GTA. There are many games in the franchise, most of them are available on multiple platforms and they usually sell extremely well. I just hope it's not Call of Duty...

@Zombie97 Super Mario Bros. on the NES sold something in the region of 40 million games, pretty impressive when you consider that's sales on one systems.

@Zombie97 I despise CoD, but I'd prefer that to do better than GTA. Although that's not likely.

I think it might be The Sims that has sold the most. Surely its up there if you include all the expansions.

@biggest_loser At one point I remember reading somewhere it was the best selling game series, but this was some time before mobile took off.


The other big ones are Mario of course, and Tetris, however each of those are a bit unfair as you can add up all the variants and such. If we're talking just one series, as in an original game and then games that are considered direct sequels, then it might be The Sims.

Honestly it already paints a bad picture for the next Call of Duty when they still don't have the full specs for the game two weeks before release. This port is going to be just terrible I know it.

Well since there are so many Final Fantasies I would guess that franchise has the most sold.

I was kinda hoping you talked about The Evil Within's headless glitch. I had copied these austin powers head puns for that; so I'm posting these anyways:
'Not the time to lose one's head.'
'That's not the way to get ahead in life.'
'It's a shame he wasn't more headstrong.'
'He'll never be the head of a major corporation.'
