After seeing both charts we can see that the best selling games in 2010s were both Grand Theft Auto V and Call of Duty games. Black Ops 1 being the best one among all Call of Duty games, followed by Call of Duty Black Ops 2 then shifting to Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, then back again to Call of Duty Black Ops 3 and finally shifting to another call of Duty which is Ghosts. Rock star’s Red Dead Redemption gives us a little break from Call of Duty games but comes next Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty Black Ops 4. Seriously lots and lots of names of call of Duty Games and entries.

But seeing the 2000s List, we can notice that it’s different than the latest one. The Rhythm games make the debut here. It’s all about Guitar hero games and Rock Band games.

I am curious now about the 2020s list. Will it be a fortnite / battle royal -esque games? I think it will be πŸ™
