Pokemon makes less much less money(gaming wise) than Fifa and CoD due to DLCs and MTs. That a fact.
Fifa 18 sold 24 million copies. https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2018-09-05-fifa-18-sells-over-24-million-copies

RDR is at 24 million and will probably sell close to 50 since it's a Rockstar game. RDR is still new franchise. It will further grow.

GTA5 is the biggest single IP money maker ever in history of video games. It's currently at 110 millions.

Those are all multi-platform series, so it’s not really an apples to apples comparison.

Sales alone don't mean a thing. Nintendo games for example almost never go on sales and if they do they are small sales you will never see Nintendo games on sales for like 9,99$ like almost all third party games get at some point. That being said the profits from Pokemon are split between three companies that own Pokemon brand.


GTA, COD, FIFA, Pokemon and Mario. They are gaming biggest franchises (not counting 1 time wonders like Minecraft or Fortnite)

Sony doing great this generation well deserved, best publisher of the generation with no forcing multiplayer, microtransactions etc.

And good games with enough diversity to attract gamers and game developers 🤗

Yup, diversity is important.

Yes they are but sales at 59,99$ and 9,99$ are not the same that was my point and vast majority of sales from most game series comes from sales.

on a positive note, this could continue to make devs realize that single player games and cinematic games can sell very, very well.

Why exclude Minecraft and Fortnite? By saying this you basically agree with me that Wii was 1 time wonder.
We still do not know if those games are indeed 1 time wonders. I want to see the revenues that Fortnite and PUBG make.

Sony exclusives are like the marvel comic movies. They are almost always high quality and deliver the goods.

For no reason, you can put them on the list if you want. They are generation defining games. I know the 5 franchises i mentioned will stay on top for a very long time though. I can't say the same about Minecraft, and especially the BR games (PUBG is already in decline for example).
