Best-Selling Games Ever

Yes folks, it's that time of year: we look back into the past, grab some gaming legends by the throat and throw them here, so everyone can see what's so special about them. So, get ready, 'cause we're about to be in the company of great marketing hits. And yeah, this also includes The Sims, so easy with the swearing, okay? According to GamingSteve, the crown, the scepter, the 1st place and all the other complementary honors go to none other than the two weird-colored brothers. Super Mario Brothers is the best-selling video game of all time, with over 40 million units sold. Furthermore, the 26 Mario games have sold an astounding 152 million copies. At least, that's what Guinness Book of World Records says. As far as PC games as concerned, I'm sure you already know the answer: The Sims is the indisputable champion. Finally, let's talk about the ancient coin-operated arcade games. The winner is the one and only Pac-Man. By the way, did you know that Pac-Man was first known as "Puck-Man"? You did? Well, then answer me this: why did the kids scratch off a part of the "P" written on the arcade-machines and why did the publisher decide to change the game's name?
