#18 Crash Bandicoot

Horizon over Zelda. Wow didnt see that coming. Im sure Zelda will sell more though.
Sony would do well in bundling Crash in the Summer. Would sell a lot of PS4s and would also work well for Activision since the last COD bundle was left in the shadows by Uncharted 4.

Wouldn't be so sure about that.  Zelda isn't exactly a huge franchise for Nintendo.  On average, they sell ~3.5M copies, with the highest selling ~7.5M (which was a N64 game.)  I think BoTW will definitely beat the average, but by how much is unknown.  And it's possible that Horizon Dawn could sell like TLoU if its a really good game, which sold ~7M on the PS3.
