Interesting to see that NBA did better than FIFA, despite being a download required title.

Doesn't NBA always do better than FIFA in the US?

While I agree that 3rd party releases won't just instantly dry up because of the new consoles, how does this list prove it? We have no actual number of units sold nor any comparison to how well they did when put against PS4/XBO sales. It definitely doesn't have Nintendo ”leading the pack of third party game sales."

I am surprised to see either game in the top ten, and now I wonder why we don’t get Madden or NHL.

Because "EA Sports, it's in the game, but ain't on the Switch"

Nintendo and former Sony mascots leading the top 2. Making it a bit hard to control for future third party games, as both Mario collaborations and Crash are a bit unlikely.

Just Dance is no surprise as it has always been quite popular on Nintendo consoles.

That basically leaves Diablo 3 as the biggest winner, I hope Blizzard is cooking up a sequel at some point to release for all consoles simultaneously.

"While Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was developed and published by Ubisoft, it should go without saying that the Mario IP is pulling the weight."

Certainly Mario being in the game helps sales, but I think Rabbids is more than that. I was rather surprised at how good the game is. Excellent game, very fun. I would buy a sequel.

NHL is not even on PC for some time now - which is bummer, I occasionally still play team sports games, and always go with basketball and hockey.



.... oh yeah, it's US only. I was wondering why I couldn't see Octopath Traveler in this chart, wait scratch it.

Why isn't Octopath Traveler in this chart ?! It sold more than 1.5M copies a long time ago worldwide and I'm pretty sure the US had the biggest piece of the pie there.

Published by Nintendo in the US.

It's very possible Japan contributed well to it's sales to a point it didn't pop up for this list. 



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?
