Mario Maker's been a relative disappointment. This time last year, I figured it was an easy 10 million seller.

The correct answer is of course mario party with super mario party sitting on 9.12m. It may even get there in this quarter. Luigi's mansion will probably join it in a years time.

I don't mind the odd bit of fortnite but saying that I've never spent a single penny on it. Call of duty otoh is imo totally overrated. The same game regurgitated annually to huge sales  >:(

And I still don't get why so many people are buying that generic garbage.

Metroid Prime has actual soul and depth, while COD is just the same boring and brown slop again and again.

Peer pressure, to play the same generic shit their mates are playing year after year I guess. Also, I totally agree with you.

I’m not really looking to have a debate about the merits of CoD, believe me, and I haven’t played it after 2 either, but I do want to say that it’s not just about that.

It’s about having ‘mindless’ fun. Call of Duty offers this, a complicated game like Metroid doesn’t. That’s a different kind of fun. With CoD you can just shoot at stuff for half an hour and see a bunch of explosions, and think nothing of it. And that’s in the end what most people want.

I wonder how many "backhanders" take place? :0

Probably a lot more than you think.

It's thanks to frauds like IGN that superior franchises like Metroid Prime or Pikmin haven't ever joined the 10m Club.

I thought IGN gave good review scores to Metroid Prime and Pikmin though? Unless i'm missing the bigger picture.

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

I thought so too at 1 time but then it's legs have been somewhat disappointing, when relatively compared to the other Nintendo "evergreens".

I categorised Mario party similarly to Splatoon in the OP. I figured they would both get there easily, so omitted them both.

Perhaps I shouldn't comment too much about COD, as indeed I haven't played it for a while and you are right. I don't want to drag this too far off topic.

Okay, didn't realise. Anyway aside from Luigi's mansion i don't see any of nintendo'ss current IP  getting to 10 million. The most likely candidate would be Donkey kong, DKC on Snes was a 9 million seller and Returns did 6.5m on Wii so there is potential but it would have to be a 10/10 in quality with great multiplayer and release in the next year or two before switch momentum declines. Other than that well If there was a Diddy Kong racing sequel with the production values of Mario kart and with Banjo as a guest racer like the original then it would have the mass market appeal to achieve 10 million.
