There's less than five games that can claim to be more successful than Minecraft. And wow is one of them.
A bit confused on what beats WoW success, I can think of franchises, but not a single game. League comes close, but I do not know if it can beat 10 million people paying monthly fees.
I said that there was less than five who were more successful than Minecraft, not more successful thab wow.
I can only think of one game that's possibly more successful than Wow and that's the first Super Mario Brothers, because it rocketed the NES platform which in turn made lots of profits.
