You should use accurate figures wherever available, which would make it a better chart in my opinion :)
Like games where official figures are way above VGC figures are obviously poorly tracked and for some games official figures are either not available else really dated. There VGC figures are probably the better estimation of sales.
Also, in addition to the games Kapi stated, NFS Most Wanted from 2005 sold 16 million units.
Well if I used for one I would have to use for all, and that would be an herculean effort. VGC already have threads for us to give sources for more accurate numbers and they will correcting the mistakes along the way.
I listed them in the edit...
"Every FIFA since 10 has done over 10m (so 8 in total), as did Battlefield 3/4/1, Battlefront, Need for Speed Underground 1/2 and The Sims 3"
Will also try and edit the table to show the totals of publishers better. Work for after lunch.
Ah, rumor. I have a friend obsessed with the game. I was about to tell him a sequel was incoming. Glad I waited.
I'll help fill in with other games. Are you keeping your list to a single SKU, single platform maker or across anything and everything?
Yep, people expected it to be revealed at this E3, others expect it to release on PS5 launch. It is a good game worth waiting for.
I'm trying to sum everything that "is the same".
Like for Street Fighter 2 I counted all editions on all platforms I found on VGC that had reasonable numbers, same for Resident Evil and remakes. But sequels I have counted each separate (like if RE2 or 4 crosses 10M with all their ports and remakes would add as well). Does that make sense on what you were asking?
VGC wouldn't correct their mistakes. Sony revealed God of War series sales as of May 2012 in June of that year and VGC numbers of the games released till then are still behind those figures, 6 years later, even as some of them continued to sell for years to come. All those sales were retail by the way, so no excuse of digital being a factor.
Like you said, Borderlands 2 is still tracked far behind its real sales, which were revealed in March 2015. Its 3 years and we still haven't caught up.
NFS Most Wanted sales were revealed at 16 million in 2009, and its still behind on VGC 9 years post figures.
VGC figures for Arkham Knight are just above 6 million, so selling 5 million in 3 months, did the game just sell 1 million in the next 3 years. Witcher 3 is heavily undertracked as well.
VGC only deals with retail sales, which aren't very accurate, and missing digital sales is missing a massive portion of PC sales which has grown tremendously and even console digital sales routinely hit 30 to 55% these days.
