The NPD Group has compiled fifteen years worth of video game sales in the United States, determining that Nintendo's 2006 release Wii Play is the industry's top seller, beating out Grand Theft Autos and Call of Dutys easily.

And it did it on one platform, with its nearest competitor, Guitar Hero III relying on four platforms to threaten Wii Play for sales dominance. Wii Play is one of three first party Nintendo games for the Wii that made the NPD Group's list, according to a report from GameSpot, joined by Wii Fit and Mario Kart Wii.


Three Call of Duty games made the list, with Modern Warfare 2 dominating its siblings.

The oldest title to make the list was Namco Museum, first released in 1995, the start of NPD's reporting. It did so by brute force, with releases on Dreamcast, Game Boy Advance, PlayStation 2, GameCube, Xbox, PSP, Nintendo 64, PlayStation 3, Wii, Nintendo DS, PlayStation, and Xbox 360 helping the compilation secure a top ten spot.

The full list can be enjoyed below.
