The 11 top-grossing video games of all time!

Video games have sure come a long way since the days of Pac-Man, Pong, Space Invaders or Asteroids. They are now big, BIG business. In fact, they’ve become one of the fastest growing entertainment industries in the world, surpassing movies and music annual revenue. This year, the industry is expected to bring in more than $100 billion in revenue. According to Matt Weinberger, from the Business Insider, the top 11 highest-grossing video games of all time may surprise you (adjusted for inflation.)

11. Westward Journey series (PC, 2001) — $3.9 billion

WARNING!  Even if this type of game isn’t normally your thing, there is an extremely strong chance that you will absolutely NEED to play this game if you watch this beautiful trailer!  There is most definitely a reason why it’s on this list!


 

10. Dungeon Fighter Online (PC, 2005) — $4 billion

Still going strong…


 

9. Donkey Kong (Arcade/NES/Coleco, 1981) — $4.4 billion

Kid: Mortal Kombat, on Sega Genesis, is the best video game ever.
Billy Madison: I disagree, it’s a very good game, but I think Donkey Kong is the best game ever.
Kid: Donkey Kong sucks.
Billy Madison: You know something? YOU SUCK!

Score 1 for Billy Madison, because you won’t find Mortal Kombat anywhere in this Top 11!
