Guitar Hero 3: Highest-Grossing Game of All Time
By Micky Koeppe posted 5 years ago

Even though Call of Duty: Black Ops is the top selling game of all-time, it has yet to surpass Guitar Hero 3 in revenue, thanks in part to guitar peripheral sold with copies of the game.

CNBC found the stat by digging through data from market research firm NPD Group. Here is a list of the top 10 grossing games since 1995:

  1. Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock $830.9 million
  2. Call of Duty: Black Ops $787.4 million
  3. Wii Fit (Including Balance Board) $736.6 million
  4. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 $713.6 million
  5. Rock Band $670.7 million
  6. Wii Play (Including Wii Remote)
  7. Guitar Hero World Tour
  8. Wii Fit Plus
  9. Mario Kart Wii (Including Wii Wheel)
  10. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

The title of the article seems to be very misleading, since Guitar Hero III has yet to top Super Mario Bros. or Pokemon Red/Blue or the Gameboy Tetris in pure numbers. I'm changing the title to better reflect the truth.
