Grand Theft Auto V is the best-selling game of the decade in the United States, at least according to data released by Mat Piscatella of NPD and based on sales in dollars of the retail market, therefore not taking into account digital downloads.
From 2010 to 2019 GTA V dominates the market, followed (in order) by Call of Duty Black Ops, Black Ops 2, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, Black Ops 3 and Call of Duty Ghosts. The last positions in the top 10 see Red Dead Redemption 2 in seventh place, Call of Duty WWII and COD Black Ops IIII in eighth and ninth positions and Minecraft in the last place in the ranking.
We continue (always in order) with the positions from 11 to 20: Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, Call of Duty Modern Warfare (2019), The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim, Mario Kart 8, Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, Battlefield 1, Battlefield 4, Destiny, The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild and Star Wars Battlefront (2015).
The podium of the previous decade (2000/209) was also interesting, with Guitar Hero III Legends of Rock in the first position followed by Wii Fit and Rock Band, genres that have now almost completely disappeared from the market. Call of Duty is confirmed as the number one brand in the United States has managed to place ten games in the top 20 USA from 2010 to 2019.
