I was over at Gamasutra earlier, and they had up the five top-selling games for various systems, PC and console. Naturally, I looked at the PC listing, and found it a bit surprising.

These were the top five games, as of yesterday:

  1. Medieval II: Total War (Sega)
  2. The Sims 2: Pets (EA Games)
  3. Microsoft Flight Simulator X (Microsoft)
  4. Nancy Drew: The Creature of Kapu Cave (Atari)
  5. Neverwinter Nights 2 (Atari)

There are two sims, one strategy, one adventure, and one RPG up there. I was struck by the fact that there isn’t a shooter, sports, or driving game on the list. Also noticeable is the omission of Dark Messiah Of Might & Magic.

NWN 2’s presence isn’t a surprise, although I would expect it to rank a little higher. Nonetheless, it seems to be doing all right in the sales department, bugs notwithstanding.

And then there’s Nancy Drew. Imagine that being in a top five list. You know, I’ve never played any of those. Maybe I should give this one a look.
