BEST VIDEO GAME FRANCHISES OVER THE YEARS
Exhibit|February 2021
Ever since gaming has reached the digital age, there have spawned numerous titles and franchises across the globe. While some were just one-trick ponies or got lost in the sands of time, there were others who cemented their names in history as some of the best video games. These also led to the rise of multiple franchises, who have since gone on to become multibillion-dollar industries in themselves. Following is a list of such video game franchises who have only grown bigger as the years have passed:

POKEMON

You might take Pokemon, the globally popular Anime, lightly as it is supposed to be for children. Well, you wouldn’t be the only one in that case. However, it is, in fact, the highest-grossing video game franchise in the world! Grossing over $90 Billion in global sales, the Pokemon world commands towering respect over the other video game franchises. In fact, the first entries in its list, Pokemon Red/Green/Blue/Yellow still rank seventh among the top-selling video games of all time!

DIABLO

Arguably one of the bestselling PC franchises of all time, Diablo is best remembered as a hackand-slash action RPG, packed with fast-paced gameplay and quirky one-liners. While its upcoming edition is a mobileexclusive, much to the chagrin of its ardent fans, the Diablo series is undoubtedly one of the most significant reasons for Blizzard studios getting the fame that it enjoys today.

UNCHARTED

Sony’s Playstation-exclusive adventure franchise fulfils every player’s hidden dream of living the life of Indiana Jones or Tomb Raider. Playing through huge actions sequences as we globetrot the world for treasure as the infamous Nathan Drake, the Uncharted series has only seen growing success and popularity with each of its followup title.

FIFA

Football is undoubtedly the most widely recognized and beloved sport in the world, with more than 200 countries participating in international competitions. Consequently, it is natural that the love for football will also result in the love for its videogame counterpart, i.e. FIFA. Since its launch in 1993, the gameplay mechanics, graphics, and realism has only scaled higher and higher, leading FIFA to become one of the top-grossing videogame franchises in the world.
