That depends -- are you talking arcade, console, or PC? According to Time Magazine, The Sims is the bestselling PC game of all time. It passed perennial powerhouse MYST in 2002.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Super Mario Brothers is the bestselling video game of all time, with over 40 million units sold. The 26 Mario games have sold an astounding 152 million copies since Donkey Kong came out in 1983. However, Super Mario Brothers came bundled with the Nintendo's NES gaming system, so it had a Microsoft-like advantage in that respect.

But Mario is still sitting pretty, as Super Mario Brothers 3 has sold 18 million unbundled copies since its release. And the bestselling video game console? That would be Sony PlayStation. The bestselling coin-operated arcade game appears to be the one and only Pac-Man.

For the latest video game sales statistics, we suggest you head on over to NDP Funworld, an industry-tracking service. Right now it's all about football.
