NPD Group's 'US top 20 best-selling chart' most appearances of the decade include Mario Kart 8, Minecraft, and Breath of the Wild

These games don't stop selling!

Grand Theft Auto 5, Minecraft, Mario Kart 8, Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Siege and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild have appeared more times on the NPD Group's US top 20 best-selling games chart then any other games this entire decade. Thanks to Mat Piscatella of NPD Group, we have the number of times each of these games have appeared on the top 20 list. More data will be released at a later date. Minecraft, Mario Kart 8, and Breath of the Wild are all available on the Nintendo Switch platform.

GTA V - appeared on 'US top 20' 74 times

Minecraft - appeared on 'US top 20' 73 times

Mario Kart 8 - appeared on 'US top 20' 37 times

TCR6:S - appeared on 'US top 20' 34 times

TLoZ:BoTW - appeared on 'US top 20' 30 times


Two Nintendo exclusives on the list -- not too bad.
Also, I wonder how this would look if Pokemon games were linked rather than listed as two (or sometimes three) separate entries for essential the same game.
