    warcraft

    no other games will top popularity and or game play.. atleast in their respective categories.

    and no gaming company will ever surpass blizzard's success... any game that generates over a billion in revenue a year (WoW) is unfathomable in the gaming industry. even if your a blizz hater, you cant argue their business model, its pure genius.

    Ughhh...please tell me you're kidding? Or did you not see the same Mario Bros movie I did? Because the one I saw was a monumental steaming pile of crap that ranks right up there the in list of worst movies ever right along side of every single one of Uwe Boles sorry ass attempts at movie making. :puke2: cant believe no ones mentioned this one yet but easily in the top 10 if not close to the #1 one spot. The Doom Franchise. Maybe im just showing my age...but I remember when this series kicked off it topped charts for quite awhile.

    NFS series. You can all insult NFS all you want, but if it wasn't for high sales, NFS wouldn't still be in production then. :D

    StarCraft which came before WarCraft and thus spawned Warcraft wins. Plus StarCraft 2 is coming.

    actually, i read somewhere before in a gaming mag that Mario was the not only the most recognized game character for x amount of countries but the #1 video game as far as pure $$ yearly income for any game throughout history in the whole world.
