Computer gaming has been instrumental to the entire gaming industry as a whole. Today 75% of all American households have at least one gamer. This cool timeline of the best-selling PC games
since 1993 was put together by the research team at HP computers. The first best seller on this list, Myst, is also one of the first games to ever come out on CD-ROM. It sold 6 million copies that year and was one of the best-selling games for many years until StarCraft came out in 1998 and sold 11 million copies. Some other big names in early PC gaming history on this list from my childhood are RollerCoaster Tycoon (1999 best seller 4 million copies sold), The Sims (2000 best seller 11 million copies sold) and 2004's World of Warcraft (14 million copies sold). The biggest selling computer game on this list by far is 2017's PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds which sold a whopping 42 million copies.
