The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Sells 20 Million Copies
You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone ’round these parts that doesn’t enjoy The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Even those indifferent to the RPG genre will give the game an arrow to the knee, at least.
So now we’re over two years removed from Skyrim’s release, only to be informed that the Dragonborn has risen 20 million times. That’s correct: ZeniMax and Bethesda have sold over 20 million copies of Skyrim, good enough for the 20 spot on the best-selling games of all time list. In fact, Skyrim is the only American-made game in the top 20, and it’s one of the few RPGs on the list, joining the likes of Pokemon Rred/Blue/Green and Pokemon Gold/Silver (although you could make the case for GTA being an RPG, but that’s a debate for another post).
