Nintendo franchise sales figures

A link to the top five as of March 2007. So these are about two years old, but they're probably still pretty accurate in terms of what games are selling the best.

That's interesting. I really can agree on Mario coming in on 1st. After all, he "started" Nintendo. XD
But, I must admit that I am a little surprised on Pokemon closing in on 2nd so...close to 1st! I thought Zelda would be next, but, is Pokemon a really interesting franchise? Like the stats show?
As, I've never really tried much of it myself, lol. x3

Pokemon is not interesting AT ALL! How the hell is it in the top 5, PAST ZELDA!!!

But I guess Pokemon is interesting to a younger audience, I remember me loving Pokemon when I was little, and I'm sure Nintendo has a lot of fans of a younger audience. xD

Just go play your little Pokemon games you 6 year old! Nah, j/k.

But, yeah, Pokemon is not interesting, after you get to play almost all the games. Almost every Pokemon game is the same, nothing new except for new Pokemon, graphics, people, story and other little things. Which all games via a update but Pokemon REALLY stays the same. Not even the annoying battle format has changed, which is really what makes Pokemon(for me) repetitive.

Hope I'm not getting off-topic. :/

This all seems to be in order.
I didn't expect the Donkey Kong franchise to be very successful.
Zelda is quite unpopular in Australia, and EVERYONE knows what Pokemon is, whether they like it or not.

Fanboys. Even if a Pokemon game was 5 minutes long in play time, they'd still buy it.

For the brilliant multiplayer!

Don't fret, the Mario series gained ground ahead of pokemon this generation. Pokemon won't have a big N tattooed on his arse...yet
