  1. Not too surprising, just looking at that list, I have to say that everything below MW2 sold less than 2 million copies or so. I wish more people would embrace the PC, cause it is an awesome platform for the games that you can’t play on the consoles, and it makes FPS games more enjoyable with all the mods you can add.
