  1. Caveats:
  2.  
  3. This data wasn't really meant to be interpreted in terms of individual gaming consoles, and the sample size per console probably isn't really enough to provide more than interesting comparative snapshots. Sort of an 'ooh, that's possibly worth looking into further' topic starter. The main purpose was to make a categorical and comprehensive assessment of 280 games from across gaming history.
  4.  
  5. All titles are listed by platform they were first spotted on, on a 'best selling' or 'critically acclaimed' list.
  6.  
  7. Please keep in mind that this data is useful for the points I will be making about gaming in general, if not consoles being compared directly. You may find data points in here you disagree with. I encourage you to PM me about mistakes, and I will correct them. Please don't turn the comments section into nothing but railing against individual data points, the overall numbers here aren't going to change considerably. With that being said, here you go:
