Our most popular video games

Since we began collecting video games this has been one of our most popular collections. I was curious to see which games were the most desired right now so I ran a list based on the highest number of checkouts for this year. Surprisingly, nine of top 10 games are for an older console: the Nintendo Wii. I wanted to see the top games for all of the consoles and here they are…the top five games in descending order of popularity listed by console:

Mario Party 8: This older game has been checked out an amazing 155 times (17 times this year).
New Super Mario Bros
Lego Star Wars III – The Clone Wars
Mario Sports Mix
Kirby’s Return to Dream Land

Wii U
New Super Mario Bros
Super Mario 3D World
