Gold, Platinum and Diamond Games (ihobo)

Over on ihobo today, another sales-oriented piece exploring blockbuster videogame sales from the perspective of an imaginary certification system. Here's an extract:

What if there were a system for certifying game sales like the ones used in the record industry – Gold, Platinum and Diamond games?

Let's suppose there is such a system, and unlike record sales it is based on global aggregate sales, not just regional sales. Let's define the boundaries of these sales as follows:

  • Gold Games sell 5,000,000 units globally

  • Platinum Games sell 10,000,000 units globally

  • Diamond Games sell 20,000,000 units globally

Which titles have enjoyed these degrees of success, and can we begin to venture why?
