UK trade body UKIE, as part of its 30 Years of Play campaign, handed out numerous awards to games that have sold over 1m copies in the UK.
This is according to boxed sales information provided by data specialist GfK. No digital data is tracked.
The list only contains games to have sold 1m copies on an individual platform. This means that games that have sold over 1m copies across multiple formats (like Fallout 4, for instance) do not make the cut. Whereas Grand Theft Auto V, which has sold 1m copies on four different formats, makes the list four times.
Unsurprisingly, Nintendo, Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto and FIFA titles make up the bulk of the list. Notable exceptions are the first two Just Dance games, Zumba Fitness, The Simpson: Hit and Run and Red Dead Redemption 2. Two big Microsoft exclusives - Minecraft and Halo 3 - also make the list.
