Top 10 Best-Selling Video Games of All Time

There’s no doubt whatsoever that the video games industry is absolutely colossal. With estimated overall gross income predicted to exceed $109 billion in 2017 alone, it stands as one of the most lucrative industries in the world – and certainly the fastest growing. All of this put us in mind of our favourite games and how they might have contributed to that figure, which of course led us to asking: what are the best-selling video games of all time?

After a little research and data analysis, we’ve come up with a comprehensive list. A lot of the entries on the list are pretty self-evident, but we have to admit, we saw some pretty interesting patterns emerging. Let’s take a look! Continue reading

Desert Island Games: Adam

Desert Island Games

Seems like forever since we last cast any unwitting MoGi staffers out to sea in the name of our Desert Island Games series. From what we’ve heard, the island is demanding more visitors. Islands get lonely too, you know. This week it’s the turn of our Copywriter and SEO Project Coordinator, Adam Leahy.

Before he sets sail with five games of his choosing, and all the consoles he’ll need to play them, let’s catch up with Adam to find out just what’s on his list… Continue reading

Retro Games Corner: Super Mario Kart at 25

Original release date: 1st September 1992

Some games become so ingrained in the fabric of gaming culture that it’s hard to believe there was ever a time when we were without them. Games so universally played and loved that, paradoxically, you feel simultaneously that they’ve always been there and like it was only yesterday that you first played them. Super Mario Kart is a textbook example of just that kind of game. Originally released on the SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) on September 1st 1992, the first in a long line of Mario Kart titles, this simple, beautiful, addictive game turns 25 this month. With that in mind, we can’t think of a better time to pay homage to such a classic retro game. Continue reading

Meet MoGi at gamescom 2017

To say we’re excited to be attending this year’s gamescom would be an understatement. A huge understatement. The long wait is almost over and next week we’ll be flocking to Cologne to one of the world’s biggest and most influential gaming expos. Not only will we be taking in all the biggest announcements and updates the gaming world has to offer with wide-eyed anticipation, we’ll also be on-site to answer all your burning localization, player support, and community management questions!

For many (us included!), gamescom is one of the most important dates in the entire gaming industry calendar. A chance to meet friends new and old, and keep up with the most exciting developments in the industry within the last year. Now in its 9th year, gamescom has gone from strength to strength, solidifying Germany’s place on the international gaming map, and bringing fans and developers alike from all over the world together in one place.

Indie Initiative – Unlucky 13

Since the launch of our Indie Initiative, we’ve worked with some of the most innovative and creative indie games developers in the field today. As part of this, we get to see a lot of great games pass through our doors, games made by developers right on the verge of making huge waves in the gaming community. Recently, one such game, by one such developer, caught our attention, and we’re just dying to talk about it.

Unlucky 13 is the new puzzle game from indie veterans, Total Eclipse. Unlucky 13 follows in the footsteps of influential and globally beloved puzzle games like Tetris (or Columns, for the Sega fans out there) and Bubble Shooter. Instantly addictive, the game challenges players to put their spatial awareness and problem-solving skills to the test with enough of an original slant on a tried-and-tested formula to make it feel both fresh and new and yet immediately recognizable and comfortably familiar at the same time.

After mulling over each and every one of them around the hard-working office coffee machine, we’ve compiled a list of ten announcements that really blew us away at this year’s expo. In no particular order, let’s take a look…
