Besides GTA and Mario, are there any other game series that are consistently beating rivals in their own genre since the very beginning?

It seems like there are not alot of them, especially in terms of sales

Just looking at Wikipedia's List of best-selling video games and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe comes out as the best-selling racing game of all time, and i also see Mario Kart Wii somewhere in the middle, but i don't see any Crash Team Racing nor Sonic equivalent titles on the list, i dont even see a single Sonic game on the list, weird

Also GTA V is the second-best-selling game of all time while the other 2 best-selling GTAs are San Andreas and IV

It looks like GTA nd Mario have such a brand recognition that they'll never be outsold

 

If you know any other original franchises always beating competition i wanna know

Red Dead Redemption, after all it's pretty much the only wild west franchise still standing nowadays.

Actually another one came to mind: Pokémon

Its only true rival was Digimon but it died off too soon

Yugioh as well.

 

would COD and Battlefield fit this category? They are rivals still but back then there were many other army games they outlived like soccom, medal of honor and some others i cant remember for the life of me.

The WWE series.

 

In a funny parallel just like the real Monday Night War I don’t feel like the competition has been that good since the WWE games hit their stride around the PS2 era.

 

That AEW game released last year was ok, but besides that wrestling games besides WWE have been pretty lacking the last couple of decades IMO.
