What’s the biggest hit in entertainment history? Michael Jackson’s Thriller album is up there. It has brought in $500+ million since 1982.
The first Harry Potter novel is also in the running. The best-selling book in history raked in over $1 billion. The highest-grossing movie ever tops them both. Avengers: Endgame made $2.8 billion at the box office in 2019.
But a video game that involves robbing banks and running from cops blew them all away. Grand Theft Auto V has brought in over $6 billion since 2013. Let that sink in: A video game made more money than any movie, album, TV show, or book in history.
