Heck, even Gran Turismo has outsold GTA on the PS2.

Not to mention the golden days of adventure games - Myst, Journeyman Project, LucasArts series, etc. All *mostly* nonviolent.
I see your Sims and raise you Mario and Pokemon. Mario and Pokemon are actually the two top selling franchise, Sims is third. Pokemon has fighting, but it is a competition, more like a sport, then actually fighting.
