You do realize I wasn't disagreeing with you, right? Well alright, your numbers are wrong; as of Feb 2010:

The Sims 3 on the PC, which sold 3.7 million units in its first month and topped 4.5 million copies sold as of last month. Also in January, EA declared it the top-selling PC game of 2009 at global retailers.

But yeah my 110 million units for the franchise was also a bit low it seems. Just saying that there is a huge game/game-type driving PC game sales besides MMOs. While it only recently has added significant online components to actual gameplay, the store and social aspects have heavily linked the game to an online space of sorts for years. Rather than some counterpoint to what you were saying, I considered this a supporting example which also tends to be overlooked.
