Yup. Also Baldur's Gate (1998) sold 2 million, Baldur's Gate 2 (2000) sold 2 million, Warcraft 2 (1995) sold 2 million, Riven (1997) sold 4.5 million, etc.

The big PC hits back in the day sold millions. Fallout 1&2 were more like cult hits. They gained fame among RPG players, but never really made it big in the mainstream. They sold around 15-20% of what Baldur's Gate games sold.
