Superb, I'm porned out and spent. What a great way to wash down E3 Day Zero.

Also I totally (re)made that achievement graphic. You would not believe how difficult it was (in 2010) to find a clean raster that had the trophy instead of the X jewel. Now there's a couple more swimming in Google Images, but that was the best (and the most square) one on the entire internet for a while.

The best part is seeing it ripped off and put on t-shirts, low res and all. ;p Easy to tell because the real deal isn't green. lol

This is really cool.

A great testament not only to the community (and the hard working mods who do awesome projects like this) but to the notion of the "silent majority."

This whole thing is awesome. The random facts are fun, but this one:

is hurtful because the achievements in that game seem somewhat glitchy. I recall coming to the site and syncing my account, and then seeing how few of the ME1 achievements I had unlocked. Even a second play-through of that game post-ME2 failed to unlock some of them (The "Play the game with this companion in your party for the majority of the time" for example).

Nothing you can account for, and it is what it is, but that may be what's up with that. I can't explain the ME2 one.

I'm going to guess COD is so low on the players per game list because of Call of Duty Classic.

There were still over 3000 people that played it.

why do you always post these awesome threads

Posted by PirateChris

Absolutely amazing. I'm one of those people who only plays through games once they've gone below £10.

19 of the top 50 most played games were new IP's. 4 of the top 50 were sequels to those new IP's.

I think there's 6 sequels: Left 4 Dead 2, Gears of War 2, Rock Band 2, Assassin's Creed II, Mass Effect 2, Gears of War 3.

Cool stuff. I'd be interested to see what the overall campaign completion numbers are. That would require fishing through and finding the "you beat the game" achievement on every game, but it'd be cool to see. I assume if ~20% of people aren't getting anywhere in Mass Effect, and only ~60% of people are beating Limbo (A 2 hour game), that most people aren't finishing campaigns in general. That probably ties in with the decrease in play numbers of games, mentioned earlier in comments. I think we're just getting older as a community and not finding the time to play games.

Wow, this a truly astounding amount of work.

Excellent post... thanks for all the hard work.

Posted by iam3green

awesome right up right there. some pretty interesting stuff.

Posted by brownsfantb

I can't believe that around 25% of people that played Mass Effect didn't even beat this first mission. What the hell did they do then? Are there people that just put a game in and never play it?

Thanks. I'll most likely be doing another at the of the year for stats on 2012. I most recently did one based on reviews on the site if you missed that.
