TA Gaming Stats - August 17th to 23rd 2015

By Chewie, 1 year ago
This report is for the period August 17th to 23rd 2015.

Welcome to the second of this week's two stats articles, with this one covering the third week of August.

The Big Numbers
70,192 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 108,784 games between them (2,153 different games).

8,881 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 14,304 games between them (1,606 different games).

135,014 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 2,025,301 achievements online between them (68,814 different achievements).

Xbox One
Rare Replay begins to slide down the table on Xbox One as new releases Madden NFL 16 (for EA Access members this week) and ZOMBI take second and third behind Games with Gold freebie How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition. Other new release Bridge Constructor also appears in ninth, although Velocity 2X, Giana Sisters: Dream Runners, Adventures of Pip, Pure Hold’em and Clash don't make the started table; an easy completion does put Clash in ninth on Completed though.

The "1989 Movie Batmobile Pack" DLC for Batman: Arkham Knight puts the game straight into first on Completed with 500 completions. Destiny also shoots up Completed into second thanks to an achievement-fixing patch.

How to Survive mostly dominates Achievements Won but the latest episode for Tales from the Borderlands grabs two spots at the bottom.

Xbox 360
New Games with Gold freebie Metro: Last Light grabs the lead with 2,200 starters, above its predecessor (both in the series and freeness) Metro 2033. It almost grabs the clean sweep on Achievements Won too, but a single 2033 achievement disrupts it in eighth. Speaking of 2033, the recent boost in that game's players also puts it into Completed in fifth. I'd have completed it myself if not for the danged Explorer achievement and missing a single bullet for Sherlock.

Although Rare Replay itself has taken a back seat on the One, it still has a strong effect on the 360 with three titles sitting pretty in the middle of Started. The patch has the same effect on the 360 as it does on the One, putting Destiny (Xbox 360) as the second most completed title with 60 completions.

XBLA sees little change with the three Rare Replay titles mostly continuing to dominate. One notable change is that the new Tales from the Borderlands (Xbox 360) episode lands the game straight into the top of completions, though it doesn't make any spots on Achievements Won. You may wonder why it appeared on XBLA and not on One. Well, that's because the game released on the One with all the episode achievements so it won't be "complete" according to these stats until the end game, whereas each episode's achievements are scanning in separately when the episode is released on XBLA (sometimes even a bit after) so each episode completion counts as a game completion over there.

A popular Red Stripe sale puts recent release Lines The Game (WP) into the top of Started with 350 starters, above recent dominator Twins (WP). The two games share out spots on Achievements Won with Lines claiming seven spots. With both games grindy and/or glitchy, neither makes Completed.

Action bows out of the top spot this week into third after its recent Rare Replay boost. Action-Adventure returns to the top in style, jumping from 13 to 16.7 million thanks to How to Survive. Card & Board slips further from fifth to eighth whilst both Sports and Adventure get boosts into fifth and sixth thanks to Madden and Tales from the Borderlands.
