TA Monthly Gaming Stats - May 2011

By Dog of Thunder, 5 years ago
I want to start this by thanking everyone for the overwhelmingly positive comments from our first stats article.

This week's report is a little different as these numbers reflect the entire month of May.

This report is for the period May 1st '11 to May 31st '11.

Games Started

Stop me if you have heard this one before, but L.A.Noire is a pretty popular game. Brink, for all of the middling reviews (Metacritic score of 68, lowest of our top five), made a strong first month showing at number two.

Portal 2 remains on the chart as the only holdover from April. Released on April 19th, 9,275 gamers began Portal 2 during the month of May, at least two weeks after the initial release. I would not be surprised to see Portal 2 remain on this chart next month.

71,723 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 196,616 games between them (1,463 different games).

Top Retail Games Started

The top arcade game list had a last minute shake up as Dungeons and Dragons: Daggerdale made a splash in its first week of release to take the Number One spot. Outland, an under the radar arcade release, made an impact with just over a thousand gamers picking it up.

Now, if last week is any indication, I am sure people will be just as confused at the placement of Harm's Way for the month of May. Enough gamers started Harm's Way to ensure that SEGA Rally Online Arcade was not in the Top Five. Who could have predicted that?

Games Completed

The same five games on last week's list are also the Top Five Game Completions of May.

13,751 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 25,135 games between them (1,146 different games).

Top Retail Games Completed

Bolstered by Portal 2, the XBLA version of the original, Portal: Still Alive, was completed by 206 gamers during the month of May in the year 2011. I am starting to think we can create a separate post consisting entirely of Harm's Way fun facts, such as this one: over 500 gamers started Harm's Way during the month of May but did not finish it.

Achievements Won

Again, the top Achievements Won for the month of May are all from our Most Started Game, L.A.Noire. The number to take from this section is this: 3,744,313.

That is three million, seven hundred and forty-four thousand, three hundred and thirteen achievements unlocked by the TrueAchievement community for the month of May. Give yourselves a hand over that particularly awe-inspiring number. clap

94,968 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 3,744,313 achievements online between them (44,289 different achievements).
