Nope. Only 17,971 people on this site have that game.

Well, there's also a Windows 8 and a Windows Phone version. Poor Oddworld however has only completed the main version. Doesn't seem very dedicated to the cause, frankly.
I work on achievements. Life sanity tip: don't work on achievements.

How would time of release affect this list? Obviously some games have been out longer than others, which would skew the results, right?

Unravel was outstanding. A very simple premise but immaculately observed, beautifully rendered and highly enjoyable.

I can see why Skyrim has got so much love also, not just because it is a classic but I'm sure many TAers would happily play such a brilliant game over again to obtain the gamerscore. I personally never played the original either so it's the perfect excuse to jump in now it has been remastered whilst bulking my ratio :)

I didn't know about NBA, so I'll be trying it.

The only game I own is Unravel, which I got in the Black Friday sale.

As for Recore, I want to buy it. The trial was lots of fun.smile

Lol, haven't played any of them and never plan to . . Well maybe Skyrim, maybe.
Skyrim FTW!!!
A simple bad habit will mar an otherwise flawless character, as a single ink drop soils the pure white page.

Roblox is awful if you're not part of the target demographic. Which I'm sure applies to most of us. My daughter is 8 years old and she and her friends all spend hours on it. It's all subjective.
We don't stop playing because we get old; we grow old because we stop playing.

Is this a stat we can have provided for all games on a regular basis (on the games page)? As suggested in the wish list item requested at link below, an idea of how popular all games are at any given time would be an interesting stat, I think. It would also be good to clarify the vertical axis on this graph, to ensure we understand the most useful statistic - "Number of unique gamers that played a game" vs "Most time spent playing a particular game" could both be interpreted as "most played games."

How many are Still Playing?

I can't figure out the last 7. I know BF1, Gears4 and Forza3 will be there. I'm just trying to think what else big this year came out to be in the top ten.
Overwatch
Battlefield 1
Gears 4
Forza
Quantum break
Doom
The division
Titanfall 2
Rickey league

Those 9 should be on it for sure and then maybe A games with gold I can't think of atm

I wouldn't be surprised if maybe rainbow six siege makes the list either being a late 2015 release and being so popular
What avout minecraft that's always up there. Modern warfare remastered will probably be top 10

The fact that Skyrim Special Edition just came out, it made the list is inpressive.

Roblox and prelude wouldn't even be in the top 1000 if not for the fact they were free, but stats are stats.
