I think it’s safe to assume that it’ll be Deadpool. Right?

...It’s gonna be Call of Duty.

Always look forward to this article every year. And what a year 2017 was for gamers. You know it's been an amazing year when games like forza 7,wolfenstein and shadow of war dont even crack the top 10.

Just off the top of my head the top 10 should look something like
Destiny 2
Call of duty:WWII
Mass Effect Andromeda
Ghost recon
Cuphead
Assassins creed origins

Then probably a couple free gwg like trackmania turbo and others. Don't follow the gwg enough to know what was most popular this year

Haven't played a single one of those save Minecraft, but on a different platform. Looking forward to seeing the top 10...

Can't help but think that CoD, the timeless classic will win top spot. Call of 360QUIKscopes-420-Blaze-it-Duty. I'm sorry, can't help myself.

I haven't played any of these games yet, but I definitely want to set aside time to play RE:7 and Halo Wars 2 at some point.

Call of Duty or Gears of War 4 could be #2

I already know what #1 and it's thanks to me

I doubt it would be gears since most of its numbers would have come from 2016. Unless there was some massive free game this year that I can't think of it should be destiny and call of duty at the top. I'd guess destiny is tops but could go either way

I’m thinking Boarderlands from Telltale will be really high. Only reason it wouldn’t would be so many have already played it.

No way Gears 4 cracked top 10.

And I think that slime rancher game will be really high. Every contest that game was at or near the top of lists like most achievements from.

The Last Jedi wasn’t the worst Star Wars movie but it was the bigger disappointment. YouTube Hitler’s reaction to Star Wars if you want a visual on how I feel. (Spoilers)

you actually mean
Games people have unlocked at least 1 achievement in
?

Or does this also count a game like path of exile where I have 0 achievements but a couple oy playing hours?

I know but of those 126k that have started it i would guess 80-100k was from 2016. So it may still make this list but I'd be shocked if it was top 2-3

On TA we don't track a game you have until you've popped an achievement in it, so the former is how we derive these numbers.

It's a shame there wasn't some way to track without achievements. Only reason I'd want that is to see what kind of numbers pubg would get on Xbox and if it would take the top spot or where it would land

I can still hear the announcer in my head from the start of the game.

Gears of war 4 is irrelevant right?
I thought these lists were based on games released this year.
Cuphead will no doubt be in the top 10 but I’m really struggling to think of many more titles other than Destiny 2 or CoD.
Probably a madden game thrown in for good measure.
I’m guessing Slime Rancher will be the other GwG title to appear.

I saw Prey only had around 20k players which I thought would be a bit higher.
What good games actually came out this year on Xbox?

Same

One game I think will be in the top 10 that no one has said yet is Life is Strange. That came out this year, right?

Edit: Wow, not this year, not even last year, but the beginning of 2015. Wtf was I thinking
