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?
Destiny 2
Call of duty:WWII
Mass Effect Andromeda
Ghost recon
Cuphead
Assassins creed origins

These are the locks for the top 10. Slime Rancher and Trackmania turbo are probably pretty good bets too. As far as i know a 2016 game can make this list if enough ppl started it this year,its just a lot easier for ppl to check anything that came out in 2017 and see if it makes the list.

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
Maybe the sequel that came out this year is what you were thinking

I haven't played any game on the list nor any of the games you listed this year. And as for it counting, I think ANY game counts as long as you earned an achievement this year, thereby attaining the qualification of "playing" it in 2017. No where does it say it has to be a 2017 release. Gears of War 4 has to be in the top with these qualifications due to the title updates (namely September).

I'm aware it can include previous years games,as i believe last year a game or 2 made the list. However these lists as far as i know is based on new,unique tags playing a game for the first time. I had to look it up just to see but last year Gears 4 made this list at 75k people having played it. The game is now at 126k gamers. So based on this Gears 4 should make the 2017 list with about 50k new users. That still puts it far behind COD,Destiny,Ghost Recon and Mass Effect. Now if this is indeed counting ppl that already started the game last year and then scored 1 or more achievements in 2017,then yes it will probably be higher on the list,but i am pretty sure this is based on people who started the game this year.

I really wish I could understand why people like Destiny or cod. EA games are now welcome on my never buy list too now.

0 for 10 so far this year again. I'm usually about a year behind in game releases for the most part. Other than some GWG games (Tales of Borderlands, Slime Rancher, etc) I'm probably thinking I'll be 1 for 20 with the 1 being Forza 7.

I'm betting Destiny 2 & AC: Origins take one of the top spots easy!!

Wow very surprised For Honor is on this list. Must have been the two free play weekends. Also Resident Evil is worth the purchase this boxing week if you haven't played it already. Not the biggest fan of the series or survival-horror but this game is phenomenal.

0/10 for me ... I’m not a big AAA fan, though I do get to them sometimes, but like others, I have quite the backlog. More games than games played. I played COD but never popped an achievement and obviously haven’t played much. I wish more people played the small games like Snake Pass, Little Nightmares, and a lot of other Id@xbox games. There have been some real gems through that program, but oh well, at least I was able to play them!! As far as I’m concerned it’s the id@xbox program that gets me most excited each year with the exception of COD (loooove the campaigns, always have) and South Park: TFBW... which I still haven’t done much at all. I WISH WISH WISH they would bring “Storm” to the X1... fantastic and fresh platformer!! Damn I want to play it again!!
Trials “Anger Management” is killing me!! TONIGHT, I unlock it!

Only 1 I played was speedrunners. I'm sure mass effect will be in the top 10, it was the only AAA game I played, and I feel bad for how hyped I got for it, just to be massively let down. Did enjoy Tales from The Borderlands and Slime Rancher.

Wouldn't Ark be the first new IP, and not For Honor?

You're thinking of either the community playlist which had LiS, or the prequel Before the Storm that came out this year.

The title of this list is very misleading. It should actually be "Most Started Games on Trueachievements" or "Most Tried Games on Trueachievements." "Most Played" sounds like time spent in game, which would make for a very different list, I'd suspect.
