Without achievements, it can't rank.

Ark was pretty good, odd that HW2 didn't do better, Re7 is terrible.
Doom rocks

you actually mean

Or does this also count a game like path of exile where I have 0 achievements but a couple oy playing hours?
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 feel like that would be redundant as you can remove them anyway.

I only played Ark as a trial and haven't popped an achievement in that version of Minecraft yet. Though those are the only two of these I have played.

I already know what #1 and it's thanks to me
I can still hear the announcer in my head from the start of the game.
I'm thinking this may involve boats in some way?

Didn’t play a single one of these. I never seem to play what’s popular. Or free (being on a Silver membership).

Did you jump back into Mincraft for some new achievements?

But seriously, I've spent a good number of hours in Minecraft BT, but only in Creative Mode so no Achievements popped yet (2018 though)!

The last place game on this list has 28000 gamers roughly. South Park, Wolfenstein 2, Middle Earth, Forza 7, Madden 18 and What Remains of Edith Finch have under this number so none of those will be on it.

Great to see RE7 on there. It should easily be a GOTY contender. Lovely game.

Yikes, never played any of them and there are 2 games I haven't even heard of! I play everything that comes out that might interest me, which means I will have only played ME, AC and Slime Rancher in the top 10....and possibly Skyrim as it released at the end of 2016.

That said, I did spend hundreds of hours in each of Skyrim, Fallout 3, Fallout 4, Mass Effect universe, Stardew Valley, Pillars of Eternity, Borderlands 2 and Dragon's Dogma....it would be interesting to see this list by hours played.....interestingly, not even the Xbox year-in-review page shows game times actually played, it too appears to be linked to Achievements or possibly when you first played the game.....I have spent more time in Fallout 4 than any other game this year, yet it isn't even noted in my top 5.....unfortunate.

Well if you're curious on how its doing on Xbox in general and not just on TA, then just head over to the most played games on Xbox live. You will need to switch the regions around at the bottom left of the page to see how its doing in each region.

Thank you for the link, very interesting. Only four games from TA’s list is on the top 20 on Xbox right now. Fortnite is #1 in the US, didn’t know the game was that popular.

Fortnite: Battle Royale is popular! The base game is not popular at all.

For those saying it should be based on time played, Xbox's "time played" system counts in-game time whether you're sitting at the start menu or actually playing (I once went on vacation for a week, left a game running, and now it looks like I've played an obscene amount), so it's a poor system of gauging what game actually was the most played. The format may not be perfect, but it at least tells us something about the amount of people that played each game.
