TA Gaming Stats - January 13th to 19th 2014

By Chewie, 4 years ago
This report is for the period January 13th to January 19th 2014.

We've got another short one for you this week, TA'ers. Why? Stats for the whole of 2013, that's why. Oh, you're still here? Well, it's also a really quiet week again.... Oh man, you really want to see it? Ok, let's do this thing.

Games Started
26,242 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 38,695 games between them (1,896 different games).

Wow, still no new One games? With steadily declining numbers and nothing new to excite us, we slide under the 500 starters mark, with Ryse: Son of Rome retaining the top spot. The only difference in the order from last week is that LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (Xbox One) and Xbox Fitness swap places in eighth and ninth.

Top Xbox One Games Started

Despite not being free for two weeks at this point, over 1,300 players hadn't yet started their "Games with Gold" version of Sleeping Dogs until this week, almost exactly half of last week's number.

Top Xbox 360 Retail Games Started

The new "Games with Gold" freeness of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light makes the game by far the most started title across all platforms, with almost 4,500 players picking it up. The only new release of the week comes in the form of Playstation Vita port Assassin's Creed Liberation HD, which takes under 800 starters in second. Not exactly big numbers for an Assassin's Creed title.

Top Arcade Games Started

The three Microsoft freebies, Microsoft Mahjong (WP), Microsoft Minesweeper (WP) and Microsoft Solitaire Collection (WP) continue their dominance, athough a single new release or decent sale could topple them soon. Mush (WP) is this week's sale title in seventh with only around 70 starters, so maybe I could be wrong about that.

Top Windows Phone Games Started

Games Completed
6,694 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 9,188 games between them (1,274 different games).

After slipping from first to third last week, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (Xbox One) resumes its place at the top, pushing back over 100 completions, above Max: The Curse of Brotherhood (Xbox One) and Ryse: Son of Rome.

Top Xbox One Games Completed

Sleeping Dogs manages to increase its completions (by a grand total of 6), with the rest of the table wallowing under the 100 completions mark.

Top Xbox 360 Retail Games Completed

The top half of this table strongly resembles last week's, only with smaller numbers. Interestingly enough, the two recent (so far) single-episode Telltale adventures The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead: Season Two both get 315 completions. With no multiplayer and nowhere near as much to do as the retail titles in the series, Assassin's Creed Liberation proves an easy completion in seventh with 100 completions. Currently almost 25% of players have finished it.

Top Arcade Games Completed

Temple Run 2 (WP) and two of the Microsoft titles continue to rule over a bunch of recent easy sales titles and freebies.

Top Windows Phone Games Completed

Achievements Won
65,685 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 727,007 achievements online between them (50,552 different achievements).

For the third week running Sleeping Dogs takes the clean sweep with a almost identikit table.

Top Retail Achievements Won

Nine of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light's twelve achievements take spots on the table, with a single one for Assassin's Creed Liberation appearing at the bottom.

Top Arcade Achievements Won

Two of these things are not like the others. Two of these things just don't belong. Unfortunately, it's the same two as last week so you've probably figured it out already.

Top Windows Phone Achievements Won

With such a quiet week again, the numbers continue to slide in Genre. Action-Adventure cuts off a whole 1 million again to under 8 million, whereas Shooter loses a more conservative 300,000. Like last week, all the other genres also see a dip in numbers.

Total TrueAchievements won by Genre
  • Action-Adventure7,992,551
  • Shooter4,354,506
  • Action2,640,100
  • Role-Playing1,656,856
  • Sports1,652,234
  • Racing1,281,980
  • Puzzle766,994
  • Platformer689,050
  • Strategy343,637
  • Card & Board306,560

And there we have it. Told you it wasn't going to be too exciting and you really should be looking here. Congratulations if you're still here though. Next week I'll bring in a special table because it looks to be another quiet one.
