By Chewie, 2 years ago
This report is for the period September 28th to October 4th 2015.
Welcome to the stats from here on TA for the very end of September into the very beginning of October.

The Big Numbers
60,463 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 85,273 games between them (2,038 different games).

5,988 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 7,755 games between them (1,178 different games).

138,980 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 1,318,626 achievements online between them (55,067 different achievements).

Xbox One
New Games with Gold freebie Valiant Hearts: The Great War leads the charge with almost 20,500 starters and eight spots on Achievements Won. Being an easy completion it also jumps to the top of Completed with almost 880 completions. Its free predecessor Tomb Raider - Definitive Edition takes second place with recent sports titles FIFA 16 and NBA 2K16 slipping into third and fourth.

Two new releases from this week, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 and LEGO Dimensions, grab seventh and eighth with between 1,300 and 1,600 starters. Other new releases The Escapists: The Walking Dead, Standpoint, Toto Temple Deluxe, ORBIT and Polychromatic don't make the tables.

Thanks to the week's sales and a decent discount, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor - Game of the Year Edition grabs ninth with nearly 1,100 starters. The sales also put easy completion Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition into completed at fourth behind recent release Guns, Gore & Cannoli.

Xbox 360
New freebie Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (Xbox 360) steps up above its predecessor Crysis 3 with its 1,700 starters. As a comparatively shorter game than others, it also settles into the number two spot on Completed. It only manages three spots on Achievements Won though, with Crysis grabbing the rest. Crysis also manages to make it to seventh on Completed with 20 completions.

Like on the One, the sales put Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (Xbox 360) into eighth with almost 120 starters. Last week we saw Saints Row IV and Saints Row: The Third as the most completed games thanks to fixed achevements. They still stay high in third and fourth this week, above recent sale title and easy completion Assassin's Creed II.

XBLA gives us very little to talk about with Frozen Free Fall: Snowball Fight (Xbox 360) remaining easily on top above Rare Replay stuff.

The Windows tables also don't give us many surprises, with Microsoft Solitaire Collection (UWP) still sitting comfortably on top. One entry is Project Spark (Win 8), which jumps into seventh, presumably thanks to the news that it was going completely free. I'd expect it to climb higher in subsequent weeks.

Windows Phone
Doodle God Blitz (WP) still leads the table on Windows Phone and grabs nine spots on Achievements Won, up by one from last week. With the unexpected release of some DLC, Bad Piggies (WP) lands on Completed in fifth with over 20 completions.

Valiant Hearts gives Action-Adventure a boost in numbers from 13.7 million to over 19.2 million. After last week's push into second, Sports slips back into third behind Shooter. The rest of the table sees little change.
