What's your most played game this gen?

Post by Rayne » Sun Apr 30, 2017 11:35 am

As per the title! Out of all games this generation, which one has taken up the most of your gaming time and why?

For me it's Overwatch. If you'd told me at the start of this gen that my most played game would be an online-only competitive multiplayer shooter, I would have laughed you out of the room.

To date I've put somewhere in the region of 300 hours into it and there's no signs of me slowing down any time soon. Continued updates, new characters, an evolving meta-game and, of course, having a team of friends online, all give me reason to keep coming back.

Are you genuinely interested in an answer or just looking for an excuse to gush about Overwatch?

I'd have to check my game history to see what I've played the most. I do know it isn't Overwatch because Overwatch is garbage. I might get back to you on this but I might not.

Not sure, but it has to be between

Mario 3D world. Completed this twice with my little girl and once by myself. Spent countless hours finding all the collectibles. a masterpeice of a game that is getting overlooked because of the WiiUs poor sales.

Killer instinct - An amazing game that has evoved into a game with so much content and things to do.

The Forza games - dozens of hours spent on these.

My two most played games are last gen remasters...
Skyrim on Xone
EDF on PS4

I've sunk a lot of hours into Horizon on PS4 too. :D

I only get a few hours per week to play, but the answers is definitely Rocket League at this stage.

I'm genuinely curious to see what games this gen have gathered the most attention. I know so many fellow gamers with such large game libraries that I'm always impressed when, out of hundreds of titles, one can demand so much of their limited free time. I imagine Destiny would be a popular pick, maybe GTA V Online. Not sure what else though.

Of course if you'd rather I gush about OW I'd be happy to oblige :lol: .

Is that the EDF that was on sale a little while ago?? A few friends and I were thinking of getting into it. Fond memories of EDF on the 360 :)

GTA V without any doubt.

Forza Horizon 3 would probably be a close second.

Destiny. Probably spent a few hundred hours playing that game over the last couple of years. Need to take one last dip into the game before the sequel is released in September.

Otherwise its probably any of the Yakuza series, as a whole I've spent a few hundred hours playing them, probably averaging out at 80-120 each... Good thing most games I play are on the short side to counter all the time I spend with them...

Street Fighter V will hopefully end up on this list. I've just gotten back into it after not really playing it all that much but I'm having a blast with it playing it online (as Zangief).

Also Destiny. Currently somewhere over 2100 hours playtime.....I would imagine crusto would say the same, given that we game together. :)

Either UFC 2 on the ps4 or fallout 4, I'm thinking more so fallout, love it and playing it now. Settlement building takes a lot of my time but I hardly build anything at the same time? Strange.

King of Fighters XIV probably. Can't say I've really hammered any PS4 game but that one has received some serious playtime.

According to the Xbox I have 240 hours on Fallout 4 and there's still probably plenty of quests I haven't even done yet

Bloodborne and Dark Souls 3 with honoury mentions
