The Most Played Game Of 2011? Skyrim, Duh…



This news excites me, I know a lot of people love Modern Warfare 3, and that’s fine, but Skyrim is overall a much higher quality title. Raptr, a stat tracking service reported that Skyrim was the most played game of 2011, not bad for a title that has been out for less than a month.

Raptr bases their data off several different factors; including average individual playtime, average session length and total playtime share among others. You can read Raptr’s full report here.

•    Most Played Game – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

•    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim dominated the RPG category with six times more total playtime than the closest competitor, Dragon Age 2.
