Most Played Games: September 2015

In September’s update for Most Played Games on Razer software, the majority of titles have retained similar positions in the Top 10 across the board. After 2 months in the Top 10, Heroes Of The Storm bows out for Battlefield 4 to reclaim its spot in the top 10 for the 3rd time since March. DOTA 2 loses ground to League of Legends with the exception of Asia, and Minecraft grows substantially in playtime across the board – remember to hop onto Razer Arena with your friends if you’re a Minecraft fan!

Battlefield 4 has reclaimed its spot in the Top 10 on September.

Moba, first person shooters and RPGs continue to be the top three most popular genres- placing team play and player interaction as huge factors in game preference for users. Multiplayer online battle arena games and first person shooters in particular are also competitive, with a low barrier for entry play being F2P; making it ideal for a friendly match between groups of friends. These two genres are undoubtedly the most ideal genres to ease first time gamers into gaming, contributing to their popularity. 

MOBA, First Person Shooters and Role-Playing Games remain the top three most popular genres for Razer users.

With BlizzCon coming up around the corner, we’re anticipating an increase in play time for Blizzard games in general as the event draws nearer- and looking forward to some multiplayer FPS madness in Overwatch. Did your most played game make the September list?

We expect an increase in play time for Blizzard games across the board with BlizzCon around the corner.

Top Stores Clicked to: August 2015

The ranking of the top game stores on Razer Cortex: Deals continues to be massively dominated by Steam and Origin whose share of traffic grows to 75% (an increase of 5% since July). The gap between the two front runners has widened slightly as Steam’s gains were greater than Origin’s.

Amazon jumps up from eighth to third, mimicking what Green Man Gaming accomplished in July. Capturing 5% of user traffic, Amazon stands at a very far distance from the top two.

Also moving up this month is Gamestop, going from penultimate to the middle of the board at 6th place. The only other rise was registered by GOG.com who moved up from the bottom by one position.

This month’s greatest drop comes from Battle.net. After solid discounts in July, August saw Blizzard’s store bring its prices back to normal.

Five months after it’s PC release, Grand Theft Auto V is still in front running positions with a respectable 2nd place and is starting to get its first discounts on several stores. This is the best time to have GTA V on your wishlist to get instant news on when its price drops.

Most Played Games: July 2015

In today’s update we’ll check how the ranking of the most played games on Razer software in July.

This month gamers have spent less time playing the top 10 titles across the board. All the same, the two most played games were where gamers invested over 50% of their time.

Razer gamers spent more than 50% of their time on Counter Strike: Global Offensive and League of Legends in July

Counter Strike: Global Offensive continues to top the chart as the most played game on Razer software at a global level and in Europe. It seems the gap between CSGO and second placer League of Legends is shrinking. Could the classic shooter’s reign at the top be close to its end?

Minecraft pops up two positions to 3rd place pushing down Hearthstone which landed behind DOTA 2 in fifth.

Paid games accounted for almost 55% of the time played in the top 10

After a two month absence, Heroes of the Storm makes a comeback to the global top 10, keeping up the growing trend we saw in Europe last month. With this return, Battlefield 4 gave way to Blizzard’s MOBA in 10th position.

Team Fortress 2 rose to the sixth position even though play time dropped by around 1% while World of Warcraft stepped a peg up on the ladder.

Another Blizzard hit, Diablo 3 takes a hit, falling down to ninth from sixth as gamers spent less than half their time playing this dungeon crawler when compared to June.

Moba games were the most played of the top 10 with 42%, first person shooters in second at 34% and RPGs third at 16%

Top Stores Clicked to: July 2015

The top game stores on Razer Cortex: Deals see a lot of shuffling  except for the two leading positions which are responsible for 70% of all visits.

Once again, Steam takes the first position with 44% of visits from Razer Cortex: Deals users. A slight drop from 51% last month when Steam held its annual Summer Sale.

Still solid in second, Origin racks in just a little over a quarter of all store visits from Cortex: Deals users.

Green Man Gaming shows the gains of its June summer sales in July as it shoots up to third from eighth place. Gamers are learning that there are deals to be found outside of major stores like Steam during the summer season.

The only other rise registered in the top game stores of June was Humble Bundle, from ninth to sixth place. All the other stores on Razer Cortex: Deals (except Steam and Origin) saw a decline in their ranking positions.

Also new in July was the inclusion of two new stores into the price comparison engine. This month we give a warm welcome to Indiegala and Paradox Plaza!

Grand Theft Auto V retakes the lead as the most wished game of July pushing Counter-Strike Global Offensive down a peg.

In third place is the newcomer Rocket League, one of the year’s most praised competitive games. An exquisite blend of football and driving resulting in some of the most fun gameplay involving cars with hats around.

Up from eighth position to fourth this month is Ark: Survival Evolved, dinosaurs clearly strike a chord with Cortex gamers. Can’t really blame them, nothing is more majestic than mounting a velociraptor and hunting a T-Rex for sport!

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is in the Top 10 for the third month straight, now at 3rd position after a slight drop to 7th in June. An unmissable western RPG that can’t be left out of any gamer’s collection.

H1Z1 makes a comeback after a one month absence from the most wished for games on Razer Cortex: Deals. The fight for the most desired zombie survival game against DayZ is back on!

June’s ranking of the top stores clicked to on Razer Cortex: Deals is in!

For the third month straight Steam and Origin top the chart in first and second position respectively. Steam racks up more than half of the clicks thanks to its popular Summer Sale which ran from 11 to 22 June. With hundreds of games on discount and lots of flash sales popping up for a limited time, Razer Cortex: Deals users kept checking back for the hottest deals on their favorite games and to not miss out on any bargains.

However, Steam wasn’t the only store with summer sales in June. Gamersgate, Uplay, Green Man Gaming and GOG.com also brought down their prices and gamers responded with all but Green Man Gaming registering growth and Uplay showing the highest rise in the top stores when compared to May.

Most Played Games: June 2015

Let’s take a look at June’s top played PC games on Razer Cortex.

In June League of Legend’s global winning streak is broken as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive becomes the game Razer Cortex users have spent the most time playing. The difference in time spent playing is small but it is interesting to see the ‘king of games’ dethroned by a long living classic.

Another noticeable change in the chart was the position swap between World of Warcraft and Battlefield 4 who take the two lower spots respectively.

At a regional level it’s interesting to see that each different part of the globe has its own favorite game. The Americas hold on to LoL, Asia favors its direct competitor DOTA 2 and Europe prefers the FPS genre with CS:GO.

Heroes of the Storm seems to be recovering some steam in Europe since its brief appearance in the top played PC games back in April. Could it be now that we’ll see Blizzard’s MOBA take over?
