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?

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%

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?
