Most Wished For Games: October 2015

Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi and Ubinota might seem like unlikely leaders in October’s Most Wished For Games on Razer Cortex: Deals, but you might have noticed the trend- they were part of two huge giveaways that were extremely well received by our fans. We teamed up with Bundle Stars and IndieGala to give out more than 200,000 Steam keys to our Razer users. The keys were all snapped up in under 60 hours, catapulting these 2 games up to the top of the ranking. For the lucky users who acted fast, we hope you are enjoying the keys. For the others, remember to hit us up on Facebook and Twitter for updates on our next giveaway.

“Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi and Ubinota leap to the top two spots in the leader boards for October after a huge fan turnout for in our latest Steam key giveaways.”

Fallout 4 held on to the 3rd spot in anticipation of its launch, we reckon that it would have taken the first spot were it not for the widely popular Steam key giveaways. While November looks to have a pretty robust list of new games, we think it’s safe to say that Fallout 4 will still claim the lion’s share of the limelight.

“Fallout 4 remains the most anticipated game for the Quarter.”

Minecraft: Story Mode makes its debut at the 5th spot following its highly raved about release, while Mad Max drops out of the Top 10 after a single month. Grand Theft Auto V, Rocket League, Counter-Strike Global Offensive and Ark: Survival Evolved remain in the Top 10.

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.

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%

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?

Most Played Games: May 2015

In May, Razer Cortex users have put more of their game time into the top 10 most played games with an overall increase in time spent playing across the board.

League of Legends maintains a strong leading position as the most played game of May. The direct competitor, DOTA 2, on the other hand, drops down to 4th, losing its gains from the previous month.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive holds onto second place. With the new Operation Bloodhound content update reaching gamers at the end of May CS:GO grew more than 11% in global game time.

Last month’s new-comer, Heroes of The Storm, drops out this time around and Battlefield 4 jumps in at 9th place to fill the gap.

Most Played Games: April 2015

April’s most played games on Razer Cortex are in! League of Legends holds on to the top position while DOTA 2 gains ground and Blizzard’s Heros of the Storm enters the MOBA fight while still in beta.

With this new entry, Blizzard is dominating with 4 of the most played games on Cortex, beating Valve by one game.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with over 4 years of age stays strong thanks not only to the quality of gameplay but also to its thriving modding community, making it a classic through the ages.
