June 2011 Gaming Analysis

The results shown below are of course based on the combined data from the Daily Game Log which should provide a clear indication of a game's usage frequency. Bear in mind that even if a game is played twice or more during a particular day, it would still register as 1 in the Day Count column below. In a sense, "merits" are given based on how often a particular game can make me play it again throughout the entire period of the month on a daily basis. A game that makes a gamer play it over and over again or at least spend a lot of time with it... Isn't that what we mostly want from a great game? I don't think it's really fair to count all the way down to the number of hours played since some games only require a short amount of time to properly serve their purposes.


Total Games Played: 31

It is the same story again for last month with League of Legends for the Personal Computer and Yourself!Fitness dominating the top of the chart. It is hard to stop playing LoL, even with the occasional encounters of people with unsavory attitude - at this point I am really used to them now. I am however still looking for a solid group of 4 regular teammates to play with and that is the only thing missing from my LoL experience. As for Yourself!Fitness, I have been using the program for 70+ days this time around and now my appetite is also changing alongside my physical appearance: I get hungry faster but I get full by eating very little food. I remember looking at a very recent picture that was taken of me and I was really surprised to see just how fit I look now. I do look at myself in the mirror everyday but seeing myself from top to toe actually made the difference there. I must say though, the belly bulge is one tough son of a fat to get rid of but it has taken quite a beating.

A surprise performer last month was Titan Quest for the PC, which nabbed the third place of most played game. For the first time in my Titan Quest life, I have finally reached the Immortal Thrones expansion content - fighting that last boss from the first game alone took forever however. I was really horny for some massively multiplayer online role playing game last month and though Titan Quest isn't one, the loot frenzy and level-up goodness did manage to steer me away from actually buying Rift when it was offered for some ridiculously low price. Well, the discovery of the fact that the epic armor sets for Rift look horrible probably helped me out somewhat as well...
