August 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: 32

It's the same old story: League of Legends on the Personal Computer dominated my playtime last month. I had a morbid thought the other day - if I ever lose all of the games I have in my possession, at least I know that if I could get a hold of a decent PC, I could always log on to play LoL. Well, then again, the same could be said about all my Steam games... Ah the security of digital gaming distribution. I don't need fancy cases, colorful discs, and thick game manuals... I just want to turn on a gaming client and access all of my games from its storage device. Digital distribution of games is truly a reality for PC gamers. I personally think that the consoles will eventually follow suit but in two more generations unfortunately, which is rather depressing of course.
