The awesome folks at PlayStation released all of our stats for 2019!
Here is mine :
So much fun!
I would not have imagine Spider-Man being my number one game of 2019 but it makes sense. It was practically the only game I played for all of January and most of February.
Lego Marvel Superheroes and Lego Dimensions are games that Walker Dennis will play by himself, but under my name, but it makes sense a Lego game would fill up my next two slots. I would be curious what my fourth game of the year would have been but I imagine it would just be another Lego game.
I figured I would have had Action-Adventure as my main genre, as those are the games I lean towards the most. Especially third person action adventure.
Of the 365 days of the year, I gamed 314 days, and that sounds about right. Pretty easy to imagine that there were 51 nights where I just went straight to bed.
I do not own a VR so 0 hours makes sense.
36 hours of online play, which is way higher than 2018 as I did not play any online games and made a bigger point of playing more of them in 2019. I played Dead by Daylight for 18 hours last year, so another 18 is split between For Honor and who knows what other games.
I really wish I knew which 91 games I played in 2019 were as I have a hard time imagining I played even 50. We were given 24 games through PS+, so that’s 24, then I imagine I easily played another 25 games of my own choosing, so 50, but what were the other 41 games? Of those 25, I know I tried a slew of free games, but I still find it hard to believe I played 91 different games. Would be pretty impressive, if true. But if I start questioning that stat, I probably have to question them all, and the rest seems pretty accurate.
Except for the 14 hour longest gaming streak, I am not sure how that would have even been possible. I barely get to play for an hour and a half on most week nights, and on the weekend, I cannot imagine we played more than three hours at a time. It is just too much time spent in front of the television. Shame it does not give me that date for that.
Actually, there are two numbers up there for the PS+. One states at least 24 games was given but I downloaded 34 monthly games so there are ten more games right there!
I saved up to $60 on games and DLC, with just being a PS+ subscriber, so that literally paid for itself right there.
Sunday Evenings makes as much sense as any, the evening makes perfect sense. Maybe of those missing 51 nights, none of those were Sunday nights?
12 Platinums this year! I now have 26 Platinums, as I was trying to make a bigger point of earning platinums this year. One a month, not too shabby! I already got January’s plat taken care of with Lego Marvel Superheroes 2! What a grind towards the end! Those missions are very long!
On my list, I have Lego Marvel Superheroes 1 and Lego Avengers, and then I squeezed five plats in-between them, before getting Lego Marvel Superheroes 2. I wanted them to be a tad closer to each other but I was pretty burnt out on Lego at that time. Walker Dennis really wants to be there with me when I play Lego Batman 3, so I am not sneaking and getting any of those free plays done as I am using that time to play other games.
Those other five games were : Batman : The Enemy Within, Late Shift, Rocket League, Murdered Soul Suspect, and One Night Stand.
I might have to purposely pick some quick (but respectable) platinums to get at the beginning of each month. I definitely have four pages of Wishlist items over at psprices, so I should be able to widdle that list down to at least three pages this year. That is my main gaming goal for 2020.
. . .
There is a $20 Games Sale going on right now!
I just treated my wife to the Wheel of Fortune / Jeopardy combo for $13, down from $40! She does love a good trivia game.
That is three games right off of my wishlist already! That was nicely timed. Eight more games and I get to three pages.
We were given a pretty cool set of Avatars and a cool 2019 Wrap Up Theme, so please check out your own stats and download those free items! And please feel free to share your own achievements!
The sale ends on February 5.
Since I am obsessed with taking the lists that redditors are so nice to compile, and put those in an Excel sheet.
One game I will for sure buy, is the Return to Arkham set, just whenever it is below ten, I will buy it. It gets as cheap as $5, but I really do not want to spend $20 for it. But I will buy it next time it is even $8. I just really want it after Walker Dennis started his own Knight game under his own game. I help him with the boss fights or any really complicated section, but he has been doing a lot of it on his own.
He just started Spider-Man PS4 as well, and he is having a blast there.
Looking at the sale :
Batman : The Enemy Within is totally worth if for five dollars.
Arkham Knight at $10 and the Premium Edition is $20, both worth it.
Conan Exiles for $20 is too much.
Dead by Daylight : Special Edition, totally worth it at $15, BUT! Be prepared to spend up to $20 for buying your favorite characters.
I want Doctor Who Edge of Time, but it is a VR game. I have added it to my wishlist if it ever goes super cheap.
Ghostbusters Remastered is $18, which is too much for me, especially for a one play game.
Grand Theft Auto V is worth $15.
If I had not just bought Wheel of Fortune / Jeopardy, I would be tempted to get Hasbro Family Fun Pack – Conquest Edition, as it comes with Monopoly Plus, Risk, Urban Assault (?), Battleship and Scrabble. Which I do have that 3-in-1 Monopoly combo on my wishlist but all of those games are right up my wife’s alley! Next time, game, next time! The cheapest it has been is $12 and it is $14 right now.
Injustice 2 Legendary Edition is typically $15, and I would buy it if I was done with the first game.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes looked super fun during PlayStation Access’s Christmas Maze, but no one would play with me, but $6 seems worth it.
So much fun!
Knack at $10 seems a bit much, but I still have to finish my copy.
Mad Max at $10 is worth it. Such a fun game!
Mafia III, I should really go back to it, not sure if $10 is worth it but I bet you would get ten dollars out of it.
PlayStation Access is huge on Outer Wilds, which is $20.
I have yet to play Rayman Legends, but I own it but five dollars, any game is worth it at that price. I am redownloading it as I type this! So I will play some of it soon.
Risk for $6 but I might as well just get it in the Hasbro pack.
I am sure I have the basic version of The Surge, but the Augmented Edition for $14 might be worth it. I did not get that far into it.
The Wolf Among Us is $5, but I (and others) suspect it will be a free game sometime before the sequel comes out.
TitanFall 2 Standard Edition is totally worth it at $8, I still have not got pass the first mission but it is definitely a quality game.
Trackmania Turbo for $10 is not bad, Walker Dennis played the heck out of that game.
Unravel Yarny Bundle is $11 and on my wishlist. I have enough active games unfortunately. But each game is essentially five dollars, so that is a good deal.
For my taste, WipEout Omega Collection is way too much at $15. I just did not take to it.
XCOM 2 is probably worth $15 to a lot of people who love the game. I did not get too far in my copy.
. . .
Once again, and I will keep typing this as often as possible, the bulk of those titles I have opinions on above, the majority came with my PS+ subscription, I would never have sampled even 75% of these games.
Gosh, there are two games right at $1.04, Defunct and SHINY – A Robotic Adventure. I do like the idea of me buying the cheapest game on the list, just to see what it is like.
Defunct as a Platinum but no PlayStationTrophies.org guide. SHINY also has a Platinum, but also no PlayStationTrophies.org guide. Dang it! At least Defunct has a PSNProfiles guide but all video, so that is also disappointing. That is the problem with these cheaper games.
whoa whoa whoa!
I was going to just move onto Adam’s Venture : Origins for $2.54 but hol’ up a minute!
With my PS+ subscription, both Defunct and SHINY are 29 cents each! For 60 cents, I can get two games! I imagine they worth at least some time, unless they are just complete garbage. I will have to do some additional research.
Looks like both games have Complete Editions that come with avatars and themes, which I do like me a theme, so that kills my buzz a bit. Metacritic for both games states that they are playable, if not each having their own short comings. I may have to think about it some more.
. . .
I am okay with missing out on the avatars and Shiny has two themes, one is constantly at $3 but the other gets as cheap as 49 cents and Defunct only has the one theme and that also gets pretty cheap, like also around 50 cents, so I am just going to buy those games for super cheap! Probably will not get the platinum for either one, unless the collectibles are pretty easy, but that is okay.
