WordPress used to do a Year in Review until they stopped for 2017 but PlayStation does it and I love seeing my stats! I’m addicted to checking out the stats of the blog. I just like seeing the numbers.
You could click on the link but I’m going to provide the information with some commentary.
In 2018, you played 46 different games
Which doesn’t feel right but I must have attempted several games.
My top games were Lego Dimensions (428 hours), Fallout 4 (211 hours), and Fallout Shelter (131 hours)
Lego Dimensions, I definitely share that time with Walker Dennis as he plays solo sometimes. Also, like his Kindle usage, he doesn’t turn it off so there will be times where he starts the game and then leaves the game on so he can play with his Legos and tries to incorporate the screen into his play or uses it as inspiration. But still, I imagine it is a legitimate 400 hours.
Top Genre :
Action Adventure, 18 Games, 231 Trophies, 600 hours
Which makes sense, as that’s my go to genre
I’m not sure what RPG is relating too, I waited to see if more stats were going to load but they never came.
Did you know? Players made a total of 119,919,423 home runs in MLB The Show 18 last year?
I wasn’t one of those.
In 2018, I clocked in 1,065 hours in gameplay.
Which seems like a lot!
All of that time was spent locally, I have zero hours in online play and in VR. As I don’t play multiplayer nor do I have a VR headset.
Longest gaming streak was six consecutive hours
Which I’m not sure when that would have been as I can’t imagine playing for more than three hours in a row.
I played 313 out of 365 days
Which makes sense as I usually try to play at night but I took off 52 days.
My prime gaming hours is the daytime
Which doesn’t sound right at all, that must be Walker playing after school.
My prime day of gaming would be Saturday
Which does sound right as that’s when I get to play with Walker or I get to sneak in some gaming time by myself.
Did you know Kratos was slain 924,757,695 times in God of War last year?
I’m hoping to eventually play God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn at some point this year. HZD’s complete edition is usually $20, which is right in my price range. I just want to put a dent in my backlog before taking on another massive game.
I earned 495 trophies in 2018
Which is super impressive! I love me an open world but there are times when I realized I spent more time in the world doing side stuff but that usually doesn’t amount to many trophies. But I like to think of myself as more of a casual trophy hunter. I’ll get the ones I want or am close to but I won’t necessarily grind for one, such as find 100 newspapers or something. Especially if collectibles are super hidden.
Trophy Breakdown : 8 Platinums, 40 Gold, 107 Silver, and 340 Bronze
I really did try my best to get Platinums this year and I’m impress with the ones I did.
Did you know players drove a total of 7.3 billion miles in Gran Turismo Sport last year?
I wasn’t one of those either.
I downloaded 55 free games through PlayStation Plus last year.
So if you are wondering how many free games there were, it was 55. Well, I didn’t get the PS3 games and I missed out on some Vita games. Now I wished I did purposely download the PS3 ones as one never knows if the PS5 will have backwards compatibility (hopefully it does!) and maybe we’ll get to play these older downloads again. I know I want to play my X-Men arcade game again and Scott Pilgrim too.
I saved $24.99 in sales and discounts
I’m not sure what this one is in relation to as the only thing I bought was the Spider-Man : The City that Never Sleeps DLC but maybe I bought something else but I’m not sure what it would have been.
Did you know there were 28 free PS4 games last year?
I did as I got all of those! Including Call of Duty : Black Ops III.
Those over 100 hours months must have been Fallout Shelter related! I was obsessed with that game.
Most of those trophies have be bronze trophies but it does seem like a lot.
I wonder what same six games I was playing? Lego Dimensions, Fallout Shelter (I stopped playing that back in September), and whatever my main game must have been.
Knowing these stats might be coming, I really should attempt those free PSN games. I wish I could get more of a breakdown of what I played per month but I do like seeing the information in a table. I wished WordPress had a table mode as it bugs me that the lines are not fixed in place. I had to retype it in Excel to get it in a table format. It looks so much better now.
Like, what happened in October where I got over a 100 trophies?! Those must have been some generous games. That must have been Uncharted 3, right?
I had to go to my PSN Profile Page to get some answers, not many but some.

Hidden Agenda was the main game in October, along with RiME, Ghostbusters, and Fallout Shelter. Four games that were pretty generous. Games usually start off with loads of trophies but a few give more at the end too, which makes sense on both sides.
I’m a Master Adventurer, with 46 Games, 1065 Hours, and 495 Trophies
Here is what is coming to PlayStation in 2019!
Resident Evil 2
Kingdom Hearts III
I’m not slated to play any of these but Days Gone does look good. I’m just not much of a zombie guy.
. . .
Like I wrote above, I got the platinum on Spider-Man, and I’ve 100% The Heist. I’m still having a great time. I must be towards the end of Turf Wars, as my percentage is in the 70s. Using The Heist, I used the Black Cat costume exclusively.
It just made sense. I wasn’t sure what I should wear for Turf Wars until I unlocked the Mark One armor, then I’m just using that:
For Silver Lining, someone on reddit commented on how the White 2099 costume looks like it could be a Silver Sabre costume:
So that works for me. Maybe too red now that I’m looking at it. I’ll start off with it and see how long it lasts. I was thinking the Armor Mark One suit would be an even better Sabre uniform but it is too late now. I have so many trophies while wearing the other one, I want to break it up.
Thanks to polygon for hosting the images.
Such a great gaming website. I used them a lot for Spider-Man and Fallout 4.
I like how they include the Silver Lining costumes as it seemed like once the game came out, some websites hadn’t updated with the DLC content or they stopped at Turf Wars.
Having the Heist focused on Black Cat, and having a Black Cat provided costume, it just made sense to combine the two for the DLC. Since I was already having that thought, I wanted to one a main suit for each DLC.
. . .
Walker has gotten Marty from LEGO Dimensions and we are having a great time cleaning up the minikits and rescue characters using the DeLorean.
My beautiful wife got him Starfire, and we’ve been using her rainbow abilities to get other missing minikits.
I had to make a list of all of the time traveling options we need to still do. During the level proper, I forgot to access the secret Dance location so we still have to do that. I also got him the Green Arrow exclusive pack, he didn’t unlock anything we didn’t already have but we like Arrow and I got him relatively inexpensively.
We also won a bid on eBay for Emmet for seven dollars, including shipping, so that concludes our LEGO Dimensions shopping. I might wait two months and get him Fantastic Beasts in March and maybe one more item but we have plenty of content at the moment.
So Walker will be happy, we told him if he really wanted Emmet, he would have to pay for it. He has five dollars and I’ll probably do that bad parent thing of pretending to take the five dollars and then sneak it back in. His mother keeps his wallet at all times, so he’ll never know one way or another. Sometimes he’ll ask how much money he has and then I’m reminded of how much he has but he rarely wants anything that isn’t a dollar or two.
Now I really want that Supergirl figure but unless I’m just given $60 for no reason, I doubt we’ll ever get her. She does have a few abilities we are still missing.
She has Ice and Freeze Breth, powers (only two others have it, Blossom and Superman), Invulnerability (something that has yet to come up but would have helped during Portal 2 moments), and she can turn into a Red Lantern, but that’s not something I’ve seen that we need thus far. She can construct LEGOS which is an ability Buttercup has and I don’t quite remember seeing when we did the Powerpuff Girls World but we must have.
I just checked eBay again and the cheapest I saw was $49.99 and the most expensive was a $70, some are combining her with Green Arrow for well over a hundred dollars but luckily we’re no longer in need of both.
The Teen Titans Go world has a Sonic race that was the first one of those I saw. Starfire did pretty well until it got to a loopy loop section and I gave up. There is a jumping race that Lego City world has that I tried several times and I’m just 20 seconds too slow so I’ll have to come back to that one eventually. I’m not sure which character is the best for acrobatic races but it isn’t Robin. Though I’m sure they are all the same and it is all operator error. Though there is a difference with character’s swimming abilities and some vehicles are noticeably better at flying too.
