#4190168 What have you actually PLAYED tracker for 2018 (Season 11)

Posted by thegoldenband on Thu Jan 3, 2019 10:55 PM

Agreed! After crunching the numbers for just my own household I have a major appreciation for what an incredible amount of work you put into running this tracker every year, goldenband. I sure appreciate it too, the past 3 years I've been participating in the tracker have added some seriously needed structure to my gaming habits and made me think a lot more about what I play and the enjoyment I get out of it.

So, thanks! Thanks a ton! I'll be hoping to see the tracker up and running in 2019 as well. :)

 

Jin, you are very welcome! And thank you for your kind words of appreciation -- they do mean a lot -- and for your comments about adding structure to your gaming habits: that's exactly how this tracker has been helpful for me.

 

That's also an excellent segue into my announcement: as of the start of 2019, I'll be stepping down from running the tracker.

 

But never fear: carlsson has graciously agreed to take over the thread! So starting in 2019, he'll be your host. Of course he's an old hand at this, having run the excellent Modern Gaming tracker. 

 

carlsson and I have chatted about this possibility for several years, but some developments in my personal and professional life in 2018 made it clear that this was the right time for this transition. It works out well since I'd wanted to see the tracker through at least 2018, to make the 10-year anniversary.

 

As for my reasons for stepping down, don't worry -- it's nothing too calamitous, just a combination of small stuff and bigger stuff. (A large part of it is just work scheduling and computer problems.) And I fully intend to keep participating as a player, of course!

 

Thanks to everyone for participating over the past 8 years and for all your kind words; to carlsson for taking up the reins; and, of course, to cvga, for starting this whole thing in the first place!

As a (yearly) bonus, here are the all-time numbers for the 129 systems we've ever logged (up just one system from last year).
 
The only change in the Top 10 from last year is the TI-99/4A and Intellivision, which have swapped places with the TI moving up two spots and the Inty down two.

#4190120 What have you actually PLAYED tracker for 2018 (Season 11)

Posted by thegoldenband on Thu Jan 3, 2019 9:36 PM

And finally, we have the honor roll of the top games of all time, including all games with over 1000 minutes logged (a very big club at this point!). These year-end, all-time totals are complete all the way back through the founding of the tracker in 2008.
 
Some reached these heights thanks to one lone gamer, while others saw contributions from many different participants. But all have earned their place here, and none more so than our #1 game, Kaboom, which obviously dominates the field by an order of magnitude.
 
There have been no changes in the Top 5, but we have a strong new contender as Solar Fox rises from #41 last year to #6 this year. As predicted last year, Missile Command also joins the top 10 at #8, so we now have 5 VCS games in the all-time Top 10.
 
We're also rapidly approaching the time when the all-time Top 10 will be an affair restricted to games with 10,000 minutes or more. Right now only Berzerk and Historyline 1914-1918 fall short of that mark, and they'll probably need to add more minutes to stay in the Top 10!
 
So, without further ado, here they are:
 
Top games of all time (and members of the 1000-minute club):
 
1. Kaboom (Atari 2600) - 213631

8. Missile Command (Atari 2600) - 10096
9. Berzerk (Atari 2600) - 8560
10. Historyline 1914-1918 (PC (DOS)) - 8188
11. Dragon Warrior III (Game Boy Color) - 6815

#4190116 What have you actually PLAYED tracker for 2018 (Season 11)

Posted by thegoldenband on Thu Jan 3, 2019 9:33 PM

Now for the top systems of 2018 (though the list is all-inclusive, i.e. with all 79 platforms that were played in 2018).
 
This year it's the Atari VCS in the top spot yet again, while the Genesis is our #2 console (replacing the SNES, which held that position last year but drops to #12 this year). Sega's 16-bit console narrowly edges out the TI-99/4A at #3 and the NES at #4, in a tight race for second place.
 
As always, I enjoy noting that the VCS would have won even without its #1 game Kaboom, proving that it can more than hold its own against newer systems. After all, this is AtariAge!
 
Top systems of 2018:
 
1. Atari 2600 (62202)

Posted by thegoldenband on Thu Jan 3, 2019 9:31 PM

Overall summary for 2018:
 
In 2018, we played 2041 different games on 79 different systems, for a total of 222,720 minutes of gameplay (exactly 154 days and 16 hours).
 
That's about 78.6% of 2017's gameplay time, about 85% the number of games, and 8 fewer systems represented. So, a modest decrease across the board, but nothing too worrying -- it's all within the realm of normal year-to-year variation.

#4190091 What have you actually PLAYED tracker for 2018 (Season 11)

Posted by thegoldenband on Thu Jan 3, 2019 8:08 PM

Here's the summary for Week 52, running from December 24 - 31. We logged 5953 minutes of eligible play, playing 96 games on a total of 20 systems.
 
Top 10:
 
1. Tanglewood (Genesis) - 656
2. Ultima IV: Quest for the Avatar (Apple II) - 360
3. Romance of the Three Kingdoms III: Dragon of Destiny (Genesis) - 316
4. Solar Fox (Atari 2600) - 314
5. Kaboom (Atari 2600) - 281
6. Reindeer Rescue (Atari 2600) - 268
7. Mighty Bomb Jack (NES/Famicom) - 240
8. Legends II (TI-99/4A) - 210
9. Wizard's Doom (TI-99/4A) - 180
10. Toyshop Trouble (Atari 2600) - 143
 
Pre-NES top 10:
 
1. Ultima IV: Quest for the Avatar (Apple II) - 360
2. Solar Fox (Atari 2600) - 314
3. Kaboom (Atari 2600) - 281
4. Reindeer Rescue (Atari 2600) - 268
5. Legends II (TI-99/4A) - 210

8. Dig Dug (Arcade) - 125
9. St. Nick (TI-99/4A) - 120
10. Turmoil (TI-99/4A) - 110
 
Top 10 systems:
 
1. Atari 2600 (1697)
2. Genesis (972)
3. TI-99/4A (845)
4. Arcade (492)
5. NES/Famicom (407)
6. Apple II (390)
7. Atari 7800 (247)
8. Atari Lynx (160)
9. Amstrad CPC (155)
10. Atari 8-bit (148)
 
In the final week of 2018 we have Legends II, Romance of the Three Kingdoms III, and Ultima IV in the Top 10. But it's Tanglewood I, so to speak, that takes the crown for the week's most-played game.
 
However Ultima IV does claim the pre-NES crown, while the Atari VCS is the week's system du jour...well, system de la semaine, really. So three charts, three platforms -- always nice to see!
 
Meanwhile we have an armada of games joining the 1000-minute club, as Reindeer Rescue has 1146 minutes logged, the arcade version of Dig Dug* has 1077 min., Eggomania on the VCS has 1062 min., and Scramble on the Atari 7800 has 1022 min. That gives those games spots #350-353 in a crowded club!
 
(BTW it looks to me like the 25 minutes logged on the Tiny Arcade version of Dig Dug should probably be counted on the modern tracker, since it looks to have some graphical and gameplay differences that may mean the code has been ported and rewritten. Comments welcome.)
 
Year-end stats coming when I'm able -- either tonight or tomorrow -- along with a major announcement!

A solid recap.... I know you are master of Humility, so you won't sing your own praises, but I know it is no small Sacrifice to make sure the tracker is updated every week... You show great Compassion for the community.

((Damn, couldn't find an appropriate spot in there for Spirituality))

:D

 

Hey, thank you very much! And as for Spirituality, that's OK -- Lord British (aka Albert) has a "no politics or religion" policy anyway, and he's the only one that can grant me new levels. :D

 

By the way, do we run this last week extended as 8 days until Monday?

 

Yes please! Everyone can feel free to post their times ad lib as always, but definitely include your times for 12/31 as well.

Here's the summary for Week 51, running from December 17 - 24. We logged 4142 minutes of eligible play, playing 39 games on a total of 13 systems.
 
Top 10:
 
1. Ultima IV: Quest for the Avatar (Apple II) - 840
2. Tomb Raider (PlayStation) - 332
3. Contra: Hard Corps (Genesis) - 313
4. Solar Fox (Atari 2600) - 287
5. Tyrian 2000 (PC (DOS)) - 240
6. Stay Frosty 2: Stay Frostier (Atari 2600) - 220
7. M.U.L.E. (Atari 8-bit) - 210
8. Rocket Knight Adventures (Genesis) - 178
9. Kaboom (Atari 2600) - 164
10. Twinbee 3 (NES/Famicom) - 135
 
Pre-NES top 10:
 
1. Ultima IV: Quest for the Avatar (Apple II) - 840
2. Solar Fox (Atari 2600) - 287
3. Stay Frosty 2: Stay Frostier (Atari 2600) - 220
4. M.U.L.E. (Atari 8-bit) - 210
5. Kaboom (Atari 2600) - 164
6. St. Nick (TI-99/4A) - 130
7. Ultra SCSIcide (Atari 2600) - 106
8. Toyshop Trouble (Atari 2600) - 85
9. H.E.R.O. (Atari 2600) - 82
10. Baby Pac-Man [homebrew] (Atari 7800) - 54
 
Top 10 systems:
 
1. Atari 2600 (1115)
2. Apple II (840)
3. Genesis (491)
4. PlayStation (393)
5. PC (DOS) (305)
6. TI-99/4A (275)
7. NES/Famicom (235)
8. Atari 8-bit (225)
9. Sega Master System (111)
10. Atari 7800 (54)
 
I'll practice the virtue of Honesty when I note that Ultima IV on the Apple II has the Honor of being the week's top game.
 
And with such high numbers for the week, it's only Justice that Ultima IV reaches the 1000-minute club in spot #349, with 1640 minutes logged up until now.
 
However, a single game's Valor isn't enough to earn the #1 system title for the Apple II. That goes to the Atari VCS and a consortium of games, including the holiday-themed Stay Frosty 2.
