Our latest community challenge has come to a close, so it's time to crunch the numbers as we look forward to the next one. Let us know what you thought of Link Frog and celebrate another successful contest with us!

For those of you that missed it, the Link Frog Challenge asked the community to string as many trophy unlocks together as they could, by matching the last letter of the previously unlocked trophy with the first letter of the next.

What games did participants typically go for? The inclusion of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and HITMAN in a recent PS Plus month seems to have pushed their easiest trophies into the table. I will admit to being part of the problem in noticing that POWGI's One Word was both easy to rack up trophies in, and full of useful common letters at the beginning and end of the trophy names.
