Games of the Decade

This week we revealed the community's Game of the Decade as per your personal votes, but it wouldn't be a TrueTrophies event without a bunch of stats. With that in mind, here are some of the big figures from TT's decade of gaming – the games you played the most, the trophies you unlocked, and more.

Whereas Xbox published titles arguably started strong in the early 2010s and dropped off dramatically as the decade wore on, PlayStation has only gone from strength to strength in its self-published titles, and our top 20 shows it. 10 of the top 20 games in this list are PlayStation exclusives, including the top 4 – all of which released in the latter half of the decade. PlayStation undoubtedly has a strong start going into the new decade, with only a scant handful of their exclusive AAA titles of the 2010s failing to become critically acclaimed behemoths. (It's also worth pointing out the relative youth of our site compared to TA, only kicking off part way through the decade – we've probably got fewer old hands kicking around on their PS3s compared to the 360 veterans on TA.)

Developers and Publishers of the Decade – Average Players Per Game

Rocket League

There's two ways to look at TT player numbers for publishers and developers - the combined total of players on each of their games, and the average amount of players per game. We've gone with the latter here. The former gives a bit of bias to the companies that can't stop producing games. For example, Ubisoft Montreal would come out on top with a combined player count of 676,000 TT players, but then they released 38 games on PlayStation in 10 years.

With that in mind, here are the top developers and publishers by average TT player count – the studios that managed to retain the biggest audience across their catalogues. Remember, this only includes TT players that popped a trophy.

Position Developer Games Released 2010-2019 Average Player Count
1 Psyonix 1 61001
2 Bungie 2 51615
3 Treyarch 4 43512
4 Santa Monica Studio 4 39660
5 Wholesale Algorithms 1 35970
6 Ubisoft Quebec 2 34807
7 Bethesda Softworks 1 33210
8 Hangar 13 1 32817
9 Irrational Games 1 32372
10 Massive Entertainment 2 31361
Position Publisher Games Published 2010-2019 Average Player Count
1 Psyonix 1 61001
2 Playrise Digital 1 27349
3 Mojang AB 2 21264
4 Rockstar 17 20633
5 Humble Hearts 1 20391
6 Blizzard Entertainment 4 19973
7 Mojang 1 19159
8 Team Meat 1 18791
9 Cellar Door Games 1 18024
10 High Horse Entertainment 1 16040
While Rocket League certainly stands on its own regardless of how players acquired it, the developer and publisher lists certainly show TT's bias towards a PSN subscription – if there's a developer or publisher you don't recognise or are surprised to see in the above lists, chances are that the games they have made ended up in the PS Plus monthly list at some point and accrued a large chunk of our player base. While many of these PS Plus titles are pretty good, we were still surprised to see so many take a spot in the top 10, especially compared to TA where plenty of pricier blockbusters still managed to muscle into the top 10 above Games with Gold.

TrueTrophies Community Stats

Between us, registered TT community members started 19.7 million games9440 unique titles – between 2010 and 2019. We only managed to complete 3.6 million games, though; so much for our communal completion percentage. Interestingly, TT gamers started 3,782 more unique games that TA gamers in the same period – though that's likely down to the way PlayStation splits their store fronts into distinct regional versions of a game, as well as the fact that they have a handheld and a VR platform to port to. Here are the games we started and completed the most:
