What Did We Play? - APPS LIST LIVE!!

Post by euan707 » Sun Jan 15, 2017 12:15 pm

After 4 tough years, Nintendo are releasing the successor to the Wii U, The Switch, on 3rd March 2017. To celebrate our next home console, and to mourn the death of the Wii's ultimately doomed brother, I thought it was about time we came together to see what the best games to grace it's disc reader, according to our activity logs.

Image

This is a cross forum project. Users from SONM, GRcade and GNamer will be coming together to submit times.

Getting involved is simple. All you have to do is power up your Wii U, head into the activities log, and take note of the amount of time spent on each game. Unfortunately, unlike the 3DS, there's no option to view your top played games, so you'll have to do it manually. Once you've taken a note of all your most noticable games, post the list in the thread. There's no limit to how many games you can submit, and if you have more than 1 WiiU, you can post lists from both!

Image

But it's not just games this time round, oh no... We're counting apps as well. Yes, I'm looking at all you eShop window shoppers. You're free to, hell I encourage you to post your times for apps, such as eShop, Youtube, Miiverse ect.

Along with your times, you can post comments about your thoughts or memories about the game. They might be featured in the final list!

Each forum will receive its own list of top games, compiled of its member's times. In addition to this, an overall, combined list will also be compiled, using everyone's times. The apps will only appear in a combined list.

Image

To counter some balancing issues, the TWEWY (The World Ends With You) rule exists. This means that, if only 1 user enters a time for a game, only 25% of the total time is counted. If 2 users enter a time for a game, 50% of the time is counted. In order for all times to be counted, 3 or more users must submit a time for the game. This rule won't apply to the app list.

I'll accept time from now until 13th February. Then, on Friday 17th February, I'll post the top games from each forum. Finally, on Sunday 19th February I'll gradually post the top Games and Apps lists on all three sites. By that point, hopefully, we'll be ready to move on from the most untimely of deaths.

This is a great idea, euan! I'm not a regular poster in SONM and so I've posted my stats in the GRcade forum.

"I'm excited!" to see what the results will be :) .

Well I've done it for my games, my apps past the Internet browser is next to nothing as my iPad takes care of my browsing and streaming habits, even the Internet browser is probably only around 25-30 hours.

Top played Wii U games

Xenoblade Chronicles X - now 108:31, put 64 hours into over the past month.... That's a lot for me
FIFA 13 - 97:45
Mario Kart 8 - 87:52
Assassins Creed IV Black Flag - 74:30
Assassins Creed 3 - 61:01
Super Mario 3D World - 53:10
The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess HD - 46:27
The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD - 41:57
Project Zero Maiden of Black Water - 33:06
Hyrule Warriors - 33:05
ZombiU - 30:21
Batman Arkham Asylum - 25:17
Captain Toad Treasure Tracker - 24:36
Yoshis Woolly World - 22:17
Splatoon - 15:58
Smash Bros - 15:22
Trine 2 - 15:11
Mass Effect 3 - 10:12
Mario Maker - 08:34
Earthbound - 06:23
Watch_Dogs - 06:15
Star Fox Zero - 06:09
Pikmin 3 - 05:58
Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze - 04:58
Shovel Knight - 02:11
Rayman Legends 02:00

I just thought I'd post them all, still don't know why they didn't put a total time into the activity log, would have made it a lot easier. I probably won't update any timings before you start to collect the results so obviously this is true of 15/01/17 at 14:09.

Games

1) Super Smash Bros - 121:43
2) Xenoblade Chronicles X - 98:41
3) Lego City Undercover - 76:08
4) New Super Mario Bros U - 73:08
5) Lego Marvel - 69:51
6) Nintendo Land - 68:48
7) Wind Waker HD - 57:05
8) Mario Kart 8 - 56:28
9) Hyrule Warriors - 54:07
10) Lego Hobbit - 53:46
11) Twilight Princess HD - 50:12
12) Super Mario Maker - 46:26
13) Lego Force Awakens - 44:59
14) Lego Jurassic World - 37:53
15) Super Mario 3D World - 36:05
16) Rayman Legends - 35:28
17) Arkham City - 27:49
18) DKC Tropical Freeze - 26:53
19) Trine 2 - 26:13
20) Splatoon - 19:10

Smash Bros made the top easily as it gets played the most every time a friends comes round - that numbers only gonna keep growing until an inevitable Switch port. Xenoblade X was a massive game - the meat of that time comes from the sidequests which I consider to be the best parts of the game. Quite a lot of Lego games up there too - can't resist 100%ing them. Sorry Splatoon, you're awesome, but I'm just not that into online multiplayer.


Apps

1) Internet - 83:55
2) Miiverse - 20:01
3) Netflix - 14:25
4) Amazon Video - 12:13
5) eShop - 11:18

The high internet usage is basically from the year when I first had the Wii U in which I didn't have a smart phone - so I'd use the gamepad to browse Facebook etc in the evenings.
Ever since joining the original ONM I've been a huge Nintendo fan (specifically Zelda) and am looking forward to some great discussions. I was previously known as Lego Master

If you click on a game icon, it'll tell you the total time you've played that game.

Yeah thankfully it's not that bad, I just meant that there's no list of the combined times for all games.

I've definitely enjoyed the Wii U. I got it at launch and played it quite a lot around then, and then didn't touch it for two years until I started having friends round and it was just great fun to play. Especially stuff like Nintendo Land, anyone can pick it up and enjoy.

Booted up my Wii U and here's mine
Games:
  1. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U - 134:53
  2. Super Mario Maker - 51:42
  3. Mario Kart 8 - 32:14
  4. Nintendo Land - 31:17
  5. Lego City Undercover - 20:00
  6. Super Mario 3D World - 13:11
  7. Wii Party U - 10:32
  8. Splatoon - 8:05
  9. Scribblenauts Unlimited - 5:55
  10. New Super Mario Bros. U - 2:26
  11. Rayman Legends - 2:21

  14. Wii Sports Club - 0:50
  15. F-Zero - 0:37
  16. Trine 2 - 0:36
  17. Rayman Legends Demo - 0:31
  18. Little Inferno - 0:20
  19. Rayman Legends Challenges App - 0:19 (Not sure what this one falls under)
  20. amiibo Touch & Play Nintendo Classics Highlights - 0:09
Apps
  1. YouTube - 7:38
  2. Miiverse - 4:34
  3. Nintendo eShop - 2:15
  4. Internet Browser - 1:38
  5. Mii Maker - 1:37
  6. Wii Street U - 0:07
  7. Nintendo TVii - 0:03

  9. Wii U Chat - 0:02
  10. Uplay - 0:02
  11. Lovefilm Instant - 0:01
  12. Netflix - 0:01
I've included Demos and absolutely everything even if just played for a minute (which I assume is me accidentally pressing on them).

Also, I have a question. What was Nintendo TVii? I vaguely remember clicking on it and saying coming soon, but I can't remember anything else.

Just a little over a fortnight to get your times in. As of now, SONM alone has racked up an incredible 127 times. That's 13 more than the other two forums combined.

But we're not turning this into a competition, right?

Since I posted my times I've mainly just played Xenoblade Chronicles X, I'll try and remember to update my times before the deadline, probably have a little more on Mario Kart 8 if I can make the Saturday night race evenings.

Just a few weeks to get any final times in.

In the meantime, there's a few tight battles going on between some similar games. Just for fun, I'll update a poll within the thread every few days to see where the majority stand with them.

First up, Wind Waker HD vs Twilight Princess HD. Which do you think will be more popular?

Splatoon and Smash Bros with online friends hold so many memories for me. Additionally, Hyrule Warriors and Mario Maker when my friends comes over are just as fun.

Welcome to the forums Deku98, impressive time spent on Smash Bros Wii U! Makes your time spent on Splatoon, Mario Maker and Mario Kart look meagre in comparison.

Thank you for the welcome! I used to be part of the old ONM forums when they were up, took me a while to join this place haha
Yeah, it's insane! If the GameCube had a feature like this pretty sure melee would be 1000 hours +
