Raptr: Skyrim played more than any other game in 2011
Here's an absolute shocker: Skyrim took the gold for the most-played game of 2011 in Raptr's inaugural Most Played Awards.
The awards, which are achieved solely on the hours that players have put into a game, were spread out among a number of categories. Notable awards include Skyrim (obviously) which not only won Most Played of the year, but also took home the title of Most Played RPG. Modern Warfare 3 was another strong contender, barely losing to Skyrim for the overall award but still taking home Most Played Shooter of 2011.
Other notable, and utterly shocking, wins are Batman: Arkham City for Most Played Open-World Game of 2011, FIFA 12 for Most Played Sports Game of 2011, and L.A. Noire for Most Played New IP of 2011.
