Games Our Nerds And Friends Play

By Kevin on Sep 05 2012 11:14 PM
For the past few days, I've been beaming the bustling streets of G+ with the signals of my Survey Radar (Pokémon reference). High, low, here and there, I've been gathering data everywhere; literally. One of my fellow Google+ friends, Travis Hendricks, created a post asking his circle(s) what their top three most-played software titles were. Immediately inspired, I decided to do the same for the members, fans and friends of myself and the Nintendo Nerds community. I wanted to collect more data, accounting for the top ten titles, in an effort to gain a better understanding of how everyone utilizes their 3DS.

Below is a list of twelve (random) Nintendo Nerds community members/ personal Google+ friends, along with their top ten most-played software titles to include total time played (in hours). Keep in mind that the data below was provided to me on September 4th, directly from the software ranking results from their 3DS systems. I believe you will find that the results are quite shocking. I was personally surprised to see how many DS games made the top ten. Without further ado, here are the results, in no particular order.

I appreciate everyone's participation for this. It was very interesting to see how everyone made use of their 3DS systems. I'm even more interested and curoius to know how all of this data will look in one to two years from now. Thanks again, everyone! It was fun doing this and I plan on doing more fun things like this in the future.

Great job Kevin! I was looking forward to seeing the numbers. Very impressive totals for some users.
This is awesome. It is nice to see what people are using their 3DS for. I love how one person has spent so much time using the internet browser. Lol.
