So, a year and a bit later. I'll stick with stuff over 100 hours.
1. The Elder Scrolls Online - 1233 hrs on record
Still a lot of hours in there but I've been slowing down recently. I'm not playing anywhere near as much as I was, but it's still getting a few hours added to it each week at least, if only from streams.
2. PAYDAY 2 - 319 hrs on record
Managed to claw it's up one place with minimum of time played this year.
3. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 313 hrs on record
Like I said previously, it's never going to get played again. The other version is more stable for modding.
4. Euro Truck Simulator 2 279 hrs on record
Yeah, I played this a fucking lot this year. Got all the achievements aside from the exploring and driving down all roads. Maybe when there's a reason to play it I'll add more hours.
5. Rocket League 274 hrs on record
And I'm still shit at it. FML.
6. Deep Rock Galactic 266 hrs on record
I really like this game, and they keep adding stuff to it in dribs and drabs that keeps me returning. Expect those hours to grow.
7. Borderlands 2 221 hrs on record
Yep, I've gone back into the Borderlands to accompany some friends I enjoy playing with. I have no idea how long we'll be at it, but expect more hours next update.
8. Snowrunner 176 hrs on record
I really adore this game. It's not for everyone and the games pace is glacial, but it's an ideal podcasting game and an even better co-op game when you're all stuck in mud and trying to figure out how to unfuck your night with the precious resources you have left open.
9. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition 168 hrs on record
That'll be the traditional December play though effect. I did play fewer hours than I normally do though, mainly because work was busy and also I was doing more community stuff with my discord that stopped the hours racking up here.
10. Fallout 4 136 hrs on record
No change here. It's only a matter of time before it wins a stream vote and I end up going for another tour through the Commonwealth.
11. Pinball FX 3 120 hrs on record
Another no change. Fallen a bit out of love with pinball recently, I think them sort of abandoning it for the next game and messing about with support for FX3 smothered my enthusiasm for it.
12. Mudrunner 119 hrs on record
The forerunner to Snowrunner. Basic, but perfect in it's own little way.
13. Stardew Valley 115 hrs on record
No change for the farming sim, but again it's only a matter of time before hours are piled on. Will they be before the next big update? Who knows.
As for games that are up and coming that could break the century. Well some nearly managed it this year, stuff like Two Point Hospital and Dungeon Defenders came super close, but there's always games like Left 4 Dead 2 that get played sporadically that see them claw up the list bit by bit without anyone noticing. Outside of this I really don't know what could go all out, but given that games like Euro Truck and Snowrunner can enter from nowhere at all, really anything can happen.
