Video game rental subscription service GameFly Inc. started 2012 by wrapping up the previous 12 months of members’ activity into top ten lists of the titles most popular with gamers.
The data was gathered from members’ GameQs, their personal lists of the games they’d most like to play after returning the ones currently on loan to them, which subscribers maintain on the GameFly website or its mobile app.
Top of the lists, unsurprisingly, are the same action adventure and shooter games that other gamers purchased for $35-$50 each: Batman: Arkham City, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Dead Island. Four of GameFly’s lists are posted below.
“In 2011, game developers continued to push the limits of gaming technology and creativity. These Top 10 lists demonstrate the cream of the crop based on GameFly members’ diverse demand for their favorite titles regardless of genre or platform” said Sean Spector, GameFly co-founder and senior vice president of Business Development and Content.
GameFly also sells new and used video games. Additionally, it recently acquired Direct2Drive.com, a pioneering online retailer for downloading Windows and Mac video games, which is in the process of being integrated.
