PlayerUnknown definitely had an idea and has refined it through his projects to the point where it's caught on like wildfire. Kudos to him.

Congrats to them. I'm looking forward to jumping in, I'll bite when I can find it for around £15.

" Classic “core gamers” — the ones that play most major hits or jump from indie game to indie game — are relatively rare when compared to overall gaming audience.

In fact, 1% of Steam gamers own 33% of all copies of games on Steam. 20% of Steam gamers own 88% of games. That’s even more than Pareto principle suggests.

So, to be a member of the “1% group” of Steam gamers you have to own 107 games or more. That’s not much considering how Steam is selling games at discount prices and how easy it is to obtain games in bundles.

We’re talking about 1.3M PC gamers that could fall into definition of “core gamer that buys several games per year”. And that’s including discounted games as well.

Of course we could extend it to, I don’t know, “softcore gamers” — the 20% that own 88% games. To be included you’d have to own 4 (FOUR) games or more on Steam — not exactly a huge number, right?

Let me repeat it once more, because it’s really important.

Various studies suggest that there are 700–800 million of PC gamers. It’s probably true, but it doesn’t mean much for your game. Because if you’re developing a downloadable game for Steam you’re not even fighting for 135M of its active users,

you’re fighting for the attention of 1.3 million gamers
that are actually buying lots of games.

Nope, but I don't think I have to in order bet on this one. And honestly, you don't have to play every game to be able to tell which one will actually have an impact on the industry.

What a crazy situation to be in. By all accounts, people are throwing hours and hours into this game and the player base reflects that...

... why would people be surprised that a game that a lot of people are enjoying spending a lot of time with is GOTY fodder? Is it a games as art thing or something? Don't we play to have fun?

It's because Gaf will have a meltdown if their single player GENERATION DEFINING AAA titles like Zelda and Persona 5 are toppled so easily by a $30 indie multiplayer shooter.

This is absolutely bananas.

The growth of this game is phenomenal and there is no sign of slowing down.

I don't know if this has already been posted but here is a comparison of playerbase growth between PUBG and Minecraft.

I'm honestly kind of upset that a Souls or (proper) Naughty Dog game didn't come out this year.

Could you imagine if this beat Bloodborne 2 or The Last of Us 2? The forum would just explode. There would be actual fatalities.

For what it's worth, it'll probably win GOTY on gaf. NintendoGAF will be split between Zelda and Mario. PlaystationGAF will be split between Horizon, Nier, Persona, and Uncharted. XboxGaf and PCgaf will choose PUBG.

What is it with people deriving enjoyment out of some speculative reaction to the speculative perceived slight of their current favorite game winning a press award. Then again, sitting in the plane with those people and having voice chat turned on it doesn't seem all that weird.

Does this beat Call of Duty MW2/BO1 around Christmas time in 2009/2010 (for most people concurrently online in a game)? I recall seeing 1m+ online concurrently, but I'm not sure if this was combined between PS3/360. It might well have been 2m+ between the two.

PC- and XboxGaf is just not big enough
and you know GAF GOTY is points based?

so NintendoGaf will vote Zelda and Mario either #1 and #2

Uncharted was a 2016 game
it's Horizon and Persona for SonyGaf. Nier is likely lower

I'm looking forward to "Video games: The Website" giving PUBG GOTY in 2017. Since we know, only one website gives out GOTY.

The game has sold 10million copies in the 9th month of the year. It's hardly a coup. A coup would be if it dropped in October and the hype took it to victory because of it being fresh and new. It's been around long enough to prove its point and still be taken seriously.

There is 2 distinct modes for the game FPP which is first person and just third person which lets you switch between both.
