    August Hype Game - RESULTS!

    Alright, for its first month back, the hype game managed a solid 33 votes. It's not going to break any records, but considering some people may have been either sceptical or unaware of this returning - I'll chalk it up as a success. I'm willing to keep these going, so spread the word, take part and enjoy. Big thanks to all who participated, much appreciated!

    The most hyped game for August was Fallout: New Vegas, which only just edged 2nd place holder, Gran Turismo 5, by 1 point. Halo: Reach was a close 3rd, which interestingly enough had the highest average of votes/voters. As the months progress, I'll start including comparison graphs of popular games and trends, demonstrating the rise (or fall) of particular titles.

    Now, onto the graphs!



    As you can see, the above graph shows every game that received a vote. What I found interesting was the fact that Resistance 3 received more votes than Killzone 3, despite the latter having a close, confirmed release date. Guess the excitement from the R3 Gamescom announcement is still lingering around.



    The next graph shows the Top 20 standings with the total number of voters overlaid onto it. The standout observation is that even with half as many voters, Halo: Reach was still able to give FNV and GT5 a run for their money. Same could be said for Kingdom Hearts: BbS, it had only 2 voters but beat out games that received triple the attention.



    Lastly, the trusty pie chart, which basically shows the hyped games as a percentage of the total votes cast. While there isn't a dominating game this month, I expect that to change once big name exclusives draw nearer.

    Oh, and for the graph-impaired:


    Is there anything else noteworthy about the above information? If anyone has any comments, suggestions, ideas feel free to post away.

    Cheers!

    Versus is way too far away to get hyped about imo. Don't get me wrong though, I am looking forward to it still.

    Bit late to the party aren't we?

    The new one will be up later on in the month (about the 20th), which should be interesting as thats just after TGS.
