More On: Raptr League of Legends Grand Theft Auto V Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Terraria Path of Exile Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

I'll give you three guesses for the most played new game of the year - and the first two don't count.  If you can't guess, then turn in your Gamer card.  

Of course it's Grand Theft Auto V.  Of course it is.

The other notable winners might be a tad more surprising: 

The most played DLC or expansion is goes to the Terraria 1.2 free content update.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag won the No Bathroom Break award with an average uninterrupted game time of 3.14 hours.  That's interesting to me because my experience with AC: III boiled down to taking a million little breaks just to avoid destroying my gaming space out of sheer frustration.  So good for Black Flag for maybe halting that trend.

Most played new IP was Path of Exile.

Most played PC title was League of Legends.

Finally, the most played Xbox 360 title was Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
