SKYRIM Most Played Game of the Year

While Modern Warfare 3 had more cumulative hours, Skyrim had a better "average session length and average play time per person".

In a report by Raptr, Skyrim was the most played game of the year and by far the most played RPG of 2011 as well. Raptr's statistics were broken into two categories, 'total play time' and 'average session length'; and while Modern Warfare 3 had more cumulative hours, Skyrim had a better "average session length and average play time per person with 2.92 hours and 23 hours respectively." Modern Warfare 3 was the most played shooter by a wide margin over Gears of War 3 and in its first month doubled the amount of playtime Battlefield 3 had in its opening month. Some other highlights were Batman: Arkham City as the most played open world game this year, while LA Noire was the most played new IP. I am having a little bit of a problem with Arkham City being the most played open world game considering Skyrim is also an open world game; I don't know maybe they put Skyrim in the RPG category and not the open world one. What is the game you spent the most time playing this year?
