Conduit 2 has the most dedicated fans among Wii games (according to numbers)

We're all familiar with the list of top Wii message boards. Let me introduce you to my version of the top five. First, I look at the number of pages of topics (10 topics per page for me) on the message board. I divide that by the number of months the game has been out.* Finally, I develop a ratio of copies sold to pages of message board topics per month.

Using that process, the top five Wii message boards on GameFAQs should be ordered:

Conduit 2 -- 1:0.001
Goldeneye 007 -- 1:0.000089
Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword -- 1:0.000088
Super Smash Bros. Brawl -- 1:0.000038
Mario Kart Wii -- 1:0.000003

As we can see, each copy of Conduit 2 sold correlates to much more message board activity on GameFAQs than does a copy sold of Goldeneye or Super Smash Bros.

Limitations

The number of topics is constantly changing; these figures were gathered on GameFAQs between 7:20 and 7:40 PM EST on Dec. 31, 2012.

There is no obvious way to count the total number of posts, and as such, it is possible that some boards are underrepresented due to a greater number of posts across fewer topics. We have no reason to believe, however, that this possibility had a statistically significant impact on the outcome.

*Global sales figures were used, but the release dates varied based on region. Since this is a North American site and message board, the NA release dates were used in calculated the number of months since launch.

Yes, there is. Your lack of knowledge doesn't give you the right to present a false statement.

With that out of the way: (topics/posts)
Conduit 2- 12487 /176688
Goldeneye 007- 39966 / 538061
Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword- 40922 / 682254
Super Smash Bros Brawl- 252951 / 3255580
Mario Kart Wii- 50439 / 631358

Cool, get on that and factor in the copies sold. We won't factor in resales unless there is a way to decypher that stat amongst 2nd hand owners.

All that not withstanding, if the variable is removed acrossed the board I doubt c2 has any advantage compared to the other titles, as it has less copies to introduce into a secondary market anyway. if anything I'd suspect it would be flawed in an unfair fashion toward the C2 number.

Be fun to see where this goes. See how your New Years turns out when your a parent and stay home, lol.

My mistake. I didn't see post or topic totals, so it wasn't obvious to me. Using your numbers for post totals, instead of pages of topics:

Sales:Posts per month

Conduit 2 -- 1:0.147
Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword -- 1:0.0147
Goldeneye 007 -- 1:0.012
Super Smash Bros. Brawl -- 1:0.0049
Mario Kart Wii -- 1:0.0003

Per copy sold, there are ten times as many posts per month as the next closest game (Zelda). There are twelve times as many as Goldeneye.

Don't they have a site dedicated counting the number of hours people have played the game online?

Cafe something or other
