D&D 5e Most Played Game on Roll20 for the Last Quarter
I like that Roll20 makes it's stats public on a quarterly basis. There really is a small mountain of date for those that want to drill through such.
I get quarterly updates on those stats from the Orr Group, the parent company of Roll20 (the big daddy of virtual table tops, or VTTs.)
The most interesting thing to note from the latest update, from my perspective at least (and I guess the folks behind Roll20, as they made a specific mention of it in the email) is that Dungeons & Dragons 5e is the most played RPG on Roll20. Doesn't matter whether you use the yardstick of games played or players self identifying- 5e is number 1 in each case.
The percentage of players identifying with a certain system is actually greater than 100%, as they may identify with more than one system in the time the data was captured.
Less shiny snapshot with more detail:
