Raptr has just posted its Most Played PC Games for July 2014, and from the looks of it, things only get better for the best of the best. Playtime for the top four games has increased 30 percent overall.

League of Legends got a boost from its Doom Bots of Doom enhancement that increased the AI difficulty to an uncomfortably high level.

DOTA 2’s The International Tournament brought up attention and participation, particularly in mid-July.

Approaching its 10-year anniversary, World of Warcraft even garnered enough playtime to occupy 6.65 percent of the list’s Share, a 0.52 percent increase in Share compared to June ("Share" represents gameplay time as a percentage of the total time spent on all the PC games played by Raptr members).

The last of the Big Four, Counterstrike: Global Offensive, introduced the Operation Breakout DLC, pushing for a 65.19 percent increase in playtime.

Smite rose the furthest up the chart with the help of Raptr’s Rewards Store, climbing 14 spots to #10. Other significant increases – 5 spots or more – included Final Fantasy XIV Online, Payday 2, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Still somewhat young in their releases, WildStar and Watch Dogs dropped several spots. WildStar (released June 3) fell seven spots and dropped 45.63 percent in gameplay, while Watch Dogs (released May 27) plummeted 25 spots to #33 with a 67.72 gameplay drop.

The newly released Divinity: Original Sin may debut on the top-20 list next month, as it has already reached #25.

Gameplay among Raptr members also jumped up significantly; they logged 15 percent more gameplay than in June -- a 30% increase.

You can compare this month to last month’s survey here.

As for games to watch out for in August, I’m thinking Dark Souls II may end up back on the top-20. It releases its Crown of the Old Iron King DLC on Tuesday, August 26. Which games in August are you looking forward to most?
