    Wow… Gears of war 2 has disappeared O_O

  • A Place for Us

    Not sure if 1 vs 100 is popular enough but would that fall under an arcade title now (since it has 200 points).

  • A Place for Us

    Maybe not, just noticed in the first list. :P

  • Mcmax3000

    Glad to see 1 vs 100 on the list. Love playing that with a group of friends.

  • Mcmax3000

    1 vs 100 wouldn’t fall under the XBLA list because that’s based on copies purchased and it’s a free game.

  • goobot

    halo 3 is coming back

    also can you any time soon post #?S

  • AnEternalEnigma

    Guess patch #5 and permanent double XP wasn’t enough to keep people.

  • MuckRak3r

    Bye Gears 2. And don’t come back until you’re no longer broken. So in other words, don’t come back until you have dedicated servers, proper hit detection, and the like.

    I am so happy to see Gears off this list. SCREW YOU EPIC. You think we are going to keep sticking around through all the crap? Nope.

  • cliftonJONES

    nice to see halo 3 is back as number 2…i also see that that episode disc for gta 4 has put it on the charts…

  • AOClaus

    @MuckRak3r

    The first Gears didn’t have dedicated servers either, it had player hosted servers with a server list…

  • drudaddy

    @cliftonJONES, GTA4 always been in the top 10 charts since it’s release, but anyways nice to see Assassin’s Creed II (Game of the Year) IMO.

  • DonnyJN

    Wow. I though I’d never see the day GoW is off the Top 10. What a shame.

  • TBizzle4Shizzle

    I really don’t care what order everything is in, I just think we need a top 15 or 20. Seriously. 3 out of 10 are Call of Duty. Halo and GTA are never going away. That leaves half the spots for the rest of the gaming world. Not fair.

  • Searing Wave

    Extremely surprised to see Gears of War 2 drop off of the list. Expected it to drop a few places, but to be completely eliminated from the top ten is jarring. It’s got a lot of things wrong with it, but I will continue to play it on occasion in order to reach rank 100. Won’t touch it very often after that, though.

    Modern Warfare 2 I’ve grown more fond of since its release, at which point I wasn’t enjoying it much at all. However, it still disappoints me quite a bit overall. I expect Call of Duty 4 to fall faster than World at War, but both will be off the list by the end of the year. Not sure how long Modern Warfare 2 will hold the number 1 spot, but I don’t predict it staving off Halo 3 beyond early Spring.

  • R2K SpitFire

    This just goes to show how much people are tired of the bs in gears 2. I played 2 nights ago for the first time in over a month and I loved it. So I played again last night only to absolutely hate the game because of two laggy matches and one of them the host thought he was badass and was showboating. That’s the kind off stuff that pisses me off the most. So you have a bad connection, no need to think your “all that” because others are suffering from it. So with that said gears 2 will remain out of my disk drive for at least another month… maybe..

  • Daphoid

    Peggle is up there because of the deal of the week. Which I will admit to falling for. It’s a good game, a good few hours of fun when bored of other games – 400 points was the sinker though :)

    Still haven’t tried 1 v 100, too busy with ACII

    - D

  • metallicorphan

    good to see the Star Wars Battlefield games still doing well,hopefully the 12th of December will give us some good news

  • CaptainCaterpie

    The new look Top 10 thanks to MW2, ACII and L4D2. Top 3′s going to look the same until Halo: Reach (you heard it here first), and I expect WaW to drop further.

    And goodbye GoW2. Multiplayer was pretty horrible.

    COD Classic to break Top 10 most played.

    TOP 20 PLEASE.

  • Jax Demon

    Glad Gears 2 has dropped out. Does not deserve to be in the top 10. I think we people who like Gears should pop in Gears 1 and bump it back up.

  • oO MG81 Oo

    I’m also glad to see the back of Gear2 from the top ten. Epic royally screwed up with Gears of War’s MP in that game. Hopefully the 3rd one will be like the first and actually fun to play. Kick in the balls for Epic. They should listen to what the fans want next time.

  • twisted poke

    I find it interesting that Death Tank didn’t chart despite being deal of the week. Almost every arcade game in the program has charted the next week I believe.

  • Thiago123

    Wow at Gears coming off the list. Still play the single player or co-op on a rare occasion, but the multi is still blah so people are catching on…or maybe its all the triple-A titles out.
    But the real surprise to me is still seeing COD 4 in the top 3 and even above WaW when the sequel is out and everyone on the planet is playing it.
    Oh, and the new 1v100 is a home run with all the improvements made.

  • II W4RLORD II

    Modern Warfare 2 should be the new “standard” for shooters. Too bad third person shooters like gears 2 just couldn’t hold true like the first person shooters. I mean who wants to take a break from an awesome game like MW2 to play a game that has shat on people since it came out like Gears of War 2? Not me, i’d rather throw in some halo3, a company that tries to take care of it’s fans unlike the Gears company. At least a person will get shat on less if they play halo3, unlike gears2 , where a person never knows what the next match brings in terms of cheating or lags. All of those details should have been worked out before gears 2 was ever released in the first place.

  • rawkerdude5012

    Glad to see L4D2 on their. I guess that boycott didn’t last long. It’s such a good game. Good work Valve.

  • ROBBMAC

    What happened to the numbers from the week before? Also a top 20 list would be nice just so we could see what’s NOT a shooter.

  • dipsetboy17

    modern warfare 2 is still on top. i hope it stays that way for a very long time.

  • Boe2

    meh, too many shooters, meh, boring :|

    Peggle suddenly appearing in the list, now there is a surprise. Though I must admit I also bought it with the deal of the week. I’m not too enthousiastic about Peggle, but it’s a fun distraction if you got 5 spare minutes and nothing better to do.

    Trials HD and Castle Crashers? They will stay there for a LONG time. It wouldn’t surprise me if Trials HD were back on top next week :)

  • N0RDS

    Im surprise to not seeing BORDERLAND on this chart

  • II W4RLORD II

    If you want an arcade game that has some meat to it and is not a shooter, go with Puzzle Quest. That is by far the best arcade game I have played on here. I got it back on a deal of the week. I have got my money out of that dude many times over. If you skipped on that deal of the week, shame on you.

  • BHZ anakinjmt

    Not sure what I’m surprised at more: Gears not being on the list, or CoD4 still in the top 3. I really thought CoD4 would have dropped once MW2 came out. Maybe there’s more people out there than I thought that want party chat.

  • HazyCloud

    “Bye Gears 2. And don’t come back until you’re no longer broken. So in other words, don’t come back until you have dedicated servers, proper hit detection, and the like.

    And then I look at your Gamercard….

    “Last seen 5 hours ago playing Gow2″

    That’s damn funny.

    I think we can safely say we expected MW2 to be at the top.

  • II W4RLORD II

    It seems Gears 2 does bring on that “love, hate” relationship. It will probably be back soon even though many people got screwed over more than once from that game. As disgusted as I am about Gears 2 from when it was released “sorry, I don’t forgive that easy,” I can imagine that I will still buy Gears of War 3 when it comes out.

  • KP ScuzzyBunny

    I love the “all shooters” comments…there are 40 games listed, and MAYBE 18 of them are “shooters” depending on how loosely you define the genre). 6/10 for 360 is most, not “all”. I do agree we need to just kill the original Xbox top ten and get a top 20 for 360…even OXM ditched original Xbox, get with the times Major!

  • TANK 2old2play

    Kind of shocked to see Gears 2 go from like #5 to off the list. As much of a gear head I was for gears 1, i hated gears 2 and given that it rarely cracked the top 4 spots on the live charts unlike gears 1, i guess many others felt the same way. I’m not even really sure Gears 3 is on my must buy list for next winter with how much of a disappointment gears 2 was. With on dedicated server hosting option , their code isn’t good enough to deal with lag and what not. Seems to me that it would be ‘easy’ to build in a dedicated host option into the game so people could set their boxes up to host if Epic didn’t want to spend the money on a server farm. Anyway if ’3′ doesn’t have dedicated hosting, i probably won’t even buy it.

  • Exu

    Maybe if Gears 2 wasn’t still broken after five title updates and over a year since launch then more people would be playing it.
    Hey cool, UNO’s going strong.

  • trickybuz93

    Glad to see Assassin’s Creed II, 1 vs 100 and FIFA 10 on that list. Also glad that Halo 3′s making a come back!

  • Matu Flp Krawfe

    Well it’s kind of a shame that Gears 2 dropped out, but then again you can’t measure the quality of a game just by how popular it is at the moment so there really isn’t anything significant to be said about the event.

    And as others have been/are saying, a regular top 20 of live would be welcome sight to the Major Nelson blog.

  • D4rth T Man7iz

    Interesting Top 10…Wat to go MW 2 and Halo 3 even after 2 years after launch.

    Great job Bungie ;-)

  • aStrangeDisease

    Where is Borderlands? Probably #11 or 12. I’d like to see top 15 or 20.

  • Monhegan

    Top 20 please, for all catagories.

  • Gonzo345

    The Gears2 problem is the lag, that’s easy.

  • Fox Hound JD

    Its good to see Gears 2 off the list, I got tired of the “don’t fix it, throw achievements at it” mantra of epic. Also I agree with whoever said they’d like to see the top 20 instead of just 10.

  • wolfzero01

    maybe with Gears 2 dropping off the list, Epic will make sure that Gears 3 isn’t as screwed up as 2 was. too bad Borderlands isn’t in the top 10, its an blast to play (although I’ve been playing Dragon Age & AC 2 a lot lately)
