    Awesome list!!! Why is Saints Row The Third listed twice as #12 and #13?

    • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

      Oops. Fixed!

      • http://twitter.com/turningtodusk Austin

        Haha no worries Larry! Good to see GTA IV on there though now :)

      It’s sad, but Halo may never be #1 again

        It’s not sad, it’s awesome. Call of Duty pwns Halo.

            Oh–i get it– Everyone who enjoys the COD franchise is a child! Now that’s clever, right there.

    • Anonymous

      Exactly, 343i will bring Halo back to it’s former glory and all gamers worthy of the name will return to Halo 4. ;)
      While CoD will still be present and a great options for casuals and younger players who lack the skill to play a game like HAlo, where camping is not the only decent tactic and perks won’t save you :P

    Not surprised FIFA 12 is 3rd… after all the hacked accounts… smh… When will this get dealt with?

  • Joe Popp

    I think you mean Forza 4 (not 3), and it’s a shame it’s down that far on the list.  Maybe it’s all of the server trouble they’ve had?

    • Anonymous

      Server trouble, no drop in game types, “meh” DLC… there’s only so many times I can race a certain track before I get bored.  It doesn’t help that a lot of people race like idiots and smash into you every chance they get.

    • Anonymous

      Remember, the list isn’t about who is playing multiplayer the most–it measures the amount of people playing games *while signed into XBox Live* – this includes single player portions of each game (That’s why games like Skyrim are on the list). My point is that, sadly, I have tot think people are just not playing Forza 4 as much as they did — multiplayer or not.

  • Anonymous

    I’m almost ashamed to see Battlefield 3 so low on this list. I suppose it doesn’t help that I too have been playing MW3…but then I’d still been playing BF3 as well so I guess it balances out.

  • Anonymous

    Whoo hoo! Yes! Call of Duty is undefeated for over 2 years! How do you like that, Nawlins08 and Searing Wave? I was right and you weren’t. Whose stupid now?

    • http://twitter.com/TheKrazyCookie Aaron

      Quality over quantity…. You’re the one stupid for being a CoD fanboy…

      • Anonymous

        He may be a fanboy, but calling someone stupid for loving a game is about as ridiculous.

    I doubt Halo will ever be #1 again. Who wants to play a game where you watch other guys jumping around, galloping side to side, and t bagging dead bodies?

    • Jakob Kettler

      Fanboy alert!

    • Anonymous

      Who wants to play a game where you watch other players prone on the ground, not moving side to side, and not going anywhere near the enemy out of fear of losing their 4 killstreak?

      • Anonymous

        Actually, who wants to see either of your scenarios?

  • http://twitter.com/davidkenobi davidkenobi

    #13 Forza Motorsport 3 …. ??? That’s a surprise ^^  

    • Anonymous

      It links to Forza 4 so I’m guessing that’s what it actually means.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_RL4W6IDNLLY4AIRBU6ZRRQTMTE Steve

    Major, #13 is still showing Forza 3, think it should be Forza 4 as the hyperlink goes to Forza 4.

  • Robert M

    These lists never cease to entertain me.

    A question just popped into my head: any reason this list can’t be displayed in the dashboard?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Marcos-Carvalhedo-de-Campos/100000468554268 Marcos Carvalhedo de Campos

    i think it’s awesome that cod is so popular, i mean, less kids casuals and noobs at GOW3 and halo, so i keep playing the games that i like without the lame players of the past

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/James-Terrez/100001329706208 James Terrez

      other way around lol

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_T7LOQAEEWPFE7UBMQGVCTNELQI huck

        i know u r, but what am i?

    • Anonymous

      LOL… ridiculous comment is ridiculous.

    I can’t help but wonder if this new Dashboard is effecting sales — I know that I browse through the new release a lot less than I use to.

    It use to be simple and I would look forward to checking the new releases everyday.  One click and a few pushes of the thumb-stick and I could see everything.  Now it’s just a pain in the ass. I have to click, go  back, click go back and it takes longer. I think I have check the new releases 2 or 3 times since the new dashboard came out and I dread having to do it again.

    • http://twitter.com/GreenMistt Miller

      Same here, i rarely ever browse through the marketplace anymore. Now, if i ever do go on the dashboard, it’s only to remain in party chat when i’m not doing anything.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_T7LOQAEEWPFE7UBMQGVCTNELQI huck

       yer its kinda sad that its easier to sign in on my phone or computer to browse xboxlive content…
      if it wasnt for the guide button i think they would have alot more angry gamers…

    Amy cracked the Top Ten most downloaded XBLA games, huh? I know it’s new, but that still surprised me a tad.

  • http://twitter.com/HTLoneWolf HTLoneWolf

    Halo: 3 still in the top 20 4 years after launch.

    <3 Halo: 3.

  • b knight

    FIFA is played to hack/steal from XBL members!

  • Anonymous

    No Bad Company 2………

  • buried_horizon

    Dungeon Defenders is first? Well, grats for them I guess. They just announced that apart from the 4-part DLCs we won’t be getting any of the content the PC version has, so no point in playing it anymore. I wonder what is to blame for this stupid crap… *patching process* *cough cough*

    • Timothy Simon

      Looks like they no longer see XBLA as fiscally viable for their company, shifting all development to the PC and leaving us in the cold.  Wouldn’t be so bad if the game was named Dungeon Defenders Lite because we sure aren’t getting the same game anymore. I hope the next time Trendy Entertainment tries to sell a game on XBLA Microsoft brings down the hammer on them and denies them sales on this non-viable revenue stream.

  • http://profiles.google.com/harrypottersdaddy Harry Potter

    Where is World at War? We need gamers to get back on that game and help Activision dominate this list. Oh yeah, good to see Amy in the top ten for XBLA

  • http://twitter.com/TapouTime Jason Block/Jayrock

    Shit over half those games i own!

  • http://twitter.com/jamescannon24 James

    Is anybody here having problems with NBA jam.Because alot of people being complaining about it freezing,but EA wont take the initiative to fix it :(

  • https://twitter.com/#!/BeeDizz BeeDizz

    Only 2 games I play regularly are on the list. Excellent.

  • http://twitter.com/myPARspective P.RicoeurPhilosopher

    Typo. Forza 4 not 3 (Even link leads to an Amazon listing of 4)

  • Anonymous

    What about all the stolen accounts? Until when it will happen?
    Mine was not, but I know lots of cases…

    Where is the Windows phone list? =(

  • warlord_killer74

    Forza 3? Really Major? First party title and you don’t even know what the latest iteration is…

    • Michael Selby

      It could be Forza 3. Black OPS and Modern Warfare are still going strong even after a newer release of the game came out. Might be the same for Forza.

  • Michael Selby

    I am stoked to see Skyrim at #3 three. It is the best game I have ever played!

  • Anonymous

    AMMY is one of the most horrible games I have played!! :s

  • http://twitter.com/Byyys Byyys

    Can’t wait for the day Battlefield 3 beats COD on this list, but as this is fixed. it may never happen.

  • http://twitter.com/Eddy23 Eddy23

    I was not even aware of this fifa 12 fraud till reading the comments on this site. I then just realized my roommate had been hacked. M$ do something about this sh*t.

  • http://www.facebook.com/original.mikee Original MikeE

    Will the independent games be soon available for Switzerland ???
