    GTA IV is doing bloody well and good for them, such an awesome game, can’t wait for V.

    • fsdfg dsfds

       Yeha IV has been in top 10 pretty much since it release :) V is going to be GOTY no doubt

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CMAVF75KRFIEKVGUOBXYFD64NA Bama

    Nice showing battlefield 3 want be long before 4yr old Modern Warfare 2 jumps it.

    Stopped playing Skyrim months ago due to the lag and patch 1.4 did f’all , gone onto BF3 now. I dream of a day when the COD cash cow isn’t top.

    Don’t doubt the power of FIFA well until FIFA Street comes out and we all play that instead.

    Interesting to see Battlefield 3 waning.  Likely due to the rampant cheating/boosting going on.

    Major–any information on HBO To Go app for the XBox?  

    • Anonymous

      Well thats the case with any multiplayer game. EA simply made the mistake of rushing BF3 to compete with MW3, which bulldozed through them anyway. If Bf3 stats is correct, the games pop is currently fluctuating between only 20,000-100,000 people, which I would consider very bad.

    • Anonymous

      Cheating and boosting? What cheating? (I’ve only had the game since x-mas so I might not be aware of everything going on in BF3.)

  • http://twitter.com/TrashMKX Chris

    AoE Online & Pinball FX2 are both free, so they shouldn’t be included in the list if Aegis Wing isn’t included anymore.

    • Anonymous

      I think that’s what that “(Full Versions purchased)” disclaimer is for.

      • http://twitter.com/TrashMKX Chris

        Full Versions purchases means it does not include any downloaded trials.

    • Anonymous

       For the free games like that, the purchases are based on purchases of the add-ons (same with Family Game Night).

      Nothing wrong with AoE Online being on the GFWL list though because that’s based on users playing, not sales.

  • http://twitter.com/HTLoneWolf HTLoneWolf

    Fifa #3? Only because of all the scamming that’s going on. Good to see Halo: 3 still in the top 20.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Draken-Stark/100000536835628 Draken Stark

    I’d love to get into halo 3 again after playing reach for so long. Is there any sort of usage chart for what times people are playing at the most?

    • fsdfg dsfds

       So would i, theres alot of people from NZ and AU who cant even play ANY Halo games now, since 343 took over there matchmaking doesnt work with certain Internet providers apparently due to some IP address problems, Still hasnt been fixed or even answered , I dont even want to buy Anniversary  because i wont be able to play coop, I think it will still be the same when halo 4 comes out, 343 are a joke

    • ryder4life22187

       i just got into halo 3′s multiplayer a little late to the party but i never have a problem finding full matches last time i played was around 4pm arizona time and it had 6,000+ ppl on and before that i was playing about 12am and it had 22,000+ dont know if that helps

    Major Nelson, when is Microsoft going to patch the BUG introduced in some recent update which causes the DVDROM to spin loudly while playing games off HDD? 

    For example, in Soul Calibur 5 it spins *loudly* at the main menu until you pick a game mode then it instantly stops.  But if you return to the main menu it spins up and will never spin down again.  I hear reports of other games doing this as well.

    This INTOLERABLE NEW BUG needs to be fixed ASAP or many of us are going to switch to the PS3 version of games just to have a playable experience.

      Yup Been complaining at the Xbox forums only to get answered by some fanboy with “it stops after like 2 mins”  NO IT DOES NOT

      • http://twitter.com/williamronholm Anonymous

        I must be lucky it stops either after a few minutes at the menu or as soon as the first loading screen starts.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Stephan-Tenspel/578534292 Stephan Tenspel

         It stops for me after a few minutes .

    • Anonymous

      It happens with Sonic Generations as well.

  • http://twitter.com/boeboelord Boe2

    FIFA still #3? You’d expect a drop after a gazillion scammers being banned (tells a lot about the kind of audience that plays fifa)

  • Andy Sweet

    I am here to ask Major Nelson to help fix the BUG introduced with the new disc security
    which causes the DVDROM to spin loudly while playing games off HDD  CONSTANTLY in Soul Calibur 5 and MANY more games  you are ruining my XBOX

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Stephan-Tenspel/578534292 Stephan Tenspel

       This is not a bug but its a new thing, after a few minutes the disc will not spin anymore.

      • Anonymous

        You are not correct.  It will spin forever at the SC5 main menu VERY LOUDLY.

        On some xbox360′s it will spin down when you leave the main menu, but when you return to the main menu it spins back up and then will never spin back down no matter what you do.  THIS IS A BUG.  Microsoft needs to fix this or we will all move to the PS3 version just so it is playable without a weed-whacker in the background.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Stephan-Tenspel/578534292 Stephan Tenspel

           This is not the problem of Microsoft but the problem of the developer .

  • Ewan Stewart

    I’m delighted that since its release 4 years ago, GTAIV is still doing tremendously well. I still join full games and I don’t see it dying down until GTAV.

    It’ll also be exciting to see Modern Warfare 3 lose its #1 spot from GTAV. Rockstar is truly the best games developer of all time, and they deserve all the critical acclaim they receive.

       I reckon much, top game for PC too…

  • Anonymous

    Not surprisingly got bored of Mw3 very quickly, don’t know how people can buy the same game from the same time period repeatedley.  Surprised how much better I liked black ops over it though tired of both and any call of duty game for that matter.  When you play a game like bastion or something creative you realize the incredible lack of care and depth in these and a lot of other games.

    On another note it would be interesting to see the actual numbers of how many users for each game there are in the top 20 as an indication of how large the community is for each game.  Whadda ya think? ;)

  • http://twitter.com/JosielMedeiros Josiel Lima

    Gears 3 deserves the drop position. Blame the DLC, Fenix​​, which limit the gaming experience. Now we are punished for notconsuming DLC.
    Would buy the BF 3, but quit because of the security flaws of theEA.

    Why is Halo Reach so below all of the rest??? It’s much better than FIFA 12 and CoD

    • Anonymous

      Bill Parcells once said: “you are what your record says you are.” Do a search and see why many faithful Halo players gave up Reach a year ago. You will become familiar with terms such as bloom, armor lock, grey Forge maps, no 1-50. You might be right that Halo as a franchise deserves to be higher on the list, but Halo Reach is where it belongs.

      • Tom Brazier

        Bloom didn’t ruin Halo, people just refused to adjust. A game series is meant to change from game to game, otherwise it becomes stagnant.. like CoD.

        • Anonymous

          Players moved on because the changes just weren’t fun.

  • http://www.myspace.com/576933061 Fred

    More Call of Duty…   every month it seems like the same titles are in the top 10. 
    Glad to see something a couple original titles in the Arcade section at least.
