Top LIVE By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

    Never played any of the mass effect games but really addicted to the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer. May get the actual game later.  Is MW3 really that fun?  I liked Black ops for a while and World at war before that but the modern warfare games feel so generic and soulless.  If you’re going to make an incredibly outlandish unrealistic first person shooter why make it take itself so seriously? 

    • Anonymous

       I happen to favor historical shooters over “modern” ones, as well. I think that “soulless” feeling may stem in part from the fact that most “modern” warfare games employ fictional conflicts, whereas historical shooters are based on dramatic military events… As such, I find the (albeit short) single player stories of Treyarch’s games to be much more engaging.

    Ha, Halo 3 is still on top 20, now that’s impressive :)

    • http://twitter.com/WickedWaffles93 Dixie Normous

      I was on a couple of days ago and there were around 20k people still playing!

    • http://twitter.com/rdfiasco Ryan Davis

      Call of Duty 4 is still on top 20.  That’s even more impressive considering three CoD games have been released since then.

      • Anonymous

        4 COD games since COD4…World At War,MW2,Black Ops and now MW3 :D

        • aStrangeDisease

           Halo 3 is two months older than CoD 4.

          • Anonymous

            I didn’t even see Medveten’s post,i was just answering Ryan Davis,LOL..didn’t realise it was a HALO Vs COD conversation :p

      • Anonymous

         Not really, CoD is a bigger IP, exists on multiple formats, has sold better and CoD 4 is by purists considered the last real CoD worth playing ;)

      • Anonymous

        4 Halo games have been released since Halo 3 ;)

        • aStrangeDisease

          Only 2 Halo games have been released since Halo 3:
          ODST (a Halo 3 expansion) and Halo Reach. Halo Wars is an RTS, not a real Halo game and Anniversary is a re-release, not a new game.

           All of the 4 CoD games released since CoD 4 have been full sequel retail releases.

          • Anonymous

            I know that :)

    With Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning making the top 20 Curth Shilling can breathe a sigh of relief that he didn’t blow his retirement money.

    been loving KoA,its a great game,lots to do and massive world to do it in

    I am hoping Gotham City Imposters has legs has i will be buying it today as XBLA games don’t usually keep their audience(BF43 excluded)

    • Anonymous

      I know I’m still going to be playing Gotham City Impostors. It’s nice to have a game that uses Call of Duty ideas, but doesn’t take itself so seriously. The fact that free DLC is coming out next month including a new map and some weapons will definitely keep my attention longer.

  • http://twitter.com/GreenMistt Miller

    So Major… Any news on Gamertag recycling?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XOTBJKUR4IW74YLQH2LHQTE2BU Kairu

      xD Persistence is key.

      • http://twitter.com/GreenMistt Miller

        Yeah, well if you want to join in, be my guest :P

  • Ewan Stewart

    I love how the first month that Saints Row the Third came out, it was taken over by GTAIV. Talk about impressive.

    Also, would anyone mind telling me how FIFA 12 is so high in the charts? I heard there were hacking issues or something along those lines?

    • http://twitter.com/WickedWaffles93 Dixie Normous

      Saints row has nothing on Gta.

      • Anonymous

        Except fun, perhaps. But it’s in the eye of the beholder.

    • Anonymous

       Well, considering Saints Row: The Third removed the competitive multiplayer, there’s very little reason to continue playing once you’ve finished the game.

    • Anonymous

      First of all, the following, brand awareness and market saturation for GTA is vastly larger than Saints Row–the comparison is illogical. Its like comparing Mass Effect to Deus Ex, or Call of Duty to Battlefield. Secondly, Saints Row doesn’t have a multiplayer component, which makes the comparison even less logical. Why people feel compelled to make comparisons like this is beyond me.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XOTBJKUR4IW74YLQH2LHQTE2BU Kairu

    Oh would you look at that… I got ANOTHER system update. What’s going on seriously. That’s 2 in two weeks.

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

      theyre probably just fixing the stuff they broke with the last one…

    • Anonymous

      pfft…honestly,you know that the Xbox is in direct competition with the Playstation,and that goes for updates as well!! ;)

  • Alejandro González

    Yay, Little Racers STREET on 12th place!

  • http://twitter.com/mathuthe Mathias Olivera

    Major, I just got another Xbox Live update apart from the one last week. What’s this all about?

    • Anonymous

      It apparently fixed voice recognition issues. I take it that means for Kinect?

  • http://twitter.com/fwb73 james reid

    just had a new update, now no sound :( connected over hdmi
     

  • ElektroDragon

    Reckoning should be WAY higher, its my new Skyrim!

  • Anonymous

    I don’t like seeing NFL Blitz dropping.  I love that game and it’s got great online modes. I know people were complaining about no late hits but who cares that has nothing to do with the actually game itself.

  • http://twitter.com/Ganon255 Dustin

    GTA IV is doing well on GFWL and almost made the top 10 for the 360. No sign of my beloved Dark Souls. Call of Duty is unstoppable. Any guesses to what will be the game to dethrone the Call of Duty series from #1?

      Halo 4?

  • http://twitter.com/joeylaw_1 Joey Law

    Halo Reach has a ridiculous amount of staying power. Two years after launch and its still 6th on the list.

    • Anonymous

      Halo 3′s been out for almost 4 and a half years and it’s still 16th.

      • Anonymous

         And it’s still better than Halo: Reach.

    • http://twitter.com/karlcramer Karl Cramer

      Halo Reach is indeed great but I think it gets a little extra boost since multiplayer for Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary is recognized by LIVE as Reach.

  • CyberSkull

    What is with the update today?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XOTBJKUR4IW74YLQH2LHQTE2BU Kairu

      It was to fix what they broke with the last update. But since it’s MS they pretended nobody had problems with it so they said it fixed “voice recognition”. 

      • http://twitter.com/Byyys Byyys

        Microsoft needs to stop with these updates and start listening to their customers, after all; without xbox live users paying for subscriptions nobody would get paid ….  I’ve not seen one thing added to the new so called “metro” that live users asked for,    i read threw alot of them in the pre-release channel and all were pushed to the side. Surely putting up a poll on the xbox website or even facebook pages would show they actually care what we think, instead of being greedy by shoving ads in ur face.

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

    yer, but whadya guna do…..

    no but seriously, your right, i think its the fact that most consoles are connected to live/psn/wateva and therefore they can afford to sell u broken games, and feed u gigaquads of dashspam.
    what if a company makes a game, the same company hosts their own game (for a small fee of course), and if u want dlc u could pay the people who made the game/dlc. no middle men.
    i know phantsy star did something similar, but im kinda surprised theyre the only ones… can u imagine if cod did the same?
    ms and sony would be so screwed… there must be sum big sacks of bribe money going from (m(s)ony) to cod headquarters to stop that me thinks.
    yours sincerly,
    dreamer

    I have a Cloud suggestion if anyone would like to hear me out. The Cloud Saving ability is a great feature but it needs to hold more than MegaBytes worth of stuff. Microsoft should also allow for clothing/gamerpics/themes/replay vids to be uploaded too. Keep updates and installed games on the hard drive.
