Some content (and therefore the links) may not be available in all Xbox LIVE regions.

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

    It’d be cool if these numbers were somehow broken down by region (country/state) so that you could see not just what was popular on all of Xbox Live, but in a specific area also.  

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

    LOL at how Mass Effect 2 re-entered the Top 20 as people get ready for Mass Effect 3. Either finishing it or replaying it to get the perfect ending.

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

    Kind of annoyed that Microsoft Flight doesn’t credit you achievement points until you buy an add-on. At least that’s what I’m assuming. None of the points I earned have shown up in my gamerscore.

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

      Lol, you’ve gotta be kidding me! Idc for MS Flight, but if that’s right, then please don’t buy it. This is exactly what encourages DLC, which is now more like Disc-Locked-Content.

      • Anonymous

        No problems for the Flight achievements showing up here, and you can get approximately half of the current ones without paying a penny.

      • Anonymous

         Uhhhhhhhhh… It’s a free to play game so yes, the content is locked by design since you’re not paying anything for the base game.

      • http://twitter.com/Ganon255 Dustin

        “Disc-Locked-Content” – lol, love this

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

        There’s a lot of game even in just the FREE version. There’s nothing to complain about here.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1355305542 Chris Rabideau

      I had the same problem when I first started playing. It looks like there is simply a delay on the gamerscore being credited or matching up with your Gamertag profile. It sorted itself out for me properly without anything needing to be purchased.

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

        Tried it again last night. The achievements popped up. Must’ve been a hiccup on then back end.

    • http://twitter.com/boeboelord Boe2

      that’s a good thing, remember the (completely failed) arcade room? Start the free arcade room *bleep* 5 achievement points..”now it’s in your achievements list forever. Want more achievements? BUY our crappy minigames, suckerrrrrs”
      Gee, thanks, Microsoft.

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

        I have no problem with a free achievements in my list forever. Rented lots of games I tried, didn’t like, got points for, but wouldn’t but the game to get the rest.
        The difference is that Arcade Room was a bad concept that overcharged for classic games. Microsoft Flight is actually a pretty good game with a lot to play even in the free version. The add-on is priced at what you’d expect for that kind of game.

      CORRECTION: Played it last night and the achievements showed up in my gamerscore. Incorrectly credited as being achieved on 3/9/2012 but they’re there. Must’ve been a hiccup in the backend system the first week the game launched. Good FREE game. Not so hardcore simulation. A little more Pilotwings-like now. Works well on low-end machines too. If you have a wired Xbox 360 controller, it plays like a console game.

    How in the world is Real Steel still up high on that list? That’s a total head scratcher.

    • Anonymous

       Even more so considering the DLC model is ridiculous. The core game is fun, I’ll say that, but the endless stream of add-ons turned me away.

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

      It’s been a popular DVD.

  • Anonymous

    The numbers of actually how many Unique users and explaining how it works(numbers per day,weeks) would be interesting too.

  • Anonymous

    Reach moving on up!

    • aStrangeDisease

      Yeah, Halo is back in the top 5. New video of Halo 4 looks sick too!

  • Anonymous

    Whatever happened to Halo 2 PC? It used to be pretty high up on the list but now it’s just simply gone and has been gone for awhile. I’m pretty sure quite a few people still play it. People who liked playing Halo 2 online have no choice but to play Halo 2 PC now if they still want to play Halo 2 over Live.

    And it’s too bad that Halo 3, once the top of the list for over 3 years, is now close to being knocked off the list. People should start playing Halo 3 more again. Remember the good old times in Halo 3? The large 16 player custom games that people always host? It’s just something that Halo: Reach wasn’t able to match.

      halo 2 works pretty good over xlink on the 360, if u dont mind being the only one talking english… 

      • Anonymous

        thought they shut it down completely?

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

          its like system link over the net… u need a computer too, and most of the programs u use to link up do suck, but hey, it is free halo 2 online…

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

      That’s probably Bungie and 343 Studio’s fault. They’ve all but ignored it. Halo 2 PC isn’t counted in Halo Waypoint. I once asked 343′s David Ellis at PAX why Halo 2 PC was ignored in Halo Waypoint. He said they’ve heard that question a few times, then shrugged his shoulders.
      Bungie even gave special markers for Halo Combat Evolved PC that showed up with your name in Halo Reach. Nothing for Halo 2 PC. The final nail in the coffin is that Halo 2 PC isn’t available for sale as a download on Xbox.com. Not too many retailers carry it anymore, so it fades into a slow death.

    Sad not seeing Kingdoms of Amular in the top 20.  Such a great RPG!  IF you like action RPGs, check it out!

    • http://twitter.com/Ganon255 Dustin

      I also suggest Dark Souls

      • Anonymous

        I also suggest jumping off a cliff right after that.

      FYI today is the last day to unlock the ME3 items in the KoA demo!

  • http://twitter.com/TrashMKX Chris

    Yay for Alan Wake!!

  • Dr Cowley

    WOW! Look at all those kinect titles in the top 20, i guess MS should leave controller based gaming in the past and develop some more wacky wavy-arm games as they seem so popular…

    • http://twitter.com/HTLoneWolf HTLoneWolf

      4uck off. 

      • Dr Cowley

        You see? Thats what you get for using wacky arm controls, very poor spelling. I’m pretty sure that first word you used should start with an F and not a 4 (or any number for that matter), you should have used a proper physical controller to input your words

      • http://twitter.com/boeboelord Boe2

        I knew bad controls could lead to a lot of frustration, but keep that frustration in the game ;)

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

        putting the troll in controller…

    Black ops still going strong. May just go back to that.

    • http://twitter.com/CFFlack Christopher Flack

      It’s so much fun! do it!

  • http://twitter.com/boeboelord Boe2

    I did notice some friends started playing Trials again. Worries me a bit, because now they might crush my scores without me noticing, as I’m fully focused on SSX right now.

  • http://twitter.com/Rdog_11 Rdog

    NBA 2K11 is a surprise at number 20
