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

  • http://twitter.com/CaptNink Chris Ninkovich

    Skyrim still chugging along! Nice!

  • http://twitter.com/HotDanceTrax Alex

    yugioh game is terrible but still bought it.

  • http://twitter.com/Ganon255 Ganon255

    Dark Souls!

  • http://twitter.com/lucrichard Luc Richard

    Who’s still playing MW 3??

    • http://www.facebook.com/lakaumbucha Ricky Ricardo Lakaumbucha Pean

      I play it every once in a while. If I didn’t have a little to care for I’d probably play it more often.

  • http://www.facebook.com/573v35m17h Steve Smith

    Halo 4: Over 7 million copies sold and barley 70,000 playing online.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Curtis-Isabell/1036013363 Curtis Isabell

      halo 4: worst single player in any halo game ever
      halo 4: worst multiplayer in any halo game ever ( excluding ODST)
      halo 4: still didn’t listen to fans and have custom map browser.

      • Qwrt

        I liked the single player! But I agree with the words said bout the multiplayer …

      • http://twitter.com/dlchief58 Michael Burden

        All I see is opinion, opinion, and opinion with several incorrect statements. You say ODST has the worst multiplayer in the series, yet it uses the Halo 3 online component complete with all maps and added Firefight. So by inference, you must think Halo 3 is the worst because it has the same multiplayer as ODST but fewer maps unless you shell out some bucks. And there is a custom map browser for Halo 4, the Waypoint version was put up this week.

    • Boss Saucier

      You realize that people can’t play games 24 hours a day, right? Some people also have lives outside of video games. The fact that Halo 4 is in the top 5 means that it is played more than 99.9% of all Xbox games.

      I think Halo 4 is a great game and I never have trouble finding a match online.

      • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

        Well said.

      • http://www.facebook.com/573v35m17h Steve Smith

        Halo 4 is a bad game. Bad maps, no ranking system, and a broken multiplayer not to mention the file share system is STILL not working. I’ve been playing since the first Halo and any other real Halo fan knows Halo has been in decline since Reach. The games are becoming noob friendly by taking away the skill gap and catering to the casuals. What’s the point if you lose every game you play up to your SR130? Here’s hoping for a Halo 2 Anniversary…

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bush-O-Connor/555604190 Bush O Connor

          with Halo 2 multiplayer.

          • Ary

            only reason why people stoped playing halo 2 was cus xbox 360 cut it out for us

        • http://twitter.com/boe2BE Boe2

          Never played a Halo game in my life, but seeing it ranked 4th in most played online games is pretty solid proof that you are dead wrong.

        • http://twitter.com/dlchief58 Michael Burden

          Halo 4 is not by any means a bad or broken game. Ranking system is irrelevant and has no effect on the quality of the game. File share IS working now, though it should have been ready at launch. I am not saying there isn’t some further tweaking that needs to take place (like the DMR aim assist, it is ridiculous) but it is no where near the train wreck some of these so called “real Halo” fans are trying to make it out to be.

          All you want is Halo 3.1 because you cannot adapt to new play concepts that add another layer of complexity to the game. If this game and Reach are so much worse than Halo 3, then why isn’t Halo 3 in the top 20 games played over Live? I rest my case.

        • Ary

          yes Halo 2 aniversary plz

      • QuixoticRocket

        Yeah.. 70k online at a time does not mean that only 70k play. It means that a lot more people play to maintain that number.
        But it’s popular to hate on popular things now and claim your hipster credentials by claiming that the older version was superior.
        Haters gonna hate.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Avi-Patel/100002076529431 Avi Patel

      why should that matter?? just play what you want.

      • QuixoticRocket

        No.. You have to make sure that the entire internet knows how much you hate something! Otherwise what’s the internet for? right? right? aw =(

    • a fat mess

      People who hate Halo 4 just can’t adapt. Keep living in the past bro.

    • bioadam

      Mircosoft is so embarrassed by Halo 4′s live activity, Major Nelson skipped a week in reporting the Live Activity top 20.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Curtis-Isabell/1036013363 Curtis Isabell

    other than party chat, I haven’t used my xbox all week =

  • mcmax3000

    Only real surprise on the list to me is seeing Family Game Night jump back into the top 20 XBLA games. Not sure why on earth people would buy those games now, especially given that they’ve turned online play off for them.

    • Z4M0

      …and REAL STEEL being so solid in the list every week…

      • Guest

        Yeah, that game is meh…the movie was ok though.

        Major Nelson, please convey this message to the Xbox team:

        “PLEASE BUY THE DARKSIDERS IP (and Red Faction if possible)”.

  • Russell Gorall

    Like I have been saying, Microsoft should pay people to play Halo 4.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Avi-Patel/100002076529431 Avi Patel

      why would they do that??

    • http://www.facebook.com/lakaumbucha Ricky Ricardo Lakaumbucha Pean

      They tried that already. 10 million ms points were set aside for that a while back. I think I got 100 points the time time I put in.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ernest-Hawthorne/100000901490958 Ernest Hawthorne

    Wow Dead Space 3 that far down the list.

  • http://twitter.com/noelgomesmaster Noel Gomes

    so… more people playing minecraft than halo 4? sure…. why not…

    • QuixoticRocket

      I sometimes think more people play minecraft (across all platforms) than have access to running water. It’s extremely popular.

  • Advent

    I’m not surprised Forza Horizon didn’t make the top 20 seeing how both the game is just okay and the seaon pass and dlc are way over priced.

  • http://twitter.com/MentalGamrs Mental Gamers

    I thought Live activity was a list of games that were played online? All the top 20 usually have online modes, but then I saw Skyrim…

    • Ary

      ur right now im so confused… DOes this list rly show wich games are most played online = fast matchmaking?
