Microsoft Reveals the Most played 360 Games of 2011


The most played Xbox 360 game of 2011 will surprise absolutely no one. Neither will the second or the third, for that matter.

The list, released on Major Nelson's [http://majornelson.com/2012/01/06/top-games-of-2011/] blog today, covers the top twenty games played by Xbox Live users (Silver and Gold) during 2011. These numbers are based on unique users [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unique_user], rather than total accumulated playtime, otherwise I suspect that game with the dragons and the arrows [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/editorials/reviews/9216-The-Elder-Scrolls-V-Skyrim-Review] might have ranked a little higher.

Call of Duty dominates the top of the chart with its three most-recent installments. Halo: Reach, Battlefield 3 and Skyrim ranked fourth, fifth and sixth respectively. The two latest FIFA games outdid Madden by a hair, so Europeans can get their smug on, should they so wish.

The list in full:

Call of Duty: Black Ops
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Halo: Reach
Battlefield 3
Skyrim
Gears of War 3
FIFA 12
FIFA Soccer 11
Madden NFL 12
GTA IV
NBA 2K11
Battlefield: Bad Co. 2
Call of Duty 4
Battlefield 3 Beta
Halo 3
Gears of War 2
Forza Motorsport 4
Red Dead Redemption
Call of Duty: World at War


According to the other lists on the blog, Pinball FX2, Full House Poker and the, seemingly immortal, Castle Crashers were the best selling Arcade games, while a pair of shameless Minecraft knock-offs took first and second place in the indie rankings.

I'm genuinely surprised that GTA 4 is so high on the list. The same with Skyrim. While Skyrim wasn't unexpected, it was quite high for a game that came out with only a month and a half to make the list.

As for the top five.......I am actually surprised Black Ops is the highest COD game there. Although I guess a lot of people play Zombies as well as the multiplayer the MW games only have.

Surprised by GTA4, damn Niko is still kicking it. As for the Cod games, i'm glad Blops is on top as that one tried new things and is much more meatier that MW3. I'm playing through MW3 right now and I just hate it. It has some amazing moments, i/e the plane mission and the East River mission in New York but everything else is just bad. Multiplayer is even worse.

Really unsurprising. Of course the games with the large multiplayer communities top the list.

The only thing truly astounding about this list is the amount of time that must have been crammed in between November 11 and the time this list was made on Skyrim in order to make it that high. There's only one game above it that was released in the same month.

No, it appears there's only one other game that was released in the same month period. That's pretty amazing, especially for a single-player fantasy game.

There are two very important words in there that seem to have been disappearing this generation.

I'm pissed off the sports games are on there. I'm not a Xbox guy, just pissed off that people can be suckered to spend enough money on a new game for what should be a DLC with the roster changes.

i agree on the sports games. Only one I always buy is Madden. Cuz I'm just too much of a football junkie lol. If they released the games every 2 years so you could get a product where they've taken the time to actually add new features and improve the whole game, as well as having graphical enhancements great enough to matter at all, and do DLC packs that include draft picks and updated stats/age/retirements/trades/etc. until the next game comes out 2 years later I'd be happy.

Skyrim would also be a lot higher if Xbox players had access to the same Mods that the PC crowd does. As it is, I bet a few are waiting until the DLC comes out.

So, can it be officially sad that, due to ALL CALL OF DUTY GAMES RELEASED IN THIS GENERATION released on this list, that CoD is the most popular franchise of all time for the Xbox?

Because if that's the case, then I need to go cry.



... On another note, woot! That's certainly a milestone for Skyrim to even make this list given how it only had about a month to rack up people playing it, especially given how it's something 'new and unique'.

Really, 12 of the top 20 are FPS?!? There is something wrong there when one gaming branch has that many games on the list // This show that either a lot more FPS are made than any other game set, or that the replay value of those games are low

The only thing that messes with the numbers here is muilt-player // FPS is all about the online matches nowadays so that put these number into perspective // It's not that they are better games, it's just easy to replay

I'm pleasantly surprised about GTA IV and Skyrim.

What intrigues me is that MW2 was so popular. I feel sorry for Halo 0.

Oh don't get me wrong, I'm glad too. But GTA4 came out in 08, and it's still going strong on Live. I thought the top ten would just be COD games, Battlefield 3 and Halos.

Don't necessarily think Blops should be number one but I'm glad it's above MW3. You'd think they'd get PS3s since they're so enthralled by online games.

The same could be said for some other higher scoring games on the list, but instead of roster changes, a few tweaks here and there to the online arsenal and killing fields - once again something that I would assume to be nothing more than content pack back in the early millennium - a time when games were cheaper anyway. It pains me, it really does. I don't even know why, it doesn't effect me if I just ignore it. Probably has something to do with my little brother falling foul of this trap each and every year, with my parents money. Now I'm self-sufficient I jsut take pride in knowing that not a penny of my money is going towards those (what I see as) crooked cash cow products.

That does only talke into account people on live right? How do they know how much I have played my games bearing in mind I am not connected to the net on my xbox! So that figure is slightly off... I wonder how many people are playing Skyrim without connection, or a lot of the other single player games!?

Well, it did have 9 months of play time before MW3. I knew it would be Black Ops before I even saw the list; Xbox live had something like 2 million unique players on the first day of Black Op release date.. luls.

I'd love to see the Ps3 and PC list (which, I presume, would be quite impossible to produce. Hell, a Facebook game might top the list). Judging from my 50/60 PSN friends, the most frequent games I see being played on the Ps3 is Uncharted 3 and Skyrim. So I would think they'd be No.1 and No.2 on that list.

What's that about my sample size being too small? Haha.

Hardly surprising, especially considering the amount of people like my dad who bought an xbox purely for CoD multiplayer and disregard even the notion of other games.

Nice to see Skyrim in there, and GTA IV and Red Dead. But 17/20 games either shooters or sports?

I am disappoint.

Slightly surprised by World At War still being there (since it's so incredibly hard to find a game without god mode, quick fire players). But other then that exactly as expected.

Why oh why must intelligent commenters on here persist in making and spreading generic assumptions on the mental capacity of CoD/FIFA/Madden gamers? It would be no different to someone calling all players of Skyrim basement-dwelling, WoW-playing geeks or GTAIV players latent psychopaths just waiting for the chance to go murder happy. Both untrue, both unreasonable.

Regardless of the games that people enjoy surely we should all just be happy that gaming itself has become more mainstream, after all, it's a pastime we (presumably) all enjoy...

If that doesn't convince; I'm a FIFA player and I've typed this without dribbling, I'm a CoD player and I've not been a sweary 12 year old for a while now, I'm a Skyrim player and basements concern me, I'm a GTIV player and I don't currently have plans for any funtime murder sprees.

TL:DR; Stop sneering at others habits, we're all gamers, enjoy what we have in common rather than revel in what we don't.

On a less ranty and more on topic note; If only there was a way of seeing an average of how long each gamer has spent playing each of those top ten, I suspect Skyrim would be higher though probably not top...

You know, there are times where I wish this site had a like button. Not a dislike button though cause that would just be mean.

Anyway, yeah, I also play Call of Duty from time to time, haven't bought a copy since the fourth since my cousin gets them every release and I just play them on split screen online at his house. However neither I or my cousin are frat boys who like to yell at people and swear like fucking 12 year olds... I actually play DnD and mostly enjoy RPGs than anything else.

The stereotyping is annoying and the whole no true Scotsmen "Your not a real gamer if you play COD" fallacy gets on my nerves. I can understands peoples dislike in it however... Its just a game, you don't like it fine, write a review, hate on it... What ever but don't insult the players or lump them into one big stereotype.

And they wonder why people hate the XBL community... Playing many of those games online was a CHORE because of the consistant ass-hattery by their respective communities. If i wanted profanities, racial slurs, homophobia and death threats shouted at me by a group of mal-ajusted 13 years olds i would go teach in a US public school.

Would that really make much difference to the overall statistics either way? I honestly have no idea on the numbers for that, just not under the impression it's significant enough to be relevant. In any case, copies solid would still be the better number anyways although I suppose that only applies to games that were release in the same year, doesn't do much good for the older stuff.

It's sad that I already knew what people in this community were going to comment, '*sigh* CoD is top', 'Yay Skyrim is up there, somewhere', 'Surprised at X game for being there'.

Jesus people everyone knows these things already, good job adding to the 'discussion'.

But then the games that came out earlier would have an unfair advantage, MW2 might even be above MW3 for example.

I'm just happy to hear Pinball FX2 sold well. I love that game to death and I want more tables to be released. And I think I own two games on that entire list. Never saw the appeal of the realistic war shooter. Give me something outlandish any day.

Oh yes I see, you met some annoying internet kids who happened to be playing xboxes, and suddenly the ENTIRE Xbox community are 'mal-adjusted 13-year-olds'.

Thank you sir, I'm sure that the PS3 and PC online communities are completely idiot-free zones...

Can someone please explain to me why people play video games based on sports?? I DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS!! (and no, it's not because I suck at those 'games')

Especially soccer. I love me a good game of soccer. Outside.

Other then that, I'm not surprised. At all.

You'd be surprised. On PSN, it's a greater volume as the accounts are free. On 360, it's typically sham accounts with 30-day or weekend trials etc., and they are certainly more numerous than you'd expect.

Thing is, the usual result of cheating/modding etc. is a temporary or sometimes permanent ban from the service. LOTS of people run a 2nd, 3rd account and so on to be able to cheat/mod/glitch without fear of reprisal. CoD is the main target for that these days.

Then there's also new accounts for those who wish to abuse TrueSkill, to boost, to glitch achievements etc.

For those who are surprised at GTAIV being on there, remember that there was a drastic decrease in price for the expansion packs in the middle of last year, and the GOTY edition was cheap in shops too.

you have to keep in mind that you need your x-box connected to the internet to be able to keep track of this, something that is almost required for the call of duty games but no so for skyrim.

It's unique users, rather than time spent on the games, and it sold spectacularly well.
The thing that surprises me is that MW2 is 3rd on the list, given that BlOps came out in November 2010.

I know there a company out there that does measure the time played for the Xbox sorta like the Nielsen Ratings for television. They had Skyrim locked at number 1, with player playing on average almost twice as long as any other game per week.(I know Raptr does it too, but there was a company specifically for the Xbox 360)

That's actually a really good point. The games above Skyrim are pretty much only purchased for MP, so we can assume that ~95% of the purchasers are online and thus included in this list. Skyrim isn't the same. There could be hundreds of thousands with offline 360's playing Skyrim and other SP games only.

Why oh why must intelligent commenters on here persist in making and spreading generic assumptions on the mental capacity of CoD/FIFA/Madden gamers? It would be no different to someone calling all players of Skyrim basement-dwelling, WoW-playing geeks or GTAIV players latent psychopaths just waiting for the chance to go murder happy. Both untrue, both unreasonable.

Regardless of the games that people enjoy surely we should all just be happy that gaming itself has become more mainstream, after all, it's a pastime we (presumably) all enjoy...

If that doesn't convince; I'm a FIFA player and I've typed this without dribbling, I'm a CoD player and I've not been a sweary 12 year old for a while now, I'm a Skyrim player and basements concern me, I'm a GTIV player and I don't currently have plans for any funtime murder sprees.

TL:DR; Stop sneering at others habits, we're all gamers, enjoy what we have in common rather than revel in what we don't.

On a less ranty and more on topic note; If only there was a way of seeing an average of how long each gamer has spent playing each of those top ten, I suspect Skyrim would be higher though probably not top...
