Call of Duty: Black Ops More Played Than Skyrim, BF3 on Xbox LIVE

Major Nelson has revealed the latest Xbox LIVE activivity for the week of November 21st.  The Xbox 360 Top LIVE Titles, based on Unique Users, revealed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was unshockingly the most played game on Xbox LIVE.

What is shocking, however, is that two of this year's biggest blockbuster titles, Skyrim and Battlefield 3, have failed to surpass even the older Call of Duty.  According to Nelson, Call of Duty: Black Ops was the 2nd most played game on Xbox LIVE.

Rounding out the top five was FIFA 12.

The full list of Top Xbox LIVE titles includes:

  1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
  2. Call of Duty: Black Ops
  3. Skyrim
  4. Battlefield 3
  5. FIFA 12
  6. Modern Warfare 2
  7. Halo: Reach
  8. Gears of War 3
  9. Madden NFL 12
  10. Saints Row: The Third  
  11. Assassin’s Creed Revelations
  12. GTA IV
  13. Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary
  14. Forza Motorsport 4
  15. Batman: Arkham City
  16. NBA 2K12
  17. Halo 3
  18. FIFA Soccer 11
  19. NHL12
  20. Call of Duty 4

If anything, this list should prove just how popular Activision's Call of Duty title is among Xbox 360 owners.  Many say Call of Duty's more "arcade-like" playstyle make it more enjoyable on console than other shooters, like Battlefield 3.  But the fact that four of the top 20 most played games are from Activision's blockbuster shooter franchise is a testament to the replay value of the Call of Duty games.
