Now that the new year is in full swing, Microsoft has decided to take a look back at the top games of 2009. Specifically, Major Nelson has released a breakdown
of the most popular games on Xbox Live during 2009. The overall top twenty list seems pretty standard with Halo 3
at the top, followed by Call of Duty 4
. What's amazing, though, is that after releasing in November, Modern Warfare 2
managed to snag third place for the entire year
. So, pretty popular game, then.
On the downloadable front, Battlefield 1943
takes top XBLA honors, followed by Castle Crashers
and Trials HD
. Indie Games are topped by I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES!!!1N IT!!!1
(it is just a dollar
), followed by Avatar Drop
. Unsurprisingly, the top original Xbox game is still Halo 2
, while Star Wars: Battlefront 2
and the original Fable
take second and third place, respectively. Head over to Major Nelson for the full list.
