2007’s Top Games on Xbox Live


Major Nelson has posted up a few lists of interest on his blog detailing the most played Xbox 360 and Xbox 1 games on Xbox Live, as well as the most purchased Xbox Live Arcade games from 2007. Unsurprisingly, Halo 3 and Halo 2 dominate the first two lists, while TMNT 1989 Arcade was the most purchased Arcade game of the year. I thought I was alone in loving that game prior to its release on XBLA.

Top Xbox 360 Games (Unique Users)

  1. Halo 3
  2. Gears of War
  3. Call of Duty 4
  4. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas
  5. Call Of Duty 3
  6. Crackdown
  7. Oblivion
  8. Guitar Hero II
  9. Forza Motorsport 2
  10. Lost Planet

Call of Duty 3? Really? I found that one to be pretty shocking considering how terrible I’d argue the game is. Apparently, people don’t seem to care, and so long as you’ve got a popular name attached to the game, people will play it. (Why do I get the feeling that saying that is just begging someone to bring Madden up in the comments?)

The other two lists can be seen after the jump.

Halo 3 should really get credit for being #1 and #6 for the first category. We all know that a majority of Crackdown players were there just to play the Halo 3 beta. I know that’s the only reason I ever got Crackdown.
