TorrentFreak has released a list of the most pirated games of 2011 across the PC, X-Box 360 and Wii. Despite Gabe Newell previously stating that piracy was a “non-issue,” Portal 2 landed itself on the list.

For the PC, Crysis 2 topped the chart, with MW3 coming in a close second, given its comparatively late release in the year. MW3 continued to be the bridesmaid and not the bride on the X-Box 360, with Gears of War 3 clinching the number one spot. As for the Wii, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Mario Sports Mix were the most pirated games.
