Call of Duty dominates the Xbox 360 – 4 out of the top 10 titles belong to the series

1 min read

I am absolutely loving Call of Duty Black Ops and now that my Xbox 360 is packed away while I jet off home I am starting to get some withdrawals. I also loved Modern Warfare 2 and pretty much all the other COD titles but I have to admit the latest Xbox 360 rankings left me feeling a little sad inside.

As good as the Call of Duty series is I just don’t feel that it’s good for gamers that there are 4 Call of Duty titles in current top 10 most played games on Xbox Live.

Black Ops leads the pile in the number 1 spot with Modern Warfare 2 right behind it. Then World at War comes in at number 7 with COD 4 in 9th.

Added to that is Halo Reach in 3rd and Halo 3 in 10th and we have 6 out of the top 10 titles being generic shooters.

The other spots are taken by Madden, FIFA, Fallout and Fable which leads me to believe that naming your title with an F is a sure fire way to garner sales.

The entire list in order is

1 Call of Duty: Black Ops
2 Modern Warfare 2
3 Halo: Reach
4 FIFA Soccer 11
5 Fable III
6 Fallout: New Vegas
7 Call of Duty: WaW
8 Madden NFL 11
9 Call of Duty 4
10 Halo 3

It’s also interesting to note that Kinect Adventures (packed in with all Kinect sensors) only debuted at 14th.

    This comes as no suprise the Xbox has shifted the tide of gaming from pedominantly japanese heavy hitters to american rule. interestingly enough CoD being this dominant on a console would have been unheard of last gen.That being said GTA paved the way for all these ex PC sweethearts to dominate consoles.
