New Xbox Live Activity figures from Major Nelson reveal that Treyarch’s Call of Duty : World at War is currently the most played game on Live, knocking perennial leader Halo 3 in to second place. This may have something to with the Nazi Zombie minigame being untethered, and the recent Double XP weekend. Or it may be because Halo 3 is a load of boring, overhyped rubbish. Whatever the cause, it’s sure to make Treyarch’s Activision overlords happy. Call of Duty 4 comes in at third place beating out Gears of War 2, and the ridiculously fun zombie armageddon gore-fest Left 4 Dead.

On the arcade front Bohemoth’s Castle Crashers takes top spot, with those feisty annelids bazookering their way in to second. Super Mega Jolly Street Fighter II Turbo Sea-Urchin Ham Sandwich Deluxe Ultra Party HD Megamix – probably the one game  on the whole list that I’ve played most – came third. Like Sony.

Full list after the jump.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
