Xbox’s Major Nelson has released lists of the most popular games on Xbox Live – boxed retail, XBLA and Indie titles. Their place in the charts is calculated using some sort of odd numerical alchemy based on their first week of availability, so it doesn’t take slow burning hits in to account. It also only considers games released in 2010, which is why games like Modern Warfare and Gears of War are missing.

The results, as far as retail games go, are hardly surprising. Annual shooter Call of Duty takes top spot, followed by console exclusive Halo Reach. Hit the jump to see what else people were playing on Xbox Live in 2010.

i find it somewhat odd that the top and bottom of the indie lists seem like games for perverts. Baby Maker? Sound dodgy…but not nearly as dodgy as the last one on the list.

You see anything surprising in those lists?

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.
