Call of Duty: Black Ops takes the Top Spot, with Modern Warfare 3 doing very well for itself at Number 2 considering it had only been released a few weeks before the year end. Whether you love it, or hate it – there’s no denying that the Call of Duty franchise is a dominant force in the gaming industry.

Over on the Xbox LIVE Arcade side, Pinball FX2 took the Top Position, with Full House Poker coming in at number 2. For the full complete list of all Top Played games on the Xbox LIVE Arcade, Xbox LIVE Indie and Windows Phone games, check out Major Nelson’s list via this direct link.
