Halo 2 dethroned! Of course it wasn’t

Now when Halo 3 comes out and does dethrone its ancestor, you won’t believe me. Shame really. Major Nelson’s top 10 lists after the jump.

Xbox 360 Top Live Games:
1 Call of Duty 2
2 Ghost Recon 3
3 Oblivion
5 PGR3
6 Final Fantasy XI
7 Rockstar Table Tennis
8 EA SPORTS™ Fight Night Round 3
9 Perfect Dark Zero
10 Hitman: Blood Money Demo

Original Xbox Top Live Games:
1 Halo 2
2 Battlefield 2: MC
3 Counter-Strike
4 Splinter Cell Chaos
5 Pro Evolution Soccer 5
6 Rainbow Six 3 BA
7 Madden NFL 2006
8 Star Wars: Battlfrnt 2
9 Forza Motorsport
10 Ghost Recon 2: SS

This picture still scares me.

Table Tennis and the Blood Money demo seemed to have knocked UNO from the charts (maybe a matchmaking fix will help?) Major notes that if the lists were combined, Halo 2 would win with all Xbox 360 games below it. I bet you couldn’t have guessed that.

This was so suprising. Everyone knows Halo 2 won’t get dethroned until a couple of weeks after Halo 3 releases.

Because no one will be able to get online because the XBL servers will explode?

i think he means that will give pretty much everyone ample time to pick up a copy.

I still think GoW might do it.

i just dont get it, i tried many times to like this game its just so dull and i cant see why it gets so much masturbation from xboxers

Multiplayer is great fun, not as much as it used to be, but still very much fun.

Why is Oblivion in top 3 for live games. It’s a single player game not multi like the rest.

Every game is “live aware” which means you are always connected to the Xbox-live server, from that they [Microsoft] can detect amount of time spent on a particular game.

Yeah, and on top of that, BFMC and Table Tennis are a little lower than I would expect. Have you tried a ranked game on Table Tennis? Its like being in a finals tournament every game.
I would think Oblivion would not count even if it has downloadable content.
