Black Ops crowned king of Xbox Live in 2010

Today Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb posted the top-20 Xbox Live titles of 2010, and, as if there was any doubt, Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops sits atop the list.

The list is a little screwy, though. Unlike the 2008 and 2009 lists, Nelson decided to make it “fair” this year by tallying just the first 7 days of Xbox Live figures, and rank them from there.

So what you see below are the top 20 Xbox Live titles of 2010 based on the number of unique users each game tallied in its launch week.

Any surprises?

1. Call of Duty: Black Ops
2. Halo: Reach
3. Red Dead Redemption
4. Fable III
