Skyrim takes third on XBL’s activity chart

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a beast; the Bethesda open-world RPG has outdone the popularity of one of the most, well, popular multiplayer shooters of the year.

Looking at the latest Xbox Live activity charts that Xbox man Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb has provided on his blog, more people fancy swords and magic than they do spitting bullets in Battlefield 3. That’s quite something, we’d say.

There’s no beating the latest Call of Dutys though. Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops still occupy the top two spots.
