Major Nelson revealed in his blog that for the first time in Xbox Live's history, the most played Xbox Live game is not a shooter, but a strange strategy/simulation MMO played with LEGO-style blocks. In a case of the little indie game that could, Xbox Live Arcade title Minecraft surpassed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in the top spot.
For the week of the 15th October, the most played games on Xbox Live included:
1. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
3. EA Sports FIFA Soccer 13
4. Call of Duty: Black Ops
5. Borderlands 2
6. Halo: Reach
7. Battlefield 3
8. Modern Warfare 2
9. Madden NFL 13
10. NBA 2K13
In the rest of the list, Microsoft's free-to-play action-MMO, Happy Wars landed in #11, followed by The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Gears of War 3.
