The lights are on
Despite its online issues, Grand Theft Auto V still managed to jump to the top of the Xbox 360's most played list for the week September 30.
Xbox Live's Major Nelson's list, which he posted recently on his blog, tracks games played by people who are signed into Xbox Live, even if they aren't participating in multiplayer. Here's the full list for retail games, as well as the partial list for Arcade titles:

Our TakeMajor Nelson doesn't post these lists every week, but I wish he would. It's always fascinating to see what everyone is playing, even if they're free of big surprises. It turns out when you sell $1 billion worth a game, a lot of people are going to be playing it.

Huh, Modern Warfare 2 is gonna stick in that top 15 'til 2019.
i dont see how it made it to the top since you cant play online with 1 character for more then a day
I am not surprised that GTA V is at the top, although I am surprised to see GTA IV and Rainbow Six Vegas on there. I think Rainbow Six Vegas was recently offered as a free game for gold members, if I'm not mistaken. Maybe that's why.
is surprised so many people are playing i am still getting the "Rockstar Cloud Servers Unavailable" error message, so i can't save my character and the only thing i can do are races in a solo session.
BATTLEFIELD 3, Diablo 3 , and Madden 25 take up a lot of my online activity. It's really cool to see what is popular on the network !!!
And despite the patch the servers still offline. I just rtried to login after patching the 360 version and im getting a message rockstar cloud servres are down. you cant save blah blah. This is ridiculous now. They had 2 weeks delay after the game launch and now its been a week of this crap. Its becoming unacceptable now. I've been more than patient.
Castle Crashers still going strong after all this time, its good to see.
Too bad the gta online update was totally useless, my game worked fine online prior to the update and after the update my singleplayer was reset.
Although if it has happened to you check your harddrive to see if the files are still there cause mine were so technically your game has not been deleted
Game deserves it, if only for the singleplayer.
Multiplayer is good too, they just need to fix it.
Dear Epic; We want games like gears 3 not that crap you rushed out AKA Judgement. Sincerely, gamers.
Why does MIcrosoft have a guy who looks like a grandpa trying to talk to the kids about video games? Have any of you listened to his podcast? I stopped listening to it when him and the other guys he has there talked for about 30 minutes about ice makers, toilets from japan and the proper way to cook a burger. I think microsoft should get someone else for their spokesperson. Someone more hip......Sarah Underwood yay!
GTA is the only game I've been playing since it came out. The only other game I played was MW2 for like, 30 minutes when one of my friends came online.
