That sure didn't take very long. Call of Duty 4 has passed over Gears of War as the second most played game on Xbox Live according to Major Nelson's latest top 10 list. Assassin's Creed debuted at #9
More after the jump.
Not surprising, the game is really good.
gears of wars multiplayer is joke if u call that a online multiplayer lol the only good thing about gears of war is that to date no game atm in 3rd person looks better than gears of war P.S im not a 3rd person shooter fan especially when they try and make it online multiplayer
COD 4 is the best multiplayer experience available at the moment
...Gears of War, Like Halo 3, did not sit well with me in terms of on-line play. GOW was laggy as hell if you didn't have a top notch connection. I hate the physics with Halo 3 - all that jumping and jumping....and jumping.
COD4 is in one word...brilliant. It will be in the top 5 on-line games for the 360 for a long time yet.
I agree, it's good to see taste and gameplay prevail for once.
It hasn't ousted Halo, probably never will, but nonetheless, good to see it jump in the face of overzealous hype.
Hype=Fuel for Halo 3
the word hype shouldnt be used if numbers back the game up.
#1 most played online game.
It's number one because it's not hype, It's actually fun. So i dont know where you get hype from. The only thing that was hyped was the launch.
Not suprising and for good reason. It's really good game, but wait for Gears of War 2 (GOW). It will surpass both. The first GOW increased XBL membersip by 50%. Then COD 5 will be on top and on and on.
Dammm thats sweet all I have to say is "GAME ON PEOPLE GAME ON"
Gamer Tag slak88.....c u guys in COD4
cod4 is better than gears of war muliplayeronline buy milesssssssss
Gears of War is more tactical.
Gears of War online has better community than COD4. why? because there is no point in talking to your teamates when it's just shoot and clustered.
another reason why COD4 multi is inferior to other FPS, is that you really dont get recognized in that game, there is no talent in pwning anyone in COD4. It is basically just shoot the enemy before he shoots you.
Although I am not downplaying COD4. It's a good multiplayer no doubt. With all the crazy bullets flying everywhere,, it is WAR!!. But I just have to disagree that it's better than Gears.
Why isn't Halo3 on top? I would of assumed it would of been the most played online. hmm...
Lmao Gears came out a year ago. This is such a duh statement. COD4 is such a great game though, leveling up is truly a brilliant idea. But epic ruined Gears online with their crappy game search, you wait more than you play. Games like Halo2/3/COD4 have the servers, where you click, find match, and bam your in a match. In Gears you find a match and wait and wait and wait some more til you exit and than just go play unranked for the sheer fact you can play without a full match and the fact the matches never end. Lol @ people who think cod4 is tactical online though. Being tactical gets your ass shot in the back, running like a madman is the way to get kills. In Gears you can work as a team against the opposing four players, talking about where the guys are, etc. COD4 consists of people talking to their friends about last nights event or school for the day.
A game a year old? what?
