Skyrim is the 3rd most popular game on Xbox Live

Plenty of dragons being slain...

Major Nelson has released the Xbox Live activity charts for the week of November 21, and surprise, surprise, Modern Warfare 3 is on top, followed by Black Ops.


Coming in at third place though is Skyrim (Skyrim guide here). The popular RPG beat out the likes of Battlefield 3, FIFA 12, Gears of War 3 and Halo: Reach. Impressive stuff.

Skyrim is also the most played game on the Steam charts too, with around 80,000 more players at its peak than the free-to-play Team Fortress 2.

Only time will tell if Skyrim has the same all year round appeal as the Call of Duty games, but Bethesda should be very pleased with the current popularity of the game.

The publisher released an update for the game earlier this week, but it seems the 1.2 patch may have introduced a fresh set of problems for players of the brilliant but technologically troubled RPG.
