Dead On Live

We didn't try those older titles because, as the article states, we were focused on games from the most recent year.

We showed our work regarding GTA IV; our experience is what it is. Doesn't make us idiots, and it doesn't mean you're not getting better matchmaking. But that is why we described what we tried to do and when we tried to do it (time of day etc) in this experiment.

GTA 4? Flatlined? Are you fucking kidding me? Xbox 360 Top Live Titles (based on UU’s) 1 CoD: World at War 2 Halo 3 3 Call of Duty 4 4 Gears of War 2 5 Left 4 Dead 6 GTA IV <===== 7 Fallout 3 8 FIFA 09 9 Guitar Hero World Tour 10 Madden NFL 09 That's taken from Major Nelson's site. Given with the fact I've never had a problem finding a match, or finding people to play with on GTA4, I think you guys at OXM just have shitty luck. Good job proving NOTHING, idiots.

honestly, im just tired of halo. halo is really about to kick the bucket. i stopped playing gears 2 because... THE MATCHMAKING TAKES 20,000 MOTHERFUCKING YEARS!!!!!!! I HAVE SEEN NO GLITCHES CAUSE I PLAYED 1 DAMN MATCHMAKING GAME!!!!! after playing it, my time looking for a match versus actual time in a match FAR outweighs the time playing. it works like this. > > > play time: 5% time in menus: 95% > > > thats bullshit.

Gears 2 is close to kicking the bucket, the glitches and bugs kept people away. And the fact that nearly EVERYONE is playing Call of Duty World at War or even COD4 also hinders other games. Halo 2 and 3 will never die, they're fun but for some people the fun never goes away.

Kind of sad that GTA IV's multiplayer has died out. Never played it personally, but it sounded really good. And is Gears 2 dead already? I have a hard time believing that since it was released only a little while ago..... As to TF2's PC gathering, it's still going strong and better than the 360's online offering anyway. Just my 2 cents

From theoldguygamer I've recently began playing on-line. I've had this Gold account for a while, but never actually did any on-line play except for some original XBOX games. Then, I started playing Call of Duty 3 on line with the capture the flag mode. What a ball that was. Then, I tried call of duty 2. Finally I got call of duty 4. It was pretty good. But the game I like best so far is call of duty, world at war. I like the maps and all that goes with the game. I suppose the older call of duty games will fall by the wayside eventually, but people are still playing the 360 versions of them. My son began playing world at war after I did, and while I just made 2Lt, he is already playing prestige mode (he has a little more time to play than I do...). Last night, call of duty 4 and world at war both had more than 1,000,000 players logged in at once. I also heard that the latest fallout game is really good. If you're asking what's the best older game still being played? It has to be call of duty 3. I just wish that it had the mode of keeping track of your rank and so forth like call of duty 4 and world at war.

GTA IV was a blast to play online and I still enjoy playing it. I don't believe it will be flatlined again for awhile though with this new batch of DLC that's about to hit. A major game that was forgotten on this list was Gears of War 2. That game was amazing online, but there's no one EVER playing it. It is either dead or dying. I'll miss both of those games, but I guess that their spots will be taken over by even better titles.

I'm sad when it comes to Unreal Tournament III and ET: Quake Wars, those were both good games. Shadowrun deserves a sequel, that game was insanely fun. GTA IV's multiplayer died off like I kinda expected. I thought it was ok at best. Frontlines was ok too, I thought it'd be like Star Wars Battlefront, but it wasn't.

This is cool that you did this. Stuff like this help me to decide what to buy or not to buy because who wants to buy a game that no one plays. It would be a waste of money. Nice article!!!
