The most pirated video game of 2010? Call of Duty: Black Ops TorrentFreak has posted their list of the most pirated video games of the year, and unsurprisingly the top title is Call of Duty: Black Ops.
COD was the most pirated game on the PC, and fifth most on the Xbox 360. Super Mario Galaxy 2 was the most pirated Wii title.

Dante’s Inferno took the cake for the 360.

Despite launching in November, Black Ops was downloaded 4,270,000 times for the PC and 930,000 times for the 360.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 came in second with 4,270,000 total downloads.

TF says their data is "collected from several sources, including reports from all public BitTorrent trackers. All the data is carefully checked and possible inaccuracies are systematically corrected."

The full list (rank, game, download count, release month):

Surprise! Surprise! When you put DRM-laddened shit on the game, guess what happens? Don't worry you don't have the answer if you don't want it, b/c you know it already don't you?
