crysis 2Hello all, a late Happy Newyear, I was visiting my family so I took a couple of days off.

What's scary, though, is that a lot of people pirate games. Here is the top 5 most pirated games of 2011 on PC, Xbox 360, and the Wii according to www.torrentfreak.com

That's actually very interesting man, it's amazing how many games are pirated and stuff, the sheer volume is insane especially when that represents a lot of lost profit to video game companies. Thanks for sharing this buddy, have a happy 2012 as well.

It surprises me that Lego Pirates of the Caribbean has so many downloads...then again I've never played a Lego game before.

Great list! What I find interesting is that Skyrim isn't on there. There are some late-in-the-year games like CoD and all that. Weird.
