The past 12 months were pretty big for gaming and now Microsoft's own Major Nelson is here to let everyone know which games had the biggest 2012 on the Xbox 360. This year's top online game was a massive shocker: Call of Duty: Black Ops II. (Checks figures) No, wait, that was pretty much expected, as it turns out.

The Xbox's “Top Games of 2012” have now been reported on Major Nelson's blog, giving us some insight into what everyone was playing this past year. The following rankings, according to the Major, are based on “average unique users per day” connected to Xbox Live, or full versions of the game that were purchased between Jan. 1, 2012 and Dec. 31, 2012, when said numbers could not be obtained.

So, here are this year's results broken down into four categories. The top Live titles list unsurprisingly featured a heck of a lot of shooting goodness, but at least the other categories show you gamers are getting some variety in your diet.
