If there's one thing this poll proves, it's that the US is still pro-Xbox and pro-shooters.
Nielson put together a survey of the most wanted games for the upcoming holiday season, which resulted in a Top 20 "Must Have" list you can view at GameZone .
Unsurprisingly, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 claimed the top spot with a whopping 27% of the votes, while Gears of War 3 and Madden NFL 12 were tied for second with 19%. Now, because poll participants voted between August 21 and September 17, you have to expect the new Madden to be on there. But it didn't turn out that great and I'm sure gamers are looking forward again to other titles.
Perhaps if they conducted one now, games like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim would be higher than 15th, and Gears of War 3 would start to fall now that it's on store shelves. But interestingly enough, Battlefield 3 only ended up in 7th with just 12%, less than half of MW3. Well, maybe that's about right, as MW3 is destined to sell at least double (probably more) the number of copes BF3 sells.
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception was 11th at 9%, by the way. Even Just Dance 3 is above it. …maybe now we know why the mass populace has put the Xbox 360 in front and hardcore gamers tend to despise CoD drones.
