Crysis 2 scored almost 4 million BitTorrent downloads and captured the title of the most pirated PC game of 2011.
According to TorrentFreak, Crysis 2 ended the year with 3.92 million illegal downloads, followed by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 with 3.65 million and Battlefield 3 with 3.51 million.
The popularity award on the Xbox 360 goes to Gears of war 3 with 890,000 downloads, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 with 830,000 and Battlefield 3 with 760,000. On the Wii, Super Mario Galaxy 2 ended up at 1.28 million downloads, Mario Sports Mix at 1.09 million, and Xenoblade Chronicles at 950,000. TorrentFreak did not list pirated games for the PS3 as their number was too low to be shown in BitTorrent's download charts.
Despite the substantial number of downloaded games, TorrentFreak noted that the top titles in each category saw a decline of downloads over 2010.
