TorrentFreak has recently released a list of the most pirated games of 2011 on various platforms; and looking at the list, it would be an understatement to say that a lot of games were pirated this year.

Unsurprisingly, PC games were pirated the most. The list of top pirated games is:

1. Crysis 2 (3,920,000 downloads)
2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (3,650,000 downloads)
3. Battlefield 3 (3,510,000 downloads)
4. FIFA 12 (3,390,000 downloads)
5. Portal 2 (3,240,000 downloads)

For the Wii platform, the list is:

1. Super Mario Galaxy 2 (1,280,000 downloads)
2. Mario Sports Mix (1,090,000 downloads)
3. Xenoblade Chronicles (950,000 downloads)
4. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean (870,000 downloads)
5. FIFA 12 (860,000 downloads)

And on the Xbox 360m, the list is:

1. Gears of War 3 (890,000)
2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (830,000)
3. Battlefield 3 (760,000)
4. Forza Motorsport 4 (720,000)
5. Kinect Sports: Season Two (690,000)

So there you have it. This gives you an idea of just how widespread game piracy is. But this is far from being a definite list, as there are other ways of piracy that are much difficult to track. And if you are wondering about PS3’s exclusion, it could be because the piracy figures are insignificant enough to ignore, but more likely, it could be because PS3 downloads are harder to track since illegal games are downloaded directly to the system.
