Which Xbox 360 games did we play the most during 2012? It's a question that most of you could predict the answer to with ease, and it's a shame that said answer doesn't hold a few unexpected surprises.

That's right ladies and gents, the most played game on the Xbox 360 last year was Call of Duty: Black Ops Ii. In a list dominated by shooters and sports sims the only real surprise is the fact that Minecraft managed to take a top 5 spot outside of the Arcade specific list. Thankfully the top XBLA titles have more variety about them and it's nice to see games such as Fez and The Walking Dead making the top 20. 

Take a look at the full lists below to see if your favourite game made the cut.
