With only a few days between us and the end of 2011, we have the list of the top most pirated games of the year. The list of the top pirated games comes by way of TorrentFreak and covers the PC, Xbox 360, and Wii. The top pirated game in the PC category was Crysis 2. That game was leaked ahead of the official launch and pirated mercilessly.

Crysis 2 was apparently downloaded 4 million times by the end of the year. The second most pirated game was Modern Warfare 3 with 3.65 million ripped off copies. Rounding out the top 5 are Battlefield 3, FIFA 12 and Portal 2. The most pirated games on the Wii include Super Mario Galaxy 2, Mario Sports Mix, Xenoblade Chronicles, Lego Pirates of the Caribbean, and FIFA 12.

On the Xbox, the most pirated game was Gears of War 3 followed by Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, Forza 4, and Kinect Sports: Season 2. The number of games pirated adds up really quickly. The cut off for these numbers was December 30, 2011.
