Call of Duty: Black Ops takes this year’s top honors for most pirated game of 2010.  Torrent Freak released it’s annual report on which games were pirated the most, and Call of Duty: Black Ops was downloaded 4.27 million times on PC, and 930,000 times for the Xbox 360.

Activision outdid last year’s Modern Warfare 2, which also took home the honor of most pirated game at over 4.1 million downloads.

Other honorable mentions:  Super Mario Galaxy 2 was downloaded 1,470,000 times Alan Wake 1,140,000 times, and Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption was downloaded 1,060,000 times.  By far the PC has a piracy rate that is almost 3 – 1 when compared to the statistics for Wii and Xbox 360.

And lets not forget about the PlayStation 3, hackers have recently cracked that console to run pirated software as well. Torrent Freak did not release numbers for the PS3 downloads.  You can see the full list here.
