The most played online, that is. Nielsen, the company that seems to be monitoring everything these days (TV just wasn’t enough), has just released their “Most Played PC Games” list. This covers the period January to October of 2008.

To no one’s surprise, WoW leads the pack by a very wide margin. And naturally, The Sims is on the list, too. Interestingly, Diablo 2 came in at #7. Which makes you wonder how the big MMOGs are really doing.

Then again, Nielsen didn’t explain how they came up with the numbers for the list. So, after the number one spot, I’d approach this compilation with a little caution. Anyway, check it out and see what you think.
