Halo 3: ODST and Modern Warfare 2 are the most-anticipated games in the US at the moment.

This is according to data compiled by OTX/Gameplan Insights, reports Gamasutra.

Polling 1,000 U.S. gamers, the data on purchase and pre-order intent showed both to be the highest on the anticipation meter for all pre-E3 games.

“At the top of the charts, Halo 3: ODST and Modern Warfare 2 continue to dominate the 2009 releases, while God of War III and Final Fantasy XIII are the current PS3 headliners for 2010,” said OTX analyst Nick Williams.

“With the national spotlight on the video game industry this week, it should be interesting to see how gamers react to the big announcements at E3. Expect to see a lot of movement in the rankings when next month’s GamePlan charts are released.”

Gamasutra has a list of the Top 25 at the moment. Go look before the newest Barbie title changes it.
