Nielsen has published its annual Top 20 Games to Watch list for the holidays, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has topped it as the game “most coveted” by 27 percent of US gamers polled.

Looking at data received from 5,000 surveyed gamers, and trolling through 417,433,251 online conversations, MW3 was followed on the list by Gears of War 3 and Madden NFL 12, both of which tied at 19 percent.

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations was next on the list, followed by Batman: Arkham City, Skyward Sword, Battlefield 3, Just Dance 3, NBA 2K12, and Need for Speed: The Run rounding out the top 10, receptively.
