A big part of making an online game fun is making sure the population density's right.
I think it depends, I only play a couple of titles on Live, and Halo 3 the most. Most of the guys I play regularly with also tend to stick to Halo or one or two other games.
From what I've seen, most people tend to play online games until they hit a certain level where the competition steps up a notch or seven (as all games do past a certain point) and they end up playing against those who are consistently better than them, then they stop playing rather than persevering to improve and start on another game.
Edit: Bad Wolf, if you're looking for some people to party up with if you have Halo 3, PM me on live suprisingly my gamer tag in GaotboysRevenge...
