Hello I have been on xbox live for a couple of years now and I only have 4 friends and there my mates and I think thats sad so what is the average ammount of friends. I dont own many games with a big online mode but it still be nice to have more friends to help complete games I have or games I might buy. My cousin has more friends then me and he doesn play xbox any more so I fancy a laugh I wonder if someone has loads and if someone has worse then me.

Don't just add people just for the sake of adding people. Every time they log on you'll get the ding and you'll go woot achievement, then go doh friend logging in.

I have only 3. But only because I only add/accept FR's if I know them well enough from either here or real life. :)

I don't like adding many people, in fact I've recently deleted a load of people who I don't regularly play with. Some I just forgot who they are (it happens) and others quite frankly just shouldn't have been on my list in the first place.

But like another poster said, don't just add for the sake of adding. Meet some new people here, get to know them a little better, and then add them.

I've made some really good freinds over the years (some from this site, others in real life) but I clear my freinds list out once a month...if I haven't played with you in a month...DELETED.

I have 4 family members and 6 friends that I play with on Live. Don't get into online mp very often; mostly games with family and close friends. I was lucky to find someone on this site to play with. It really only takes one person who regularly plays with you to make the gaming experience much more fun!

Playing with someone you know, or even just talking to them while playing, is so much more funner.

It dont matter. I got around 40 friends but i know all of them, except for the few that helped me out on this site.

I've maxed out at 100 before, but on average I keep it under 92.

At the moment, I have around 88-90, 20 of which I know personally, and the rest I have played with at least a few times, and would play with again.

I also dont accept random friend requests, or add anyone just for the sake of it.

I've around 95 friends, most of which are boosting buddies, real life friends, or just complete random people that I've met and befriended online.

I do list clean-outs every month or two.

I added my friends from college just to keep in touch with them. Everyone else are people I've added for online games and have been to lazy to remove.

I have about 75. I add everyone, but I am prone to remove people who aren't online ever or if they turn out to be jerks.

I have 20 or so friends. Most of them are people I know in real life, so I don't delete them. A couple are from this site, and others are people who I have played with online.

Funny enough, I had a clean out earlier today. Was up over 70, but now I'm back down to 66. Most are people I know from the intertubes.

I have around 45, give or take a few on either side.
I regularly clear my list, just leaving the people I play with/talk to in a Live party regularly, plus the IRL people.

Right now most of my list are Dance Central players who I compete against for high score. I also have kept all the people I played 1vs100 on a regualr basis with.

i had around 50 a while ago but trimmed it down to people i know/definately would play with again so about 25 now.

its no great accomplishment having heaps of live friends. i could easily amass 100 in less than a couple hours if i really wanted. half that if my gamertag was
'xxx sexygirl xxx' or something like that:p

i think i have the max. not sure. maybe around 80? But i dont delete hahah i just let people remove me. I think, from this site, i have only added and played with 2 people? and from my friends list only like 8 are actual gaming friends. 5 i know in my life. other 3 live out of town. Its not bad to have to many or to little.

I have 6 friends on my list and one of them is my son. I play with just one friend all the time. And playing or chatting with a friends does make the gaming more fun but don't just add people just because. I did that and it turns out that they just wanted to talk dirty with me. :confused:

I have about 80; a combination of people I know in person and a few people here on X360A who's gamertags I recognize well enough to not go WHOOZAT when they log on. About 30 of them are people I actually know in person, though. The rest are X360A kids.

The only thing I hate about having so much is when my gamer instincts go ZOMG ACHIEVEMENT when someone signs on.
It bugs me so much. D:

The only friends I have are people I added from here and people I know personally. I don't play much multiplayer though so I don't have a packed friends list.

I have only 3. But only because I only add/accept FR's if I know them well enough from either here or real life. :)

+1

I have about 95 I think now but I know them all from real life or people I work with etc and play cod with. I dont accept any randoms normally unless I wanna boost a certain game but thats very rare

I usually have 98 -100 mostly because of boosting purposes.

I've got 86 at the moment.

There are some friends from work, some family, my wife.

There are a lot of people that I've met online, either in games where multiplayer is near dead so I want to know when I can get a game online, or games that are more fun with someone you know isn't going to be a total idiot about winning/losing.

I think I need to have a clear out though, as a lot of them I don't seem to remember why I've added them.

I've got like 10 rl friends, and 2 xbox people that are my achievement buddies. I've had lots of others on it but they never talk or anything so they got the axe.
