You’d Be Interested to Know Top Games By Current Player Count?

I just happened to notice that Steam offers detailed statistics about which games people play. For example, I can see that 265 people (Steam users) are currently playing World of Goo. I can also see that 942 is playing Plants vs. Zombies. 1,771 Torchlight. 7,008 Garry’s mod. 43,478 Counter-Strike (which is just insane if you think about this a bit). And then finally, 50,518 are playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Multiplayer)

In case you want to do some sort of market research, the Steam stats system might come handy.

  1. I guess the real numbers are higher as not everyone are online for SP games.

  2. Nice! I think that is actually a new thing, they re-did their statistics stuff recently.

  3. The fact that Counter Strike is still in such use is still amazing! I’m asking myself what’s the driving force behind its success?

  4. I was just thinking about this. VoilĂ , here it is, thanks.
