33. Re: Steam Top 10 Nov 26, 2012, 01:55 jacobvandy
 
Well, Dishonored is a Steamworks game, so no matter where you buy it, it activates there, and the gameplay stats are tracked. The public stats previously linked aren't perfect, as they show only concurrent players and not the total, but they do give you a pretty good comparison as to a game's popularity compared to that of others.

Being a single-player game with relatively little replay value, Dishonored was at its peak the day it came out, and is now a bit below 1/4 of its all-time record (which was about 20k, barely putting it on the top 10 IIRC). Of course, the numbers this week take into account a resurgence of players brought on by massive discount and new sales, so even that is a bit of a peak lately...

For comparison, Assassin's Creed 3, which is not a Steamworks game, and so the stats don't reflect that entire playerbase, peaked this weekend at about 15k.
