I have a wild theory that CS:GO is #1 because it's a fun game that people enjoy playing. Crazy I know.

Do you guys think Valve also fake the user stats that show CS:GO had a peak playerbase today 10 times higher than the next most popular paid game (639,072 vs 64,958)?

Or do you think it might just be a popular game and there's no conspiracy or malpractice behind it?

I don't believe Valve did anything nefarious. More than likely the recent mass VAC bans led to enough people buying the game again to place it on Steam's Top 10 list.

I don't think Valve is being nefarious as much as looking the other way.
"Oh! You cheated! This copy of the game is banned!" *wink-wink, nudge-nudge*

If they really wanted to put a stop to this crap instead of reaping tens of millions of dollars from repeat buyers that get banned multiple times, they could IP ban or MAC address ban people.
