Wow, once again CS:GO isn't only in the top 10, it's number one.

Must have been that last wave of VAC bans... I have to wonder how profitable it is for Valve, banning CS cheaters and having them rebuy every month or so.

By the looks of it, Extremely profitable.

Did they ever patch Arkham Knight into an acceptable game or is it still a shit show of bugs and poor optimization?

Friend of mine says you NEED 16 GB of RAM to make it run properly. Damned if I'm upgrading RAM when everything else in my library runs just fine with 8 GB, including Witcher 3, which is arguably a superior looking game.

I never understood the love for shadow of mordor and im a complete tolkien junky....I played about 6 hours worth and felt like I was playing a rip off of Arkham Knight.

Really dull scenery, the main story arc was pretty meh, sort of wished they had just done the story of the fall of lindon and the creation of the rings. At least there would have been some variation in landscape.

I've been playing it with no problems, and I only have 8mb ram and a 780Ti I went with the default settings the game suggested though, and it's not ultra or even high, but it still looks pretty damn good. It's worth the $10 that I paid for the game, anyways lol

Hmmm...the problem with me is I'm going to want to go in and tweak and increase the graphics settings. Not that I wouldn't mess around to see what I could do in any case, but I'm still on my Witcher 3 run through and have the two expansions to do after that. So I'm not in a huge hurry. I'll catch it next sale.

How soon before CS:GO is excluded from the sales list so that Valve can avoid inconvenient questions?

I doubt they care; I could have phrased that better, ie: what percentage of their profits is purely from CS:GO sales? Probably not a whole lot, but not insignificant either. I am curious, but not outraged or ready to protest or something.

Nothing is illegal here(as far as I know), and cheaters should be banned. I am just amazed these same cheaters go back and buy the game again, and/or make new accounts and buy the game again, etc. Surely people are sick of CS by now? Or is the weapon skin trade that lucrative?

Not sure I understand the owners graph, but if it is what I think it is and since csgo is always in the top 10 and since valve gets all the profits from a sale, I bet it is a whole lot of demp.

Well I do have 16GBs of ram so I guess I should be safe. Just finished up Origins, which was enjoyable. I mean it's pretty much the same formula every game, but I'll be damned if it isn't fun beating the crap out of criminals as Batman.

Item trading is pretty lucrative. There are items selling for hundreds of dollars. CS:GO crate keys are also a standard currency for game trading.

I'm on a GTX 970 with 16 GB of RAM and it's running at 40-60 fps. That's at 1080p, on High with all of the bells and whistles.

I think CS:GO is #1 in part because you can make a lot of money from selling cards, especial certain rare ones, on the Community Market. 4 of the Top 10 go for as much as $436 a piece.

#2 StatTrak™ Karambit | Doppler (Minimal Wear)... Starting at: $436.01
#4 StatTrak™ Flip Knife | Lore (Minimal Wear)... Starting at: $426.10
#9 Karambit | Crimson Web (Minimal Wear)... Starting at: $415.44
#10 StatTrak™ Karambit | Doppler (Factory New).... Starting at: $415.44

Been having a blast with Mad Max this weekend - put 10 hours in already. Really surprised by the quality of it, from the weighty driving physics to the tight fighting to the eye popping graphics and world design. Well worth getting it while 75% off.
