Each week, gamers around the world log onto digital distribution platform Steam, to get their latest gaming fix, and every week, playerattack lets you know which games were the most popular.
Given that the #1 game this week is exactly what we all predicted (no small feat, well done Treyarch), it’s time to focus on #2 and the other numbers. Fits of nostalgia have seen a revisit to a certain citrus-flavoured box, while a possible backlash at protestors results in an indie darling popping up, meatily, at #7.
#1 – Call of Duty:
The biggest first-person action series of all time and the follow-up to last year’s blockbuster Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 returns with Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Call of Duty: Black Ops will take you behind enemy lines as a member of an elite special forces unit engaging in covert warfare, classified operations, and explosive conflicts across the globe.
