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.
It’s not every day you meet a game that can top sales charts months before it hits the virtual shelves. We’re not really surprised though, this game can bend the laws of physics, so best-seller lists should be a piece of cake… (ha!)
…the rest of the charts are pretty much what you’d expect, Sid Meier’s latest beautiful spreadsheet is there, along with that impressive Swedish indie and a collection of Squeenix titles bundled up together.
#1 – Portal 2
Portal 2 draws from the award-winning formula of innovative gameplay, story, and music that earned the original Portal over 70 industry accolades and created a cult following.
The single-player portion of Portal 2 introduces a cast of dynamic new characters, a host of fresh puzzle elements, and a much larger set of devious test chambers. Players will explore never-before-seen areas of the Aperture Science Labs and be reunited with GLaDOS, the occasionally murderous computer companion who guided them through the original game.
The game’s two-player cooperative mode features its own entirely separate campaign with a unique story, test chambers, and two new player characters. This new mode forces players to reconsider everything they thought they knew about portals. Success will require them to not just act cooperatively, but to think cooperatively.

#3 – Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood
#4 – Magicka
#5 – Crysis 2
#6 – Square Enix Complete Pack
#7 – Just Cause 2
