So there was a Steam data leak showing player counts for various games.

This is mighty interesting because it shows what people are actually playing vs. what people believe is being played.

@Are0h I kind of get why they want to obscure some of that stuff, but it's actually really neat to see actual real data instead of "it SEEMS like people are playing X rather than Y."

@greyduck Yup. It refutes a lot of what people say about what is selling, which highlights the preferential treatment a lot of games get on that particular platform.

@Are0h *nod nod* I love when we get a chance to cut through the horse-manure.

@greyduck It happens a lot more than people think.

It’s pretty remarkable how many ‘truths’ people hold onto is just subjective drivel repeated over and over again.
