PC Sales Charts: Sales Of Iron

I'm going to look past the top PC games of the past week, and focus on a quiet achiever that's doing well on both the Steam and Direct2Drive listings: Hearts of Iron III.

It's from a long line of dry, dry strategy games, as archaic and "old school" as PC gaming gets, and look at it. It's made it onto the Steam sales charts, and made it onto the Direct2Drive charts twice.

God I love PC gamers.

    These charts a little skewed, the Indy Games packs were listed in this as of sunday afternoon, but with their dissolution after the sale have been removed.

    Whilst console gamers may be able to play title after title of mindless frat boy shooters so full of homoeroticism you could change the name and repackage it as the 1997 Batman and Robin, only PC gamers can wade through the most boring and soul sapping RTS's none to man.

    Power to the PC
