Well, TF2 is the most played game right now and since it's free it has gone wild.

I dont think the sale of Skyrim is effected by the TF2 item or rage for that matter, it would be #1 no matter what.

Who cares it's great. Good games + tf2 item = win.

Skyrim and Rage being up top is because they're highely anticipated games. Now Brink being in #5 slot may be partly because of the promo item, the rest being that its 50% off, part of the Quake con pack, and the free play weekend.

There is some crazy deal synergy on steam today... preorder skyrim get TF2 hat and 20 dollars off of quakecon pack which is already at a good price.. If you had 100 dollars to drop on gaming today is a good day to do it. Quakecon pack has some very very nice titles in it as well, apart from the old eye cancer inducing ancient doom and quake titles.. You get new vegas with all DLC, morrowind, oblivion and brink.

I find this trend more sad than anything.

A lot of gamers on Steam don't buy games because of the actual game but instead because of other reasons whether it be promotional items for competently different games or as a status symbol of simply owning it on Steam.

PC GAMERS Y U NO CARE ABOUT THE GAMES?!

Same reason why people give a crap about achievements/stats/w.e., it's about enlarging the epeen rather than playing games for games.

I care! I have TF2 but I don't play it (just not for me), and could care less about the items.

People were gonna buy Rage and Skyrim anyway. Quakecon items just made people order them this week.

I didn't order them since I'm going to college though and I'm only taking a netbook with me.

Besides, I would get Skyrim when it's cheaper (GOTY edition with all DLC for 40 USD), Rage I would get right away.

No idea why people preorder games months in advance on Steam. You can preorder a single day before a game comes out, and you'll still get the bonuses.

Why do you think TF2 became free to play?

I haven't pre-ordered From Dust because of the mask in TF2. I just pre-ordered it because it's an epic game. Period.

P.S: Also bought it because it inmediatly reminded me of Populous: The beginning somehow.
P.P.S: If they bring Populous to Steam, I'm surely buying it (It'd be the 4th time I buy this game, but it deserves it. Epic game is epic.)

I might not find reason in buying a game solely for an unlockable, but if other people want to at least they are supporting the industry, especially when they offer hats with smaller indie games.
