I would really like it if we were able to view statistics on games like how many people own the game, how often do they play it, on any given day how many people are playing it, things like that. I find it quite frustrating that I buy a game that looks really fun just to find out that hardly anyone plays online ex. Greed Corp, Toy Solders.

Which means that any game not listed has less than 500ish players and wouldn't really be worth picking up for the online component unless you know people who own the game as well or you hang out in the forum section of that game.

I think both of you raise good points.
If it's not in the top 100, its near enough dead, so don't expect many to join you for multiplayer.
Even so, It'd be nice to get stats for every game. They're all being tracked, so why not reveal it all instead of the select few?
