“Massive Effect” or “Dragon Dominance”

Top steam downloads for last week:

  1. Dragon Age: Origins Digital Deluxe Edition.
  2. Dragon Age: Origins.
  3. Left 4 Dead 2.
  4. Borderlands.
  5. Torchlight.
  6. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
  7. Football Manager 2010.
  8. Mass Effect.
  9. Shattered Horizon.
  10. Aion Standard Edition and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

Dragon Age went all Grey Warden on every competitor’s ass, it seems. But what really stood out to me was Mass Effect making it to the top-ten list some two odd years past its release. Talk about mileage!

Perhaps BioWare’s latest release sparked interest in the old title, much like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare made it to the list the same week ModernWarfare 2 was being released to the masses. Whatever the cause, the fact that a space (not everyone’s cup of tea) SRPG (not everyone’s cup of tea either) can continue to be successful years past release is a testament to stellar production values and the longevity of the title.

    Lets also not underestimate what digital distribution via Steam, and promotion of a Mass Effect sale on Steam can do for a game. That has to play a big part (above and beyond the quality of the title) as to why it sells so well given the game’s age.

    I’m considering playing Mass Effect through again simply because ME2 will allow players to load savegames from the first installment to continue on. I have too many games on my plate right now for that though, with Torchlight and DA:O… and Assassin’s Creed 2 coming out next week. So much gaming goodness!
