The strategy title, bolstered by several recent patches, managed a third place finish, while list stalwarts World of Warcraft, Left 4 Dead, Spore and Fallout hung on for largely typical placement.
On the Direct2Drive side, the outlet's 75% off sale for Mount & Blade kept that game at the top, while Sacred 2, Battlestations: Pacific and the new Civilization IV: The Complete Edition rounded out the leading titles.

Any word on how Valve did with their latest Left 4 Dead sale? They got me hooked with the free play weekend and I bought it.
Are you on the L4D shack group?
Not yet, thanks for the heads up
All Steam Sales are and have always been confidential...
...for the public, but I'm sure Valve has that data available from themselves too. Or has Steam been worked into different entity?
