Could Left 4 Dead's star be finally on the wane? If you look at the retail sales charts for the week ending February 14, you'd say "yes", the game finally dropping from the top 10.

But that's precisely why we don't just look at the retail charts. While the game made way on NPD's charts for the usual procession of Blizzard/EA titles (the surprisingly high debut of FEAR 2 notwithstanding), on the Steam charts, it's still going strong at #2.

And look at Dawn of War II go!
