PC Sales Charts: Return Of The Living Psychonauts

Illustration for article titled PC Sales Charts: Return Of The Living Psychonauts

The PC charts were last week dominated by the likes of Mass Effect 2, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Star Trek Online. No surprises there. So we'll instead focus our admiration on Tim Schafer's Psychonauts instead.


The platformer was on sale for $2 during this time, and made it to #8 on the Steam charts. I will now remind you that the Steam charts are determined on revenue, not units sold, so Psychonauts obviously sold a ton, spreading good will and cheer to those with the foresight to see what they'd been missing all this time.

As a general rule, when Steam discounts a game to the price of a chocolate bar, I am pretty much guaranteed to buy it as long as I've heard anything remotely good about it.

Putting a game with as much praise as Psychonauts at that price literally robs me of free will. I don't even think about the decision to purchase it.
