Godzilla fans enjoyed the recent film, but will they feel the same way about the new video game?

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Steam Doubles Sales Seven Years Straight

Posted on Friday, January 6 @ 10:45:35 Eastern by

What exactly does it take to be called "bigger than jesus?" Do you have to sell a shit ton of stuff? Do you have to have rabid fans the world over? Do you have to have a physically larger presence than Jesus himself?

Gabe and Valve have all those basis covered as they announce today that Steam now plays host to 40 million accounts and 1,800 games with 2011 year-over-year sales doubling last years digits. During the ever-popular Steam holiday sales, 5 million simultaneous users were logged on at the same time.

Were you one of them?

In addition to all the astounding data above, Valve gave further reason to drop your jaw. In 2011 ALONE, Valve served up 780 PETABYTES of data to consumers. That's double 2010.

2012 and the future seem to be geared for even bigger Steam figures as the company is preparing to launch "Big Picture Mode" which will see Steam support for even more screens in your home. [Insert Valve-time joke here]
