While console gamers go mental for Modern Warfare 3, it seems PC gamers - or Steam customers at least, have their hearts set on something a little less spray-and-pray.
Elder Scrolls V: Oblivion has, at the time of writing, 267,229 concurrent players, which impressively dwarfs MW3's 64,171 gamers, which takes the second spot in Steam's current list of most played games.This has been the case since launch day, when PC Gamer reported 231,593 gamers taking their first steps into Skyrim's world, while MW3's multiplayer managed to draw in 78,161 players at the time.
Universally positive Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim reviews raised its review average on Metacritic to an astonishing 96 yesterday.
