2) how are they 100% accurate when they do NOT have data pre-2003, particularly when CS WAS at it HIGHEST peak of popularity?

I'm saying there's [probably] more people out there who would consider themselves fans of TF2 than CS (or in other words, more unique TF2 players per month than CS)


We've already proved you wrong, at this point you're just being willfully ignorant.

Lets go with the 100% accurate Xfire rankings http://puu.sh/9DQTx/3709f50cbc.png

http://classic.xfire.com/genre/fps/first-person_shooter/


2 questions:-
1) how are they obtaining their data?
2) how are they 100% accurate when they do NOT have data pre-2003, particularly when CS WAS at it HIGHEST peak of popularity?


1. From whoever has Xfire installed on their computer >.>
2. The 100% comment was sarcasm. Xfire keeps track of the historical high though. http://classic.xfire.com/games/cs/Counter-Strike/ shows CS was the #1 game on Xfire back at the start of 2004.
Really the only thing Xfire shows now is that a lot of people still play COD2 and 4, which people bought at retail before Steam became huge.
I only have Xfire installed because of COD2, its what everyone uses to chat with if they don't want to use the server chat.

I didnt realise they have numbers from times before it existed:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xfire
The first version of the Xfire desktop client was code-named Scoville,[5] which was first developed in 2003 by Garrett Blythe, Chris Kirmse, Mike Judge, and others.

CS will always be the most popular FPS game on PC. Xfire doesn't come close to being accurate in any regard.

Here's what's lolzworthy about Xfire: CS:GO Players Per Day: 1,636

Steam: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive: 123,862

Yep Xfire is deftly the bes way to determine the most popular FPS game.
