Steam Users Spend Most Time Playing Dota, Counter-Strike, Team Fortress 2

New data gathering API reveals playing habits on Valve's digital platform.

Steam Spy is a tool developed by Sergey Galyonkin, a programmer who developed by web API as a means to provide information about the gaming habits of Steam users to indie developers, journalists, students, and "all parties interested in PC gaming and its current state of affairs."
According to the data, the top three games played by users over the two weeks preceding the publishing of this article are Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Team Fortress 2. The rankings were calculated based on total time spent playing each game.
Galyonkin notes on the Steam Spy site the API "extrapolates data from a limited number of user profiles and thus isn't 100% correct." Although it pulls data every minute, visualisations of data on the site are updated once a day.

Somehow, not owning/having downloaded or having played any of those titles makes me feel happy.

Pretty useless efforts in any case, Twitch is a far more accurate view of gamer interest.

I guess I am not cool either... never played (or installed) any of them.

Again, this does not work if your profile is private... so probably not very accurate...

According to new Win10 privacy options, soon MS will know better - expect 'games for real gamers' from M$ soon...

I've never played or installed any of those games either, although Dota's fantasy setting does look interesting.

Then again, with the exception of fighting games, multiplayer dedicated titles aren't really my thing.

I have all these games for completeness of course, I've only played Team Fortress 2 a bit.

I booted the others up to set the display and audio settings is all.

I'm not a big MOBA person but don't mind collecting them
