    Yeah those steam stats are impressive. I just fear for VD's sanity when people from STEAM start to play The Age of Decadence and ask questions on the forums.

    Yeah, when they got on Steam, I lost all my hope for a bunch of bawww and drama after a failed release.

    actually 60k isn't that much when you realize how many users Steam has.. 60k is a drop in the ocean

    Considering how hidden, slow, dumb and un-intuictive the steam greenlight system is, 60k is a MASSIVE feat.

    From ITS forum, 46,219 no votes.

    So that leaves about 53k abstainers.

    Voting NO is such a dick move, unless the developer is known to lie or the game a unplayable bugfest...

    Fucker's clearly stealing ideas from Elder Scrolls, I would've voted NO as well.

    From what I'm told, a "no" vote doesn't actually do anything.

    I have voted no on 700 hundred things, there are a ton of trash entries in greenlight and I felt that I was pretty fair in my evaluations. Admittedly, I might have been a bit hypercritical towards the umpteenth or so super meatboy clone around the 500-600 mark in the process of voting on all the games. Oh and I voted no on a ton of free 2 play mmos because I don't see why those need to be on steam in the first place.

    Yeah, but there isn't a count taken or have any effect on what happens, only the number of "yes" matter.

    Yep. Valve doesn't care how many don't want to play it, as long as enough people do.
