Ars Technica recently started posting a series on their "Steam Gauge" project. They're sampling Steam Community pages to generate sales and playtime data and coming up with some interesting results.

Introducing Steam Gauge
The top 6 most-played games (Dota 2, TF2, CS:S, CS, Civ5, Skyrim) have as much total combined playtime as *every other title on Steam put together*.

Addressing questions and concerns
This link is particularly interesting since it also lists the 100 most-played games on Steam since 2009. AA3 is at position 35, behind other F2P titles TF2 at 2, Alien Swarm at 13, and Blacklight Retribution at 28. A game needs to get over 1,000,000 players to break into the top 100 list.

Do strong reviews lead to strong sales?
Short answer: yes, but it's not as dramatic as you may expect and there are plenty of exceptions to the trend.
