Ever since launch (http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/11/12/skyrim-reaches-nearly-250000-concurrent-steam-users-on-day-one-topples-mw3/), Skyrim‚??s pretty much monopolized Steam‚??s most-played list (and, regrettably, the Internet‚??s entire supply of memes), so positively massive numbers were pretty much a foregone conclusion. That said, damn. First up, there‚??s this rather extraordinary bit:

‚??Skyrim is the fastest selling title in Steam‚??s history‚?? said Jason Holtman, Valve‚??s director of business development (via IndustryGamers (http://www.industrygamers.com/news/skyrim-reaches-10-million-shipped-becomes-fastest-selling-steam-title-ever/)). ‚??Bethesda‚??s commitment to and understanding of the PC as a gaming platform shows in the great review scores, spectacular launch, and continued high player numbers that Skyrim has received.‚??

Impressive? Certainly. But, uh, Holtman and I apparently didn‚??t fumble through the same wonky PC UI, whose convoluted layers made about as much sense as purchasing a plane ticket to visit your next door neighbors. Still though, a grand total of 10 million units shipped (not sold) and $650 million at retail on all platforms only serve to hammer home an obvious point: Skyrim‚??s kind of a big deal. Something tells me Tiny Tim the crippled Mudcrab is gonna have a magical Christmas after all. Well, until someone shouts him off a cliff, anyway.
