In 2007, we may all remember the big hits in that year such as Call of Duty Modern Warfare, The Orange Box and STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl the was the beginning of the golden age for steam. this time Valve announced that they had 13 Million accounts (But remember we don't know if all of them are active). With the release of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, Steam now flourished as Modern Warfare 2 required players to install Steam if they really wanted to play it. The Steam specials also helped to contribute to Steam's rise to fame as this attracted many who were looking for good deals.
