PC game download charts collected on January 10 show the Call of Duty: Black Ops juggernaut continues to plough on, topping Steam's list, while upcoming role-playing MMOs DC Universe Online and RIFT make a dent in Direct2Drive's top five.

Steam showcases remnants from its huge holiday sale in the form of Neverwinter Nights 2, GTA IV, Left 4 Dead 2 and Mafia II; Good Old Games' chart remains unchanged from the previous week.

Direct2Drive's chart stands alone in being populated predominantly by pre-orders.

DC Universe Online is Sony's latest crack at the Massively Multiplayer Online genre, this time with licensed comic book heroes and villains, while RIFT is a promising upcoming entry to the same genre but in a World of Warcraft-esque setting.

Then, of course, there's Dragon Age II, a single-player swords and sorcery epic building on the series' previous success.

GamersGate promotes interest in the ArmA series, while Impulse's own label regulars ( Elemental and Sins of a Solar Empire) occupy the site's top two positions once again.
