'Portal 2' victorious, 'Metro 2033' renaissance in PC download charts


Portal 2 tops the Steam Network's chart for the week ending April 26, with the
Portal + Portal 2 bundle close behind and
Portal in fifth; spooky survivalist shooter
Metro 2033 rides high on GamersGate thanks to a special sale price.

Portal's ascension is fitting, given that the Steam Network is owned and operated by Portal developer Valve Corporation.

The GamersGate daily deal knocked 75% off Metro 2033's price, halving Steam's offer in the process.

Based on a Russian novel of the same name, Metro 2033 takes note of player choices throughout the game and its ending depends on the cumulative value of those choices.

Bulletstorm returns to the top of Direct2Drive's chart. It was featured as a one-day discount on April 24, part of the retailer's month of daily deals.
