Why are these forums so dead?
Steam has millions of users, and barely nothing ever happens here. Why?

Plenty happens here every day. I wouldn't have over 3000 posts (over 5000 if you include game hubs) since September if they were dead!

People come here to play games, not post in a forum. They chat through the chat system with friends and post in forums if they need something. Others post to help out when they can.

The novelty of these sections kind of ran off. And people mostly uses steam just for playing. (As Totoro mentioned)

I think I know what he's getting at..The forums are really excellent for talking about the game you love...and people do, but I've noticed that new faces are few and far between, don't you think? I see the same guys all the time, where's everyone else?? (slightly rhetorical)

The suppose the big posters are still using the old steam forums. I still use the old forums from time to time myself.

There are also hundreds of game hub forums. I think it creates a very large spread for the people.

I haven't used the chat system yet, I'm still looking for more friends on steam since I just recently got more in to PC gaming.

I think people come to post in forums, 'and' play games, don't they?
