Cookie Clicker is on Steam(opens in new tab). I won't bore you with my own personal Cookie Clicker anecdote

because thousands of players have tales of being sucked into the cookie acquisition vortex

Basically, Cookie Clicker launched as a browser game in 2013 and is credited

along with Candy Box, for popularizing the idle/clicker genre.

It's a fiendishly habit-forming game about collecting cookies via mouse clicks,

but until now it's been hard to figure out what the public's attitude towards it really is

But that's changed now, and a mere day after its launch, Cookie Clicker has an 'Overwhelmingly Positive' rating on Steam

putting it in the same vaunted category as Half-Life 2 and Portal 2.
