Recommended Posts

Steam.png.b12442469edb51fcee538886151850a3.pngSteam has released their top games of multiple categories from 2021 that shows their best sellers, most players, and many other stats in the PC gaming world.  These numbers only reflect games on the Steam Platform, so items from Epic Games, Battle.net, EA Origin, etc. are not factored into the mix.  Lists are presented in random order as Steam does not release exact information on most of these statistics.

It's funny that some of the games on the most played list are actually several years old. I guess that shows that a lot of games that have been released just aren't catching on enough to beat some of the classics.

This is super true!  So much is placed on graphics and visuals and gamers seem to always true to games that simply have better stories and game play over and over.  Of course, the modern focus on releasing partially complete live service games does not appear to be helping anything.
