I always enjoy winding down the year with a look at Steam's list of best-selling games. Besides high-profile new releases like Cyberpunk 2077 and surprise indie hits like Phasmophobia, 2020 was another year of gaming dominated by old flames that we just can't seem to break away from. These were the "top 100 games as measured by gross revenue" on Steam in 2020: Note: These games are grouped up by Steam, but I've listed the individual games in each group alphabetically. Platinum Among Us Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Cyberpunk 2077 Destiny 2 Doom Eternal Dota 2 Fall Guy: Ultimate Knockout Grand Theft Auto V Monster Hunter: World PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Rainbow Six Siege Red Dead Redemption II Gold Ark: Survival Evolved Baldur's Gate 3 Borderlands 3 Crusader Kings III Dead by Daylight Halo: The Master Chief Collection Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord Phasmophobia Sea of Thieves Sid Meier's Civilization VI The Elder Scrolls Online Warframe Silver Assassin's Creed Odyssey Black Desert Online Cities: Skylines Euro Truck Simulator 2 Final Fantasy XIV Online Hades Microsoft Flight Simulator Path of Exile Planet Zoo Raft Rust Stellaris Team Fortress 2 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Total War: Warhammer II War Thunder Bronze Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition American Truck Simulator Apex Legends Arma 3 Call of Duty: Black Ops III Command & Conquer Remastered Collection Conan Exiles Dark Souls III DayZ Death Stranding Deep Rock Galactic Divinity: Original Sin 2 Don't Starve Together Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Dying Light Europa Universalis IV Fallout 4 Fallout 76 Far Cry 5 Farming Simulator 19 FIFA 21 Football Manager 2021 Grounded GTFO Half-Life: Alyx Hearts of Iron IV Horizon Zero Dawn Human: Fall Flat Hunt: Showdown Lords Mobile Marvel's Avengers Metro Exodus NBA 2K20 NBA 2K21 No Man's Sky Ori and the Will of the Wisps Persona 4 Golden Pummel Party Remnant: From the Ashes Resident Evil 3 RimWorld Risk of Rain 2 Satisfactory Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Smite Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Star Wars: Squadrons Stardew Valley Tabletop Simulator Temtem Terraria The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim The Forest The Hunter: Call of the Wild The Sims 4 Total War: Three Kingdoms Wallpaper Engine Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem World of Warships Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links I'm also fascinated by Steam's "most-played" section – the games with the highest peak concurrent players in 2020. Cyberpunk and Among Us are represented on the over-200,000-players-at-once list as you might expect, but so is Life is Strange 2. I'm genuinely surprised to see that name show up. Another interesting tidbit via Daniel Ahmad: a ton of us set aside time during the holidays for some (okay more than "some") PC gaming. This year, Steam had 23 million peak concurrent users on Christmas day – a notable step up from 2019 (15.8 million users), 2018 (15.3M), and 2017 (16.2M). If you're curious, Steam also has a spotlight on new releases, Early Access grads, the best of VR, and controller games – "the year's top controller games as measured by daily active controller players." You do you, Steam. You do you.
