steam sellers

PC gaming was big in 2016 and today Valve revealed the top 100 selling Steam games of 2016 based on total revenue earned.

Anyone who follows the weekly top sellers updates will recognise some of the top titles such as GTA 5 which features in every weekly list. Valve has split the top 100 into categories Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze for some reason.

The top twelve turned out to be the following in no particular order.

  • Rocket League
  • XCOM2
  • CS:GO
  • Grand Theft Auto V
  • Civilization VI
  • DOTA 2
  • Dark Souls 3
  • No Man’s Sky
  • The Division
  • The Witcher 3
  • Fallout 4
  • Total War: Warhammer

The only odd one here is No Man’s Sky because of the leaked gameplay prior to launch which indicated it may not be quite what was advertised. The next tier of Gold sellers included:

  • Dead by Daylight
  • ARMA 3
  • Call of Duty Black Ops 3
  • Rainbow Six Siege
  • Stellaris
  • ARK: Survival Evolved
  • DOOM
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Warframe
  • H1Z1 King of the Hill
  • Stardew Valley

Free to play games such as Warframe will be appearing due to the sale of DLC packs. The Silver Tier features a few titles we would have expected to have appeared little higher in the sales list, games such as Planet Coaster.

  • Rust
  • Far Cry Primal
  • Payday 2
  • SMITE
  • Europa Universalis IV
  • Skyrim
  • Subnautica
  • Hearts of Iron IV
  • Planet Coaster
  • Civilization V
  • Cities: Skylines
  • War Thunder
  • Watch Dogs 2
  • Deus Ex Mankind Divided
  • Dying Light: The Following

What these lists do show is that older games on Steam continue to sell despite the hype and marketing of new releases during 2016. You can find the full list of Bronze titles here.
