Steam has released their top selling games for 2017 and while most of the games are pretty obvious winners, not all launched last year…
Let’s be real, 2017 was a pretty decent year for gaming. The Nintendo Switch launched to critical acclaim, we also received two pretty banging Nintendo titles along with it. Hell, it was a darn good year for Nintendo. We also had games like Horizon: Zero Dawn, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and Cuphead.
Looking at Steam’s top selling list however, you’d be surprised to find that half of the games didn’t even launch in 2017.
In amongst the platinum tier, there are some 2017 releases, like Ghost Recon Wildlands, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Divinity Original Sin 2, and Ark: Survival Evolved, and… wait… that’s it?! Two of these games were in Early Access up until the last month or so… Crikey.
Populating the rest of the Platinum list are games from 2015, 2013, and even 2012, like Rainbow Six Siege, Warframe, and Counter Strike: Global Offensive. Elsewhere in the list we’ve got the Gold and Silver tiers, populated by titles such as Cuphead, Call of Duty: WW2, Dark Souls 3, and Fallout 4, Planet Coaster, Resident Evil 7, and Sniper Elite 4.
Finally, the Bronze tier, which has titles such as The Forest, Football Manager 17, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, and Prey. Overall, it’s a pretty decent list, and while the Steam Winter Sale is in full swing you can pick up most of these 100 titles up for a hefty discount.
