Steam, best of 2018

Steam Tallies up the Best and Brightest Games of 2018

As another year draws to a close, it’s time we take a retrospective gander at the games that stood out from the rest this year on Steam.

From titles both old and new that dominated the charts, to brand new releases, to the most played, to games that flourished and fledged from early access to full release, garnering thriving communities in the process – it’s time we celebrate them all.

Top Sellers this year including sales, in-game transactions, and DLC are:

  • Rocket League
  • Grand Theft Auto V
  • The Elder Scrolls Online
  • Far Cry 5
  • Warframe
  • Dota 2
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
  • Monster Hunter: World
  • Civilization VI
  • Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds
  • Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

The top 10 most played titles this year:

  • Realm Royale
  • Monster Hunter: World
  • Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
  • Grand Theft Auto V
  • Dota 2
  • Warframe
  • Path of Exile

The top 12 “Early Access Grads” that rocked 2018:

  • Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr
  • Chinese Parents
  • Subnautica
  • Bless Online
  • Northgard
  • Rimeworlds
  • Dead Cells
  • Conan Exiles
  • Kenshi
  • Rust
  • Wallpaper Engine

Best selling VR titles:

  • OrbusVR
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR
  • Pavlov VR
  • Fallout 4 VR
  • Arizona Sunshine
  • GORN
  • Hot Dogs, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades
  • Job Simulator
  • VR Kanojo
  • Onward
  • Beat Saber

And finally, the top-grossing releases of this year:

  • Disappearing of Gensokyo
  • Railway Empire
  • Trailmakers
  • Iconoclasts
  • My Time At Portia
  • Battle Royale Trainer
  • SOS
  • Granado Espada
  • Celeste
  • Staxel
  • DRAGON BALL FighterZ

Personally, I found quite a few surprises in there, but it’s always nice to see titles like Celeste, which recently sold 500,000 copies, and My Time At Portia get some statistical recognition. With the Steam Winter Sale in full effect until January 3rd, it’s a great time to soak up the last of this year with some of Steam’s highest rated games.
