What’s been the most popular on Steam lately? Let’s check out the Top 10 titles that players from around the world reach for!
Valve created Steam in 2003. The platform was established as a digital content distribution channel before other game stores were established. Since then, Steam has grown into a platform for thousands of creators and publishers to deliver content and establish direct relationships with customers. The Steam community is home to tens of millions of gamers worldwide and nearly 30,000 big-budget games, indie games and everything in between – sold on a store that often hosts cash-saving promotions on the most popular (and not only) titles.
Steam maintains its own statistics and presents them in the so-called Steam Quotes. Introduced last year, they replace the old stats page and present much more information than before. The new bestseller lists rank games based on total revenue from all sources, including DLC and in-game transactions. This gives us a fuller picture of the games players are interested in and continue to play. This new revenue calculation method is also rolling out to various toplists on the Steam store, including the Bestsellers tab on the Steam homepage and the Genre and Tag pages.
Steam Charts – a summary of the most popular games
One of the most popular, independent services that deals with the presentation of data from Steam is Steam Charts. presents data downloaded directly from the Steam platform using a special API provided by Valve, is in no way associated with the Steam platform or the company that runs it. The site is owned and operated by James Gray. However, it is one of the most important and popular tools to check what players from around the world play and which titles available on Steam are the most popular.
Steam Charts is also a very useful game search engine and the ability to look at more extensive data. What did the statistics look like in the selected period for a specific title? Does anyone else play it, how many people have played it recently, and how has the number of players been in the last 30 days, last month, and how do these numbers compare to other games? We will learn everything from the search engine. Just enter the title – e.g. Witcher. We will get feedback on all titles with this name. By clicking on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we will find out how many players have played the third Witcher in recent hours and how historically the numbers and statistics related to this title are.
What are the most popular games? Steam Charts
Steam Charts may differ from the date and time the site was viewed. Players like to surprise and choose titles that do not come from the biggest developers in the world, but have something about them that will attract millions of people. The following lists are from Friday, May 19 and are as follows:
The results are impressive, especially since the game from Valve is the leader. Counter-strike: Global Offensive needs no introduction. In the list, however, the presence of not a game, but an application available on Steam is surprising. This Wallpaper Engine. The program allows you to set animated wallpapers on the Windows desktop. Various types of animated wallpapers are supported, including 3D and 2D animations, websites, videos, and even some apps. Choose an existing wallpaper or create your own and share it on the Steam Workshop! Plus, you can use the free Wallpaper Engine companion app for Android to bring your favorite wallpapers to Android devices and have them with you at all times.
Steam Charts – record game results
It is also worth looking at the records on Steam and games that attracted the largest number of players at one time. And you have to admit that the list may seem surprising. What does the top ten of this list look like?

The undisputed leader of the list is PUBG – once one of the most popular Battle Royale games in 2018, it attracted over 3 million players from around the world to Steam. No title has yet managed to break this record. Counter-Strike, although it also does great in daily statistics, does not threaten PUBG’s position – at least for the moment. It’s nice to see that we also have a Polish representative in this list. Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt RED managed to interest over 800,000. players at the same time – and that’s right after the premiere.
