Unveiling the Top Games On Steam and Steam Deck Hits of 2023!

Date:

Valve reveals this year’s best-selling and most-played games on Steam.

Valve on Wednesday offered a behind-the-scenes look at Steam’s biggest games of 2023, revealing which titles are dominating the sales charts on PC gaming’s biggest digital platform. Valve also revealed which games Steam users – and Steam Deck owners – played the most this year, with Baldur’s Gate 3, Hogwarts Legacy, Starfield, and Sons of the Forest making multiple top 12 lists.

Some of the figures won’t be too surprising to Steam users who pay attention to Valve’s publicly available statistics. Perennial Steam favorites like Counter-Strike 2 (née Counter-Strike: Global Offensive), Dota 2, PUBG: Battlegrounds and Apex Legends were well-represented on the best-selling and most-played games lists. are But 2023 brought new contenders, like The Finals and Lethal Company, to Steam’s most-played games.

Valve does not provide specific sales figures or numbered rankings, but instead displays the top 100 Steam games in several categories, breaking the list of each 100 games into several tiers based on sales or game performance:

Platinum: 1st – 12th
Gould: 13-24
Silver: 25-50
Bronze: 51st – 100th
The company’s data spans from January 1 to December 15 of this year, so top-performing latecomers like The Finals in 2023 missed out on top rankings on most of Valve’s lists. Here’s a breakdown of the biggest, most-played, and best-selling games on Steam this year.

BESTSELLING NEW GAMES ON STEAM IN 2023

Only a third of the 12 best-selling games on Steam this year were actually released in 2023, so Valve highlights newly released bestsellers separately. It also bases the following list on revenue for the first two weeks after launch.

Armored Corps 6: Rubicon’s Fire
Baldur’s Gate 3
City: Skylines 2
EA Sports FC 24
The Hogwarts Legacy
Payday 3
Remainder 2

Sons of the Forest

Starfield
Street Fighter 6

Notable 2023 new releases such as Dead Space, Mortal Kombat 1, and Party Animals were ranked in the Gold tier, while Diablo 4, Lies of P, and Six Days in Fallujah were ranked in the Silver tier. (Valve did not disclose data for the bronze tier.)

Based on gross revenue in 2023, the top 12 (platinum-rated) games on Steam include paid premium games like Hogwarts Legacy and Starfield, as well as free-to-play titles like Apex Legends and Lost Ark.

Call of Duty
Counter strike 2
Cyberpunk 2077
