In the middle of winter sales, Valve has unveiled the best-selling games on Steam for 2018. This is something it does every year, but instead of giving us actual figures for sales or revenue, Valve only groups those best sellers of the year into four different groups: platinum, gold, silver and bronze. We see some well-known titles that come into the platinum group this year, which is somewhat surprising.
In fact, only three of the 12 platinum games came out this year: Far Cry 5 Assassin's Creed: Odyssey and Monster Hunter World . They join other games such as PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds DOTA 2 Rocket League and Grand Theft Auto V all of which are common sights on this list
Games that made it to the gold group include Kingdom Come: Extradition Jurassic World Evolution The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cities Skylines . Again we see a serious lack of games released in 201
There are a number of free game games on the list also, including Paladins Path of Exile ] Warframe and the above DOTA 2 . Of course, this suggests that these games make bank purchases in the game, as a couple managed to climb into the highest levels of the steam round.
Since we are in the midst of the steam winter sales, many of these titles are also discounted, so if you want to check out some of the most popular games of the year, it is definitely a good time to buy. You can check out the full list of Steam 100 best-selling games of the year over at the steam store.
