Valve reveals Steam’s best-selling games of 2020



We’ve told you what we think are the best PC games of 2020 (well, as many as we could fit), but what about cold, hard business? For people who want calculations and money, Valve has revealed the best-selling games on Steam in 2020. They are a bit vague about it, mind you.

Valve avoid giving numbers or even a final ranking for something. They sort games into ‘bands’, largely do not explain the calculations that define them, and randomly shuffle the order in which they are presented. So you can basically see which ones are successful, but not which ones are most successful, nor how some can be compared to others in their band. And they are missing the end of December (and therefore Steam Winter Sale), obvs.

For your convenience, I have re-sorted all of Valve̵

7;s lists in alphabetical order. I have also only included the top bands. The complete lists of games (many, many more games) are up on Steam right now (switch between categories with tabs), along with a few extra words from Valve.

Top sellers in income 2020

This covers the cost of the game itself plus DLC and in-game purchases. The list is pretty much what you expect, although it’s impressive that Cyberpunk 2077 crept in despite its launch in December. And it’s nice that Among Us made the income list despite the fact that they only cost £ 4. A lot of people are suspicious of their friends this year.

Among us
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
Cyberpunk 2077
Fate 2
Doom Eternal
Dota 2
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout
Grand Theft Auto V.
Monster Hunter: World
Playerunknown’s battlefields
Red Dead Redemption 2
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege

New releases

Valve says that this list is based on income in the two weeks after release. Again, many things you’d expect, although I’m surprised that several previous Epic Games Store exclusives had such great Steam debuts despite being ‘out’ for several months. And several of these are covered by Xbox Game Pass subscriptions, but there are obviously many who prefer to buy them directly.

Baldur’s Gate 3
Borderlands 3
Command & Conquer Remastered Collection

Sea Of Thieves
Star Wars: Squadrons
Temtem
The outer worlds
Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem

Top VR games

Another category defined by in-game revenue, DLC and in-game purchases. These are mostly familiar games I expect to see on the list, but I had not heard of VR Kanojo, so I looked it up, and jesus it’s about hanging out with a virtual schoolgirl.

“Even better, VR controllers simulate your hands in the game, allowing you to interact with her more directly,” say the developers. “Imagine all the possibilities!” Never be curious, Alice.

Arizona Sunshine
Beat Saber
Leaf and sorcery
Boneworks
Half-life: Alyx
Sausages, horseshoes and grenades
Pavlov VR
Pistol whip
Superhot VR
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners
VR Kanojo

Top sellers graduated from early access in 2020

Defined by revenue in 2020 from games, DLC and in-game purchases. Some good and long-awaited launches this year.

Conqueror’s Blade
Deep Rock Galactic
Golf with your friends
DJMax Respect V
Factorio
Hades
Noita
Danger of rain 2
Skater XL
The troops
Torchlight III
Wolcen: Lords Of Mayhem

Most played

Not based on sales, this. The most played category goes by top contemporaries in 2020, where the top level is games that broke 200,000. It’s pretty much the big multiplayer games you expect, plus Cyberpunk obvs, so the surprising look of Life Is Strange 2. Nice one, LIS!

Among us
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
Cyberpunk 2077
Fate 2
Dota 2
Grand Theft Auto V.
Life is Strange 2
Monster Hunter: World
Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord
Playerunknown’s battlefields
Terraria

Top controller game based on the highest daily players using a controller

Also nothing to do with sales. Even as a Destiny player whose raid group includes someone on the controller, I’m surprised to see it here. That’s probably because MMOFPS has enough players to force it into the top tier, but damn it.

Cyberpunk 2077
Dark Souls III
Fate 2
Dragon Ball Z: Cockroach
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout
Fifa 21
Grand Theft Auto V.
Hades
Monster Hunter: World
NBA 2K20
Persona 4 Golden
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
