Valve announced the 100 games that have brought in the most revenue on Steam in 2016. The list is quite varied, ranging from top dogs like Grand Theft Auto V and the company’s own Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to more granular games like Stellaris.
The is the first time that Valve has put together such an extensive list that ranks games according to their total gross revenue for the year. The games are sorted into one of four different tiers, with 1-12 labeled as “Platinum,” 13-24 labeled as “Gold,” 25-40 labeled as “Silver,” and the rest falling into the Bronze category.
While the positioning doesn't give a specifics on which diversions inside a given classification set higher than each other, what the aggregate income was for a specific amusement, or the amount of that income was from in-diversion buys versus the underlying deal, it's as yet an intriguing breakdown of what amusements individuals were ready to spend the most cash for.
For instance people are apparently still spending quite a lot of money on Fallout 4, one of the year’s “Platinum” games alongside The Witcher 3 and Total War: Warhammer. Meanwhile, games with buggy PC versions at release didn’t fair as well as one might have expected. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided didn’t break out of the “Silver” tier, and Dishonored 2 was stuck in “Bronze” along with the first game which came out back in 2012. And, in news that you can take however you want, No Man’s Sky did crack the top 12.
One all the more thing that is important is exactly how well allowed to-play diversions appeared to do on Steam. Dota 2 and Warframe were both close to the highest priority on the rundown while Smite and War Thunder figured out how to even now put amidst the pack, showing that the pool of allowed to-play income is sufficiently enormous to manage no less than a modest bunch of recreations in the Steam environment.
The news returns on the on 2016 Steam Awards declaration, and incorporates rebates as a major aspect of the finish of the winter deal to help the recreations that have effectively profited in 2016 make somewhat more toward the begin of 2017.
