Here are the best games of 2023 on Steam

Steam continues to be the most important gaming platform on PC due to its massive number of users. Other platforms like Epic Games Store are still behind, even though the creators of Fortnite continue their policy of giving away games for free to attract players. Therefore, Valve's platform is a good indicator to find out which games have been the most played in 2023 on PC. Steam has revealed a list of the most played games of the year on the platform, and if we leave aside DOTA 2 and Counter-Strike 2 which are ever-present, we can find some surprises.

It's the year of Baldur's Gate III

Larian Studios climbs to the top this year with Baldur's Gate III which is not surprising if we take into account that it's the Game of the Year 2023. Other big hits like Hogwarts Legacy and Starfield are also among the most played. However, it's worth mentioning that Sons of the Forest is on the list too, which is quite interesting for a survival horror multiplayer game. All these have gathered over 300,000 concurrent players at some point during the year. If we move down the list, we can find Grand Theft Auto V which surpasses 150,000 peak players one year more and continues to be among the most played on the platform. Such popularity anticipates that the release of Grand Theft Auto VI could be the biggest of all time.



Cyberpunk 2077 and Resident Evil 4 have worked their way up the list too, CDPR has regained the trust of the fans and the Resident Evil franchise continues to be a favourite of the players in any of its forms. Other than that, multiplayer free-to-play games take quite a few spots in the list.

If you were looking for some new game to start 2024 you now have a better idea of which games are the most played. As usual, remember that our comparator is the best source of cheap Steam keys for all your favourite games, including Baldur's Gate III, Elden Ring, Remnant 2, and many others.
