Steam publishes the list of best games of 2021

Steam publishes the list of best games of 2021

There are some events that are becoming a tradition. Valve's game distribution platform is famous for its seasonal sales throughout the year, but it also publishes a list that reveals the top sellers and most played games. The Steam Best of 2021 list is already out, and it reveals some surprising facts about the video game community. 

The Top Sellers category shows that a huge number of players enjoy certain games without caring about how old they are. Games like Grand Theft Auto V, PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS, Destiny 2, or Rainbow Six Siege still attract quite a few players, and New World has had a very good reception despite its problems at launch. It is yet to be seen how the first MMORPG from Amazon Games will evolve in the future with the upcoming launch of titles like Lost Ark. Also, Valheim and Naraka: Bladepoint have established themselves as rising stars, and Dead By Daylight continues to be a fan favorite.



When it comes to the games most played on Steam in 2021, we surprisingly find that Cyberpunk 2077 has found a spot on the top of the category. It seems that CD Project Red's efforts to fix the awful state of the game at launch are paying off, and many players have decided that the RPG is worth their time. The other surprise in this category is Halo Infinite. The free-to-play multiplayer mode from 343 Industries' shooter has been available for quite a short time only, but it has attracted a massive number of players, which results in it being one of the games with the highest number of concurrent players this year.



If we look at the list of new releases measured by gross revenue, we can find a wider variety, with games like Farming Simulator 22, Age of Empires IV, Battlefield 2042, and Resident Evil Village at the top. 

These lits can give you some hints if you are looking for a good game to play. As usual, you can find all of them at the best price on our comparator anytime.
