The Steam Top 100 page is gone.The old no-nonsense list of Steam’s most popular games by concurrent players has been replaced with something deeper and more Attractive ranking (opens in new tab)You can still see which games are currently being played by the most people, but now you can sort the games by unique players per day and earnings.
The new Steam stats page is called “Steam Charts”, but Steam Charts (www.steamcharts.com (opens in new tab)) uses the Steam API to provide more comprehensive concurrent player data than Steam itself displays. Steam Charts remains a useful website (I use it all the time), but it becomes difficult to distinguish it from Valve’s official stats page in Google search results. The La Vie!
The most notable addition to Steam’s new Steam Charts page is the Top Selling Games chart. Valve has been sharing monthly sales charts for some time now, but with these weekly charts, billboard hot 100 (opens in new tab) Territory is finally complete. Similar to the Greatest Hits chart, Steam’s Top Seller chart shows how much a game has moved up or down from the previous week’s chart. It’s easy to imagine talking about a “chart-topping game” or “a game that was at the top of his Steam charts for four weeks.” It’s a more modern version of the old NPD game sales reports that pop up every time Console Warrior ramps up its exclusives.
The Topsellers chart is based on all revenue earned through Steam, not just the number of units sold, so it includes games that are free to play (although they generate significant revenue through DLC or in-game transactions). ). For example, Apex Legends is currently number three on the list. Cyberpunk 2077 is his fourth on the list, player surge following the release of netflix anime People aren’t the only ones returning to the game. people are buying it.And of course we are happy to see trombone champ Slip in at #12.
Steam has long had top seller lists (categories on the front page of the store). However, the presentation of these new charts and the fact that they are archived weekly could double their power.Sticking to player count is already Popular PC game entertainmentand I can’t imagine this new Billboard-style chart going unutilized by people trying to prove that one game is better, dead, or more profit-oriented than another .
And a small note about the existing Top Seller List: Apparently they use a different ranking system. new blog post (opens in new tab)Valve said the top-selling store category will be launched using a “new method of calculating earnings” devised for these Steam Charts reports.
Another small but interesting change is the new option to sort the concurrent players list by “players by day”. Instead of ranking Steam games by how many people are currently playing them, the daily player setting “ranks games based on the total number of unique players in the last 24 hours,” says Valve.
It changes the image considerably. Games like PUBG, which are more popular outside of his time his zone, jump to a few places every day when the player switches to his view. Grand Theft Auto 5 and Cyberpunk 2077 also top the list. Team Fortress 2, on the other hand, falls 19 places when looking at daily uniques rather than concurrent uniques. This means many instances of TF2 are running at the same time, but more people are playing Yu-Gi-Oh. Master Duel every day. I’ll refrain from jumping to unsupported conclusions, but this is certainly an interesting statistic.
