Steam has a new graphics center for the best-selling and most-played games

Updated list of best-selling games paints “a more complete picture” of what’s hot on Steam

I’m not here to convince you that graphics are exciting, but as someone who routinely stays on top of games that resonate with Steam’s massive audience, I was eager to check out the new Steam Graphics hub. At a glance, it might seem like more of a presentation update than anything else, but there are some hidden changes.

That said, it’s nice to be able to easily toggle between “live charts” for top sellers (by revenue), most played games (including concurrent player counts and daily peaks), and previous weekly charts. Steam now includes how many weeks a game has been in the Top 100, as well as its ranking up or down compared to the previous week. Neat!

The Steam Best Sellers list shows the position changes from week to week.

A note on income– The best sellers list “shows how well games are selling right now, including all editions (standard, deluxe, etc.) of the game, as well as DLC and in-game transactions,” according to Valve. “If an individual DLC sells well enough on its own to make the chart, we’ll also show the DLC entry so you can see when exciting new game expansions are making waves.”

By bundling DLC ​​and microtransactions together, the hope is to present “a more complete picture of the games that players are excited to get into and continue playing.”

Free games are also presented. “Traditionally, our best-seller lists only included revenue from premium game purchases, but that obscured hugely popular free or cheap games where players buy season passes, major expansions, or other forms of new content. This format also allows us to combine multiple editions of the same game to avoid duplication in the lists.

It is somewhat interesting, in general. But for me specifically, Steam charts have been a great way to discover fast-growing games that were off my radar, which I can then research and potentially share with the rest of you. (hang there, Trombone Champion.)

However, seeing 24 million people online on a random Friday scares me.
