Best Selling Games on Steam in 2020

This is the last week of the year, the perfect time to look back and understand which video games have most accompanied and helped us during this atypical period.

Steam, as it does every year, has published its list of the Best Selling and Most Played Games of 2020, using its own criteria, presumably based exclusively on the sales and player metrics of its platform.

In any case, we can have a good idea of ​​what was most played in a global pandemic year.

Steam Best Sellers List

Best Selling Games on Steam in 2020

  • Among Us
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • Destiny 2
  • Doom Eternal
  • DOTA 2
  • Fall Guys
  • Grand Theft Auto V
  • Monster Hunter: World
  • PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege

The list of best-selling titles is organized taking into account the gross revenues obtained at Valve’s virtual store, and there are plenty of games that were not even launched in 2020.

In fact, of the 12 games on this list, only Cyberpunk 2077, Fall Guys and Doom: Eternal hit the shelves this year. Interestingly, a good part are multiplayer games, perfect for keeping social distance and friendships alive.

  • Grand Theft Auto V
  • Life Is Strange 2
  • Monster Hunter: World
  • Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord

The list of most played games no longer considers sales figures, but rather the number of players simultaneously during the year that now ends. All the games presented above had at least 200 thousand players on their servers at the same time.

We already knew that Among Us became the most popular game ever in this period, and Cyberpunk 2077, despite all its problems, managed to get a lot of people online, especially on launch day.

Steam highlights other categories

This annual Steam retrospective also makes special mention of some other, perhaps less relevant, categories. One draws attention to the Best Games to Play Command, focusing on classics like Monster Hunter: World, Grand Theft Auto V or the inevitable The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Among the Best Games Coming Out of Early Access, the main name to register is Hades, from Supergiant Games, which is considered by many to be one of the best games this year.
