Steam's 'Best Of 2017' List Showcases Last Year's Biggest Games

Along with the many best-of lists (such as our own roundups of 2017's best PC games, best Xbox One games and best Nintendo Switch games), the big digital storefronts are rolling out their own analyses of how games fared over the a year ago. You can check out the top new releases of 2017, broken down month-by-month, and the top 100 sellers of 2017 are broken down into Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze sections.

"PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" was the biggest gaming story of 2017, as the game reached astronomical levels of popularity and brought about a new kind of multiplayer shooter. Taking all the games from Steam's 2017 Best-Sellers list that qualify for MetaCritic scores, we set out to determine whether there was any significant link between review scores and sales performance on Steam.

As it did previous year, the company decided against sharing exact revenue figures, and instead grouped releases into platinum, gold, silver, and bronzes categories based on how much gross revenue they pulled in.

Many of you will be aware that Playerunknown's Battlegrounds was one of the most popular and successful games of 2017.

In what is bound to confuse many a numbers-focused executive, we discovered no clear correlation between sales on Steam and critical reception.

Speaking to Inven Global, CEO Chang Han Kim stated that the game will be on Xbox One as an exclusive title "for some time", but explained that it being available on Xbox One first was indeed because of the system's Game Preview access program.

2017 was a wonderful year for video games, no doubt about that, so now's the time to reflect on Steam's best sellers. This was also an issue for Ark: Survival Evolved, which launched on Xbox One much earlier than it did on PS4.

GO, and Dota 2 all highlight the Platinum list. He posted Steam statistics to Twitter, thanking fans for their continued support following the game's official 1.0 release.

On the same day that PUBG broke it, Dota 2 had just 704,938 concurrent players, which is still far more than most other games on Steam.
