Valve’s stats page for its Steam storefront now features real-time charts showing both the top-selling and most-played games at any given time. You can check out the new stats page here.
As I write this, the best-selling title is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – perhaps not too shocking given that pre-ordering the game gives you early access to the open beta – but the next best-selling game is, to my surprise, slime farmer 2.
According to a Valve blog post, the best-selling lists are ranked by total revenue, including DLC and in-game purchases, which aims to provide a “more complete picture of the games players are excited about. come in and keep playing”. play.” And Valve added metrics like number of weeks on the chart and weekly ranking change to give you a better idea of where games are trending.

The list of most played games is topped with some always popular free games like CS: GO, Dota 2and Apex Legendsbut this graph also shows that Cyberpunk 2077 is in the top 10, probably supported by a new update and the Netflix anime. You can sort the list of most played players by current players, which will show you what’s being played the most at that time, and daily players, which ranks games by the maximum number of daily players.
This new stats page is already a solid source of information, and I think it will be worth keeping an eye on, especially as we enter the holiday shopping season. I also think I’ll also use it to discover games that a lot of people pay attention to – like slime farmer 2Apparently.
