The Most Popular PC Games in 2018 Based on Steam Version

The end of the year is indeed the right time to summarize what happened throughout the year. For Valve, what they summarized were the 2018 hardest selling PC games on their game distribution portal, Steam. Apparently, there are quite a lot of old games that are still fast giving 'pocket money' to developers and publishers. 


1. Rocket League

This game of 'soccer' using a car that can make it worse is indeed loved by many players.

2. Grand Theft Auto V

Rockstar's flagship game franchise really doesn't die. From 2013, this game is still the biggest contributor to Rockstar.

3. The Elder Scrolls Online

No wonder if this MMORPG game is in the best-selling game list on Steam. Naturally, because the fanbase is very much indeed.

4. Far Cry 5

Who says new games can't make high profits? The proof is Far Cry 5 which was released on March 27, 2018, can be perched on this list

5. Warframe

Another game from 2013 which is still in its heyday in 2018. Warframe seems to have never lost its active players.

6. Dota 2

Who said Dota 2 is a dead game? In fact, this MOBA name lifting game still supplies Valve with various existing content.

7. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege

In the midst of the FPS game survival battle royals, Rainbow Six Siege is able to tie a lot of players who like the FPS genre so that they can be on this list.

8. Monster Hunter: World

It could be said that Monster Hunter: World became the most successful Monster Hunter series to date. If it's not successful, this game shouldn't be here.

9. Civilization VI

Almost all the best-selling games on Steam dwell on the FPS and RPG genres. But, strategy games can also engrave their names in best-selling games through Civilization VI.

10. Player Unknown's Battleground

Games that are proven to have towering popularity. Of course, high popularity also has an impact on the best selling of PUBG.

11. Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Incorporating online multiplayer gameplay into the Assassin's Creed series is a very appropriate decision for Ubisoft so that this developer can rain down on the money.

12. Counter Strike: Global Offensive

This 6-year-old game on Steam can still compete with famous games today. Even though CS: GO is already free!

That was 12 of the best-selling PC games on Steam. In addition to showing the game with the most revenue in 2018, Valve also announced several other game categories such as:
