Top 10 Most Played Online Games On Steam This Year
Although the number of its competitors increases, Steam is still the largest gaming platform in the PC world. Especially in online games, the number of players playing simultaneously reaches astronomical figures. Online games are breaking both their own and Steam records in 2020, probably caused by pandemic and quarantine. Steam, the largest platform in the game world, brings together millions of players together every year. Steam serves players with numerous games.
Instantaneous player numbers can sometimes be surprisingly high on Steam, where there are many popular free and paid games. But in 2020, despite the fact that people are staying at home, there is a noticeable drop in player numbers. Let’s take a closer look at the most played games on Steam throughout 2020.
Rainbow Six: Siege
Rainbow Six: Siege is the legendary game brought to us by Tom Clancy, who has become a legend in both the literary and game world. Rainbow Six: Siege, which is still popular among FPS games, still seems to have lost some of this popularity.
ARK: Survival Evolved
The first surprise game to appear in the most played games list. ARK surpasses Rainbow Six: Siege, with a difference of approximately 1,000 players in the current player count. ARK: Survival Evolved, a survival game with RPG and survival elements, is one of the rare games that provides a lifelike survival experience.
Apex Legends has become one of the most popular competitive arena shooters in the FPS genre released in 2019. The game continues to climb the Steam ladder with determined steps. Of course, the fact that Apex is free to play has an impact on this popularity. Otherwise, it would be really difficult to deal with Fortnite, PUBG and similar battle royale shooter games.
Team Fortress 2
Valve-based Team Fortress 2, which has been in the game world for many years, is still up-to-date and popular after all these years. The secret of this success is that Team Fortress is different and free from other shooter battle royale games. The fact that there are many interesting weapons, including the flame thrower, is one of the details that make Team Fortress 2 fun.
Grand Theft Auto V
The highest grossing game in the game world. The legend of Rockstar and our era, Grand Theft Auto V, is now among the most played games list this year. Of course, with the release of GTA VI, everything can turn around.
Among Us, which exploded suddenly after a certain period of time after its debut, is based on a foundation that we are all familiar with and have actually been examples in the game world for years. The game’s highest number of concurrent players is 90,270.
Destiny 2, along with CS: GO, is one of the free FPS games that continues to maintain and increase its popularity with sure steps. Destiny 2, released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2017, was a paid game. But in 2019, Steam made a radical decision to make the vanilla version of the game free.
PlayerUnknows’ Battlegrounds, which became the top three by doubling the number of instant players in Destiny 2‘s 90,000, is also Steam‘s most played and the only paid game that exceeds the 100,000 instant player threshold. We all know what PUBG is now. Although riddled with cheaters, occasional updates and similar technical glitches annoy the players and lower the score of the game, we still see that the players cannot give up PUBG.
DOTA, a map of Warcraft III’s single player mode for The Frozen Throne expansion, is one of the only games that has managed to maintain its popularity for almost 20 years. In 2013, it won its official version under the name DOTA 2. The game, which appeared on Steam, continues to grow in popularity since then.
CS: GO is slightly behind in 2020 compared to 2019, but still manages to take the first place. The game ranked first, especially with PUBG and DOTA 2 losing a huge amount of spontaneous and general players. CS: GO is one of the most stable games with the number of instant players.
