Best of Steam 2020: The year's top 100 games as measured by gross revenue

Valve has just published a Best of Steam 2020 list in six categories: top sellers, new releases, most played, early access grads, best of VR, and controller games. Four groups have been created for all categories, platinum, gold, silver, and bronze, and each one is made up of several titles.

Best of Steam 2020: Six categories

Without a doubt, the platinum category has few surprises. The most striking titles are, of course, Fall Guys and Among Us. It is also interesting to see two Rockstar games among the most profitable games of the year. And of course, you can’t miss the most remarkable game of the year, Cyberpunk 2077.

In the gold category, the presence of Phasmophobia is a big surprise. Other titles on the list are Sea of Thieves, Borderlands 3, Dead by Deadlight, and Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

New releases

This category focuses on the titles that have been released in 2020. In this case, we find a general list of 25 games, and then we will find the 20 most profitable releases in each of the months of the year.

If in the previous group Microsoft Flight Simulator was “relegated” to the silver category, in this one the game is obviously in the platinum list. Obviously, we also find Cyberpunk 2077, Fall Guys, and, of course, Doom Eternal.
