  2. This month we'll be looking at the final top release list of the 2010s. These are the top products released in December 2019, as measured by revenue generated during the first two weeks after their launch. We also included the top 5 most popular free-to-play releases, measured by total unique player count for the two weeks following release. With each month's top release list, we enjoy highlighting metadata about developers. For example, this month we have products coming from developers in 13 different countries (check below for specific countries). Beyond the fun that comes with checking the map for our favorite games, this helps illustrate the diversity of content makers who are bringing products to Steam. These developers have their own regional insights and experiences that allow them to incorporate unique themes, cultural elements and gaming mechanics to give an amazing amount of choice to Steam players. Another point worth mentioning is the number of teams bringing a product to Steam for the first time. This month stuck out to us again, with almost half of the products coming from development teams who haven't yet been on Steam. We want to welcome these teams that are new to Steam: 10 Chambers Collective, A44, Elastic Games, Kozhakov, INFERNA LIMITED, Beawesome Games, Simogo, Bankroll Studios, Wiple Games, and HR Innoways The studios represented each month tell a worthwhile story, but what about the games themselves - elements like game mechanics, themes, visual styles and genres. With these factors often represented in the form of user tags, we can actually look at the top three tags applied to the games on this month's list to get an idea of what elements they share, along with elements that stand alone. The first thing we noticed this month is that only a handful of tags are applied to many games on the list: Action (9 games), Adventure (9), RPG (7), Indie (6) and Casual (6). The high frequency of these tags makes sense, as they represent broad groupings that are fairly generic and appear the most often on Steam. These tags provide useful high level groupings, but they aren't terribly good at illustrating specifics. When we look at the rest of the top three tags applied to each game, the frequency is drastically reduced, with 23 unique tags only appearing on a single game. Examples include: Great Soundtrack, Dragons, Co-op, Rhythm, Souls-like, Physics, Detective, Vampire and more. Unlike the highest-frequency tags, these are more likely to give specific insights about what makes each game unique. With millions of players on Steam coming from every imaginable region and background, the volume of unique tags echoes the huge variety of preferences that exist throughout the community. These tags also validate the creativity and perception of developers, who are able to find success each month by combining familiar shared themes with unique one-off elements. If you enjoy the story that tags reveal and want to explore them in even greater detail, we recommend a visit to our Steam Labs. Experiments 004 & 005 both leverage tags to help narrow down the catalog in creative new ways. If you haven't tried yet, give it a shot and let us know what you think! December's Top ReleasesHere is the list of December's top releases ordered by release date (we've organized this list on a sale page too): Halo: The Master Chief Collection 343 Industries, Splash Damage, Ruffian Games and Bungie (US) Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem HeR Interactive, Inc.

  5. Hello to my favorite Steamville residents! Yes, even you, my little snowman thieves. It’s Mayor Carol, here to remind you that the 13th annual Steam Winter Sale will be coming to a close at 10am Pacific on January 2nd. And unlike what happened at the end of our Town Council’s karaoke performance of Jingle Bell Rock, the people of Steamville are enthusiastically chanting “Encore, Encore!” for the Winter Sale. So featured for these final two days of the sale, check out our Top Sellers from the event. Now’s also a great time to check your Festivity Token balance. Hoarding will get you nowhere, my dears! You must spend them in our Holiday Market before they expire at the end of the sale! Speaking of hoarding: In case anyone was so wrapped up in the Market they missed it, we announced earlier that Animated Stickers and Consumable Chat Effects no longer expire, so save away and use them whenever you like! Cheers to you all, and thank you for joining me in yet another festive celebration in Steamville! Happy New Year, Mayor Carol P.S. While I appreciate the return of the snowman to the grounds of Town Hall, the carrot was in a rather… questionable place. Steamville is always home to a good time, but please, let's keep it family-friendly. View the full article

  9. Yesterday we revealed the Selling and Top Played games of 2019 across all of Steam, and today we're continuing the look back at 2019 by highlighting some of the best games that you can play with a controller. Whether you like to play from your couch or lean way back in your chair, there are a lot of great games on Steam that can be played with any one of hundreds of different controller models, including Xbox or Playstation controllers you might have laying around. Nearly any kind of input device with a USB plug at the end (and many without) can be used to play some of the best games on Steam. Here's a guide for where to start. To come up with this list, we generated a list of the top 100 games with the highest peak number of concurrent players using a controller. Then we divided that list up into various common controller-friendly genres so you can more easily find the kind of game you might be looking for. https://store.steampowered.com/sale/controller_games_2019 View the full article

  11. With the year almost at an end, we're unveiling our Best of 2019 lists. In keeping with tradition, we've built lists with the same themes as last year - Top Sellers, Top New Releases, Top Selling VR Titles, Top Early Access Grads and Most Played Games. Top SellersThis list is as self-explanatory as it sounds - a look at games earning the most revenue in 2019. When measuring revenue, we look at game sales, in-game transactions and DLC associated with the game in question. You'll probably notice some familiar games that were in previous year's lists, along with newcomers that have climbed their way to the top. Where did your favorite game end up this year? Here's the Top Selling Games of 2019 Top New ReleasesThis list a compilation of our monthly top release lists that were created over the course of 2019. We've also listed the overall top 12 game releases of 2019. We measure top releases by looking at a game's total revenue generated during the first two weeks after its release. Every single month includes a surprising amount of representation from different genres, gameplay mechanisms and themes. Which month was your favorite? Here's the Top New Releases of 2019 Top Selling VR GamesVR continued to grow in 2019, with over 600 new VR-only titles released over the course of the year. Many other games added VR support, along with unique VR-only experiences built for several fan-favorite franchises. This list showcases the best selling VR-only titles of 2019. To focus on the growth of VR this year, we've also listed the top 20 VR-only games released in 2019. These products are measured by the revenue they generated during the first two weeks after release. Here's the Top Selling VR Games of 2019 Top Early Access GraduatesEarly Access represents a unique model of development that incorporates player feedback throughout the course of the game's development to its launch. This list recognizes games that have built strong Early Access communities and transitioned into commercially successful releases during 2019. These are measured by revenue earned during 2019 (during Early Access and after full release). Here's the Top Early Access Grads of 2019 Most Played GamesWhile the other lists are based on commercial success, our Most Played list highlights games based solely on player count. The Most Played Games list includes any game that had more than 15,000 simultaneous players at some point during 2019. In order to highlight games that have built large player bases, we've excluded brief spikes in player counts due to things like giveaways and free weekends. Here's the Most Played Games of 2019 Notes:We don't disclose specific revenue information for these lists, but top sellers are broken into four categories in order to give you an idea of how they placed. The games within each band are sorted randomly: Platinum: 1st - 12th Top Seller Gold: 13th - 24th Top Seller Silver: 25th - 40th Top Seller Bronze: 41st - 100th Top Seller Thanks for checking out these lists. After all, they were built by everyone who plays games on Steam! Also, don't forget to check out the Steam Winter Sale, on now until January 2nd. Many of the titles in the lists above are discounted, and these lists are a great way to browse games that players loved in 2019. -The Steam TeamView the full article
