A study publishes the cumulative profits of the 5 most popular games on Steam. The cumulative profits, as of August 2020, exceed $ 2 billion for PUBG, GTA V, The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt, Rust, and Ark Survival Evolved.
A study shows the cumulative profits of the most popular games on Steam. What are the video games that have entered the most on the Valve platform to date? According to the data that you can consult in the study, the title that is the most popular in the digital store is Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) with more than 730 million dollars (35% of the total of the 5 most successful games).
Perhaps in the world there is still some clueless who does not know the premise of an “all against all” of this type. It is about 100 players jumping from a plane to an island, where they will have to fight until there is only one survivor – in this case, we can also play in squads of 4 men. The combat area is a circle that is gradually reducing, and that forces us to meet our adversaries.
If we are allowed to compare, what happens with PUBG is similar to the phenomenon Minecraft, which was adapting to all devices and platforms, after its impetuous start on PC. You can know everything about Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds in our PUBG analysis.
The second highest grossing game in its history via Steam is Grand Theft Auto V, which has achieved an impressive $ 470 million. Under the approach of an urban “sandbox”, we know the history of Michael, Franklin and Trevor. They are three marginal characters, masterfully portrayed, who reflect different faces of crime in this virtual version of Los Angeles, called The Saints.
But anyone who knows the saga knows that these 69 missions they are only a small part of what the game offers. With a city at our disposal (and the surrounding counties) the amount of activities available is overwhelming: we have missions of Strange and crazy, in addition to races (by land, sea and air), aerobatic jumps, visiting strip bars or practicing sports such as tennis or golf. We can also enjoy TV programming (in HD in this new version) or take out our smartphone iFruit to act as photographers.
He GTA multiplayer it is a separate game, as big and fun as the story itself. We created a character (the editor, like a criminal recognition wheel, has also improved on the new consoles) and we launched into The Saints to participate in challenges of all kinds. We have at our disposal races, tennis, golf, band matches … or those that we can design. If we have the character in active mode, we can also face other players at any point in the city. You can learn more in our GTA V review.
Steam, Steam’s PC video game platform, has a huge catalog … and many of them are free and fun games. Are you going to miss them?

Third, we have The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. He CD game Projekt Red hits $ 280 million on Steam in August 2020.
At this point, it is difficult to talk about The Witcher III Wild Hunt without falling back into the clichés, because in its original release it became one of the titles that defined what the current – at that time, young – generation of consoles. It is a role-playing game with real-time combat that takes place in an open world (the world of sword and witchcraft imagined by the writer, also Polish, Andrzej Sapkowski).
It is an adult and dark setting, interpreting elements of Central European folklore with a cynical and unmistakable approach. And in fact, this third installment is the closing of the adventures of the warlock Geralt of Rivia. This time Geralt faces the Wild Hunt, a group of spectral horsemen who are chasing his adopted daughter, Ciri. Here you can read the analysis of The Witcher III Wild Hunt.
