Steam has just released a special page revealing the top selling games on their platform, measured by gross revenue this year. They have organized games into “Platinum”, “Gold”, “Silver”, and “Bronze” tiers. Taking a look at the Platinum tier you can see many games you expected to be there like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Counter-Strike: GO, and Rocket League. One interesting thing about the platinum tier is that there are two Free To Play games listed. This shows that their monetization strategy is correct, and how free to play games can still making impressive earnings.
Moving down to the Gold Tier it is interesting to see both Assassin’s Creed Origins and Call of Duty: WWII there as both games only just came out recently. This shows how big these games really are. the rest of the games you can check out below or on Steam’s dedicated page.
