Best of Steam 2021

While 2021 ends, a few companies take a long look back at the year, and with the Valve juggernaut Steam, this is no exception. Year in and year out, Steam absolutely kills it with huge deals and millions of players year-round.

As there are many categories to dive into, especially with Steam, the categorically constructed lists of 2021 have some surprises, but also some easy-to-figure ones. There are four tiers of sales that are based on Steam. Platinum is the highest tier, while Bronze is the lowest tier, so this list will be compiled from the very top of the lists, beginning with Platinum and ending with Gold. While the tiers do show a discrepancy in sale numbers, each title listed in the tier isn’t listed in order. This is where we bring you, the best of 2021, Steam edition.

The purpose of these lists filled with top-notch titles is to show what the world is playing on Steam. While there are easy to understand titles such as GOTY reigning champ Hades, there are games maybe not so widely thought of as ‘widely played.’ A Steam gamer can find a new title to dig their talons into by seeing what everyone else is playing. Destiny 2 is particularly notable considering this is its third straight year in the platinum tier of Steam.

As the year continues to wind down, Steam continues to be an absolute beast in terms of gaming quality as it has one of the largest digital libraries of games with many publishers taking part in the distribution on the massive platform. By seeing what everyone else has played in 2021, gamers may be able to locate some hidden gems on a truly daunting service.

With as huge of a year of gaming as 2021 was, 2022 will ring in with many classic offerings from steam as well. Sometimes gamers could use some slight help on where to look for the best quality.
