One more year, Valve has been encouraged to review best of 2021 and has done so based on data from Steam of gross income and simultaneous players. The company has thus drawn up several rankings from which it is possible to extract a good number of reflections. One is how fast the fashions go by, since there is no trace in the different lists of games such as Among Us or Fall Guys, the best-selling and most played of last year. This 2021 the substitute for both could be Rust, to whose fever Egoland surely contributed, the server with the most famous streamers on the Spanish scene. In the opposite position we have GTA V, DOTA 2 and Counter Strike: Global Offensive, which add six consecutive appearances (six!) In this type of tables. Never doubt Rockstar or the competitive scene. The same with Rainbow Six: Siege and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), which are a step below and meet just five years on the crest of the wave. Also highlight the role of Cyberpunk 2077, who despite the controversies is among the most played of the year.

If we talk only about new releases, the biggest hit is Naraka: Bladepoint, a battle royale up to 60 players set in feudal Japan. It may not sound familiar to you, but it is about Game with the highest gross revenue on Steam in 2021. Quite behind we would find Valheim, New World and Battlefield 2042. Interestingly, most of these names (all except the DICE title) are PC exclusive. If we look for multiplatform highlights the positive acceptance that Microsoft games are having on his arrival on PC, a philosophy that began a few years ago. Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 are among the most successful of the year despite their late release and they are joined by Age of Empires IV. It has been a great year for the Redmond company. Regarding the list of virtual reality games, Half-Life: Alyx and Beat Saber remain in the ointment accompanied by a good number of essential jewels in VR among which unfortunately not too much news. Will 2022 put an end to the device drought?
