Valve has revealed the top 100 best selling games on Steam in 2016. This list games that are currently available on Steam, regardless of their year of release, and they were measured by gross revenue in 2016.
As we can see, the twelve best selling PC games on Steam in 2016 are: Civilization VI, The Witcher 3, XCOM 2, Fallout 4, Dark Souls III, The Division, Rocket League, DOTA 2, Total War: Warhammer, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Grand Theft Auto V and No Man’s Sky.
The next twelve best selling games on Steam are: Stardew Valley, ARK: Survival Evolved, DOOM, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Arma III, Dead by Daylight, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Warframe, Stellaris, H1Z1: King of Hill, Team Fortress 2 and Rainbow Six: Siege.
The next sixteen best selling games on Steam are: Planet Coaster, Dying Light: The Following, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, RUST, Civilization V, Cities, Skylines, Far Cry: Primal, Europa Universalis IV, War Thunder, The Elder Scrolls Online, Skyrim, Watch_Dogs 2, PAYDAY 2, SMITE, Subnautica, Hearts of Iron IV.
These are some truly interesting results. As we can see, Black Ops III is selling better than Infinite Warfare. Civilization V sold great, even though Civilization VI was released in 2016. Watch_Dogs 2 also sold well, as did Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, DOOM, Rise of the Tomb Raider and The Division.
Furthermore, we can see a lot of free-to-play titles in the aforementioned categories, proving that a number of F2P games make a lot of money thanks to micro-transactions and their cosmetic items.
