In retrospect, Steam casts its gaze over 2023, unveiling the most played and sold games over the past twelve months. This year has witnessed a deluge of launches, infiltrating a list that also features perennial names. It’s a testament to why companies strive for success in the realm of service-based gaming. Concerning revenue, Steam refrains from offering precise figures, categorizing games into Platinum (1st to 12th), Gold (13th to 24th), Silver (25th to 50th), and Bronze (51st to 100th).
