Steam Game Charts: Cause For Celebration

Actual new entries!

Change! Actual change! Other than, y'know, the three games that are here every single week, every single week I have to include them, every single week, they're there, undying, changing, every single week, every single week.

Yeah! It's the top ten best-selling games on Steam last week.

1. No Man's Sky

Apparently UK retail PS4 sales have declined by some 81% in NMS' second week (it's been displaced by F1 2016 at the top of that part particular chart), but over on Steam it retains first place for a second week running. I hope that the previous statement was dispassionate enough to reflect the facts of this disclaimer: I did some writing for No Man's Sky and so do not express any opinions about the game on RPS.

2. Grand Theft Auto V

3.Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Pre-orders and preloads were go last week, so what you see here is people installing 42GB of encrypted download onto their hard drive in the vain hope that it would magically work before its release date later today. I am one of those fools. I have clicked the shortcut twice just in case case, despite the sure knowledge that it would not work.

Question is, will this make number one next week? Read our Deus Ex Mankind Divided review for clues, hints, conspiracies.

4. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

5. RimWorld

Keeps on truckin', keeps on making fans, keeps on scratching simulatory survival itches in space. This remains the chart entry that makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

6. Dead by Daylight

7. Just Cause 3 XL

The XL pack comprises Just Cause 3 and its 11 gobbets of DLC, including the Air, Land & Sea Expansion Pass. A big ol' bundle of grappling and exploding, basically. It's in here because - what else? - it was half-price last week. Back up to £60 now though, I'm afraid.

8. F1 2016

Is this the first racing game I've covered in the long and increasingly frustrated history of these charts? I rather think it is. F1 2016 might be a chart-topper over in console-land, but on Steam it seems that we prefer galaxies to tarmac and stabbing to simulation.

9. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen

Released in January but half-priced last week, hence all but guaranteed a spot in the chart. DDDA is a last-gen RPG spit'n'polished for PC, and which has a go at various bits of Dark Souls, The Witcher, Skyrim and Shadow of the Colossus. Our Richard didn't think it entirely pulled off its bold ambitions, whereas Steven is rather impressed by it. WHO TO BELIEVE?

10. Starbound

Oh, I thought this had dropped out. Foolish of me, really: Terraria In Space has demonstrated serious staying power for several years now, after all. Let's just pray that it's not angling for the GIF treatment, eh?
