Steam is the biggest game library in the world for PCs and it has recently released a list of the best-selling games in 2018. The great thing about this list is that some of these games are available in Steam’s Winter Sale which is active right now. To make things even better some of these best-selling games are not brand-new games and they are actually old favorites that have been topping the popularity charts for a couple of years now.
Steam’s Best-Selling Games in 2018
- Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (2012);

Wrapping Things Up…
As we can clearly see, there are lots of older games that are making the list of best-selling titles in 2018. This shows us that even though game developers keep releasing AAA titles, the games that sell the best are the ones where the developers have put lots of attention to detail and made them re-playable like PUBG and CS:GO for example.
