Valve, the company that owns Steam, has listed the top 100 titles of 2021 in several categories.
In the Platinum section, that is to say the video games that have brought in the most money (microtransactions and paid extensions included), we find the veteran Rainbow Six Siege, from Ubisoft Montreal. The title is in its fifth year on this Steam chart.
The survival horror video game Dead by daylight, from Montreal studio Behavior Interactive, is also among the most profitable of 2021, according to the platform.
In the other Platinum titles, there are the essentials Apex Legends, PUGB: Battlegrounds, Destiny 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2 and Grand Theft Auto V. These last three are used to being at the top of this list; in fact, they each appear for a sixth year.
Four new features have entered Steam’s list, including Valheim, a sandbox-type game (sandbox) developed by a small team of five people. New World from Amazon Games was also ranked, alongside Naraka: Bladepoint and of Battlefield 2042.
Gold and silver are awarded to …
The lower category, Gold, crowned the Vancouver game FIFA 22, in the same way Forza Horizon 5 and It Takes Two, titles praised at the Game Awards, the video game Oscars held in early December.
Final Fantasy XIV, from Square Enix, also appears in the Gold list. Square Enix has also had to interrupt the sale of the game due to an overload of its servers, its new expansion Endwalker generating too much enthusiasm from the gaming community.
Cyberpunk 2077, which caused much ink to flow, was selected in the Silver category, with the eagerly awaited Halo Infinite. Resident Evil Village, Mass Effect Legendary Edition and Outriders have also qualified, as well as The sims 4, Monster Hunter: World and Team Fortress 2.
