The best-selling Steam games of January 2023 are listed here.

steam best games Valve has released Steam’s annual best of lists as the year comes to a close, highlighting the year’s top selling titles, new releases, most-played titles, and more. According to Valve’s statistics, many of Steam’s most popular games, including almost decade-old titles such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Grand Theft Auto 5, continue to outsell and be played more than newcomers to the PC platform, according to Valve’s statistics.

Each of Valve’s end-of-year wrap-ups lists a few games with their orders listed arbitrarily, making it difficult to tell which title was the best-selling or most-played in each category. Games in the Platinum tier rank first through 12th, with gold-tier games ranking 13th through 24th. Those in the silver tier are ranked 25 through 40, while games in the bronze tier are ranked 41 through 100. These lists are based on internal Valve data from January 1, 2023, to January 29, 2023.

The best-selling Steam games of 2022 are listed here.

The top-selling section of Steam’s best of 2023 list is the most crucial, since it informs gamers about the year’s most popular titles. In a random order supplied by Valve, the Platinum-tier 2023 Best Selling Games were:

  • Apex Legends is a video game developed by Respawn Entertainment.
  • PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds)
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a video game developed by Valve Corporation.
  • Battlefield 2042 is a game set in the year 2042.
  • Bladepoint: Naraka
  • By Daylight, I’m Dead.
  • A New World in Destiny 2
  • Rainbow Six Siege is a game by Tom Clancy.
  • Valheim
  • Dota 2: Grand Theft Auto 5

In a blog post, Valve pointed out several notable repeat offenders. For the sixth year in a row, Dota 2, CS:GO, and GTA5 have all reached the top selling list, with PUBG: Battlegrounds and Rainbow Six Siege both making the list for the fifth time. Destiny 2 has topped the list for three years in a row, with 2019 being its first year on Steam after its departure from Blizzard’s platform.

On the list, there are a few first-time winners as well. Battlefield 2042, New World, and Valheim are among the new games on the list. Apex Legends is particularly noteworthy since it is a non-2020 game that debuted on Steam late last year.

Another intriguing category is new releases, which highlights the year’s best 25 new games. The Platinum-tier Top New Releases for 2023, in random order from Valve:

  • Back 4 Blood is the fourth installment in the Age of Empires series.
  • Outriders in Forza Horizon 5
  • Valheim
  • Halo Infinite’s Resident Evil Village
  • Battlefield 2042 is a game set in the year 2042.
  • The Legendary Edition of Mass Effect: New World
  • Bladepoint Farming Simulator 22 is a Naraka game.

In comparison to 2023, Valve also provided a breakdown of the months in which new releases were released. Last year, we had a good March and a solid January. January, January, and January 2023 were a little more erratic, with three significant months each featuring four or five entrants: January, January, and January.

Finally, we’ll look at Steam’s most popular titles, which are divided into different categories based on concurrent users. Here are the 2023 games with over 200,000 concurrent players, in alphabetical order, as determined by Valve:

  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a video game developed by Valve Corporation.
  • The New World
  • In Dota 2’s Valheim,
  • PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds)
  • Apex Legends is a video game developed by Respawn Entertainment.
  • Halo Infinite is a video game developed by 343 Industries.
  • Rust
  • Grand Theft Auto 5: Cyberpunk 2077 is the fifth installment in the Grand Theft Auto series.

Last year’s list included titles like Dota 2, GTA 5, PUBG, and CS: GO. Rust is a graduate from last year’s 100,000 list, giving it a stronger 2023 than 2020.

Several of the 200K games from the previous year have also been relegated to lesser categories. Following its success last year, Destiny 2 and Among Us were relegated to the “100K” category in 2023. Terraria, a 200K game released in 2020, has been relegated to the 60K list. Another popular game in 2020, Monster Hunter: World, has dropped below the 30K mark. Both 200K games in 2020, Life is Strange 2 and Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord, do not feature in the most-played games of 2023.

We won’t feature some of the extra categories on the best of 2023 Steam list since they aren’t listed here. Check out Valve’s official blog article for more information on top early access grads, top-selling VR titles, and top controller games.
