The Most Popular Games on Steam
Embed code:

Steam is a digital distribution platform released in 2003 by Valve Corporation. Beginning with Rag Doll Kung Fu, third-party games became available to buy and download via Steam in October 2005. By 2007, larger developers like Eidos Interactive, Capcom, and id Software began distributing their games on Steam. Today, Steam is wildly popular among PC gamers due to the ability to find discount Steam games during frequent sales, share games on Steam with their friends, review games on the Steam market, and download free Steam games during freebies that are offered on a regular basis. This infographic presents the most owned games released each year since 2008 and provides a breakdown of their key metrics.
