Another year over, a new one just begun, which means, impossibly, even more games.> But what about last year? Which were the games that most people were buying and, more importantly, playing? As is now something of a tradition, Valve have let slip a big ol’ breakdown of the most successful titles released on Steam over the past twelve months.

Below is the full, hundred-strong roster, complete with links to our coverage if you want to find out more about any of the games, or simply to marvel at how much seemed to happen in the space of 52 short weeks.

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time.>

I’ve long possessed a fondness for Bohemia Interactive’s military simulators, ever since Operation Flashpoint invaded my hard-drive back in 2001. But ArmA 3 is the first Bohemia game since OpFlash to successfully modernise that that initial concept, striking a pleasing balance between ambition, accessibility, and stability of play. (more…)

Arma 3 s new single-player mission pack, Tac-Ops, popped into existence last week, introducing three presumably very serious missions to the straight-faced military sandbox. They re tricky, says developer Bohemia Interactive, and you ll need brush up on your shooting, tactical positioning and adaptability. You should also learn some army phrases, but mostly because they re fun to shout. Take a look at the trailer.

SITUATION
As our brief Christmas break draws near, we're now firstly evaluating the state of last week's Arma 3 Tac-Ops Mission Pack and Update 1.78 release. As part of that, we're likely going to deploy a small hotfix to address some of the reported issues this or next week. Once that's done, we'll start cleaning up our internal systems, lifting data locks, going through the usual 'end of the year' organizational processes, while making sure Arma 3 rolls steady into the holiday season.

For those among us who dislike going to virtual war against human opponents, Arma 3 now has three new singleplayer missions to stomp through. The Tac-Ops Mission Pack will take around eight hours to complete, according to Bohemia Interactive, and is now available for $ 5.99 / £ 4.49 on Steam.

"In Arma 3 Tac-Ops Mission Pack, players are tasked to lead an infantry, mechanized infantry, and/or special forces unit across an unrestricted warzone, often with multiple objectives to accomplish," reads Bohemia's blurb. "The keys to success are thoughtful mission preparation, careful movement and positioning, skillful shooting, as well as patience."

The missions can be played from multiple perspectives – ie, from different partaking units – which should help stretch out its staying power. Meanwhile, each mission features an After Action Report delivered by "one of Bohemia Interactive's military consultants". 

Check out the mission descriptions below, and the launch trailer at the bottom.

Beyond Hope - Nine years prior to the "East Wind" conflict, civil war rages through the Republic of Altis and Stratis.Stepping Stone - NATO reinforcements responding to the "East Wind" crisis must first secure the strategic island of Malden.Steel Pegasus - During the invasion of Altis, NATO forces stage a daring air assault to open a second front.

Arma 3 Tac-Ops Mission Pack features three military operations spread across seven missions. Additionally, you can replay selected missions from the perspective of another unit. This, in turn, rewards you with a greater understanding of the operation as a whole.
