It s Halloween (month)! I don t know about you lovely lot, but there s nothing I find more spooky or chilling than charts detailing what the most popular video games are in a given week. That’s me, Fraser, filling in for John who is on holiday. A terrifying holiday, I bet.

Daddy: Hey Toby, can I get your help with some work please?

Toby: OK, but they might be disappointed I’m a cat.

This week on Steam Charts, my three-year-old son tells us all about the top ten grossing games on Steam. (more…)

NieR:Automata™ - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Alice O'Connor)

After 525 days of holding my tongue on Nier: Automata, of cautiously asking “So… what ending did you get?” and giving vague “I like Pascal too” answers so as not to spoil any surprises while wanting to tear my heart out, I’m calling an end to this: the moratorium on spoilers is over. I’ve avoided talking about Nier: Automata so much that I actually forgot parts of the game. Revisiting the game over the past few days, I’ve been amazed and delighted and heartbroken all over again, so to hell with this; let’s talk about everything. It’s not right that the only things I’ll openly say about Nier: Automata are that it’s “lovely” and “surprising” and “has a janky PC port”, when I’d much rather talk about…

We’ve just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It’s a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you’ll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there.

2018 releases Jurassic World Evolution, Far Cry 5 Kingdom Come: Deliverance and Warhammer: Vermintide II are wearing some spectacular money-hats, for example, while the relatively lesser-known likes of Raft, Eco and Deep Rock Galactic have made themselves heard above the din of triple-A marketing budgets.

Hullo! John is preoccupied with wizards right now, so I’m taking over for the rundown of last week’s top ten on Steam. It was an interesting week, bringing back some welcome old games and slamming in some shiny new ones. Largely, it’s all about robots and survival.

As I drag my groggy-faced body to the monitor at 6.30 each Monday morning, I click the bookmark for my Steam Charts RSS and scrunch up my face so my forehead and nose curl over my eyes. How bad will it be? How familiar will the list of five-year-old games be? How will I think of… BUT WHAT IS THIS?!!?! FOUR new entries! Far Cry 5 taking up only one slot! No Witcher 3! No Skyrim! It’s like Christmas, where Christmas is a day you just about get through without things being as bad as they were last year. (more…)

John is elsewhere this week, squeezed into Brendan’s luggage for a flight to San Francisco and the Game Developers Conference, so I’m here for the regular rundown of last week’s top-selling games on Steam. This week, the letters R, A, and S are well-represented with strong showings from both Mars and rats.

Greetings, readers. John, your regular guide to this hollow summary of ceaseless material consumption, is missing. We presume he has angered the company overlords with some sort of ill-judged diatribe against corporate consolidation, and has subsequently been reassigned to another media outlet, possibly The Re-education Supplement, or Gulag’s Weekly. Well, you won’t find any such insubordination from me. I have only the purest intentions of telling you the top ten best sellers on Steam this week, with a secondary goal of reinforcing the cold emptiness of our predominant mercantile culture. Let’s buy some games! (more…)

Some Monday mornings, as I plonk myself down at my desk at 6.50am and load the RSS feed for the Steam Charts, I think to myself: you know what? There are so many other things I’d like to write about today. Anyway, here are the top ten games on Steam from the last week.
