A plethora of game titles find their way to the Steam store each year, but it’s barely a handful of these that are able to attract the community and amass a following.

Just like every year, Valve, the company behind the popular Steam store, has compiled today the best-selling game titles for the first half of 2018. This list has some of the most well-known games, such as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Grand Theft Auto V (an all-time favorite), and Fallout 4. A very recent release, Jurassic Park: Evolution, has also made a surprise appearance on the list.

The top-selling games from the first half of the year have been divided into 4 categories, namely platinum, gold, silver, and bronze, depending on their popularity. You can check out the game titles in each category listed down below:

Platinum Games

PlayerUnkown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) leads the way in this category with games such as Rocket League, Rainbow Six Siege and GTA V also making the cut. Perennial favourites such as Dota 2, CS:GO, Civilization VI as well as this year’s smash-hit title Far Cry 5 also made the Platinum category.

Steam also added games such as Kingdom Come Deliverance, Warframe, Vermintide 2 ad Jurassic World: Evolution in the Platinum section.
