It was a big year for video games tied to some of our favorite franchises, as Steam reveals their best games of 2023.


Steam broke down the biggest games of 2023 with seven different categories: Top Sellers (the best-selling games on Steam), New Releases (the best-selling games on Steam that were released in 2023), Most Played (games that peaked at over 300,000 concurrent players), Early Access (2023’s top Early Access graduates, measured by gross revenue), Steam Deck (the most-played games of 2023 on Steam Deck, as measured by Daily Active Players) Controller (the most-played games of 2023, measure by Daily Active Controller Players), and VR (2023’s top VR-exclusive experiences, measured by gross revenue).

Within each of these categories, games are ranked at different levels, starting with Platinum as the highest, then Gold, then Silver, and finally, Bronze. Only 12 games make Platinum level for each category, and “Hogwarts Legacy,” “Disney Dreamlight Valley,” “Marvel Snap,” and “Star Wars Jedi: Survivor” together managed to make it in the top 12 of six of the seven categories.
