CS:GO Crowned Steam’s Best Game…Again
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (simply known as CS:GO) has kept a firm hold of its place as the number one best-selling game of 2022.
With a mouth-watering 542 consecutive weeks at the top of the Steam charts, CS:GO once again takes home the crown for having the best-selling PC game. Are we at all surprised by this? Not even in the slightest, as it’s basically been the same story ever since the game was first conceived back in 2012. And while there have been plenty of up-and-coming indies dip in and out of the spotlight since then, Valve’s online multiplayer phenomenon has, to put it lightly, pretty much butchered any hopes of anything that isn’t CS:GO from claiming the throne.
“In 1999 Counter-Strike was released as a mod for Half-Life,” the official site reads. “As the game progressed from a beta to a full release, it refined the classic gameplay that has come to define competitive shooters and produced a dedicated community that has followed the game since its first release.”
“Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) expands upon the team-based first person shooter gameplay the original Counter-Strike pioneered when it launched in 1999. Two teams compete in multiple rounds of objective-based game modes with the goal of winning enough rounds to win the match.”
