There are many tops and rankings and it would be possible to obtain one practically by applying any criteria, and of course the titles that sell the most are ones that are liked the most because they do not stop saying a lot about what all of us, as users, are consuming in a way global. But if those weekly or monthly charts are pure vice, how can we consider the one that tells us which ones have been participating for the most weeks within the best on Steam?
What are the longest-running games on the list?
We have stopped looking at the ten best sellers in the last month, or in the last year, and we have decided to go even further. Within Steam, which shows (more or less) in real time what is most successful, we have decided to select the ten names that have lasted the most weeks among the 100 most successful. Because it’s one thing to reach that list sometime in the life of a game, and quite another to stay.
So below you have the list of the ten games that have been part of the best sellers on Steam for the most weeks . Ordered from smallest to largest. Are these:
10 – Apex Legends
The battle royale from the creators of Titanfall seemed like it had nothing to do against PUBG or Fortnite, but look where… it has been almost two whole years without missing the weekly best-seller appointment.
Weeks in the top of sales: 108
9 – Phasmophobia
Terror sells and proof that there is a legion of unconditional fans is this little wonder that will take your heart out of your mouth amid so much fright and paranormal setting.
Weeks in the top of sales: 115
8 – ARK Survival Evolved
Son of the survival trend, this game has managed to stay intermittently within the top of the best sellers, coming in and going out periodically. You sure have played it.
Weeks in the top of sales: 145
7 – Destiny 2
Bungie stung with the first game but it is clear that with the second they managed to build the multiplayer FPS formula they were looking for. And its close to 200 weeks in the top of the best sellers is the proof.
Weeks in the top of sales: 175
6 – Rust
Another survival that has made a fortune on Steam and that refuses to leave because practically every week it tops the top of the best-selling games. Something will have the water when they bless it…
Weeks in the top of sales: 236
5 – Rainbow Six Siege
Ubisoft did not imagine in the best of its dreams that its multiplayer based on the Tom Clancy franchise was going to break it as it did now almost eight years ago. Assaults, defenses, police teams from all over the world and a community so loyal that it is still growing today.
Weeks in the top of sales: 317
4 – Dead by Daylight
It is another of the names that continues to ring among the players who have not tried it and that someone recommends them to have a great time together. Especially in the company of four friends where you have to hunt down one of them.
Weeks in the top of sales: 339
3 – GTA V
What to say about Rockstar’s longest-running delivery, which in 2023 will celebrate – in the month of September – ten years on the market. We hardly remember, but when it hit stores, the most modern consoles that existed were PS3 and Xbox 360. How time flies!
Weeks in the top of sales: 411
2 – Euro Truck Simulator 2
The word simulator has been added to practically any other concept in recent times and one of the most successful has been trucker games , to take and bring goods on the roads around the world. This, focused on European roads, has been the one that has destroyed everything.
Weeks in the top of sales: 413
1 – Counter Strike Global Offensive (CSGO)
And we come to the one that has been enduring the most weeks in the top of the best sellers on Steam. The multiplayer par excellence of the eSports scene and the product of Valve’s own talent that has in it a true bulwark capable of mobilizing millions of players around the world who can only buy it in the official store of Gabe Newell’s men.
Weeks in the top of sales: 538
