Elden Ring Dominates Steam’s Best-Seller List
The list of the best-selling games on Steam for the past week has been revealed, and it’s no surprise that From Software’s long-awaited Elden Ring topped the charts, while Destiny 2’s Witch Queen expansion also fared well. Elden Ring ranked in the top three positions on Steam for the week ending February 27, 2022. It was able to hold on to more than one position because, like many other games, it has multiple purchase options. Steam’s own backend lists them as individual games, and this data is pulled and compiled by SteamDB.
Destiny 2: The Witch Queen Deluxe Edition was fourth in week eight of 2022, while the standard edition ranked sixth for the week. Steam’s own console, Steam Deck, came in at number seven, while Dying Light 2, Total War: Warhammer III, and Cyberpunk 2077 were also top sellers.
In GameSpot’s review of Elden Ring, the game received a rare 10/10 rating. Reviewer Tamur Hussain said, “Elden Ring takes the pieces of what came before and turns them into something that will go down in history as one of the greatest achievements of all time: a triumph in design and creativity, and an open-world game that distinguishes himself for what he doesn’t do as much as for what he does.”
