Steam Revamps Stats Into Charts With Better Overview of Most Popular Games

Reading now: 892

In an industry notorious for being wildly secretive around how well its own products do, we love some real good, crunchy data.

And with an overhaul to Steam Stats today, Valve is giving us exactly that.It's called Steam Charts now, replacing Steam Stats, and like the old version, it still shows off the most popular games on the platform.

But unlike Stats, Charts has the tools to drill down into what's making that popularity happen. For context, the old Stats page mostly focused on top games by player count from moment to moment, with Valve regularly providing separate best-seller lists by genre and other factors.

Charts puts all this in one spot. The main page shows the top-selling games on Steam right now, as well as the most-played moment-to-moment by player count.
