Valve has replaced the Steam stats page with a new Steam Charts section that offers a look at the top selling and most played games on the marketplace.

It's a notable shift for anyone with an eye for metrics, with the new section featuring real-time charts for top selling and most played games, alongside weekly top sellers and monthly top new releases.

Valve said the overhaul will "provide a better overview for what is hot on Steam right now" and explained the new top selling lists rank games based on total revenue, including all sources such as DLC and in-game transactions, to deliver a "more complete view" of what games the Steam community is lapping up."This new method of calculating revenue is also being deployed across various top lists throughout the Steam store, including the Top Sellers tab on Steam's homepage, genre and tag pages," added the company.

Offering a more detailed look at its new charts, Valve explained the "overview" page will serve up a quick summary of which games are selling well, being played the most, and how many Steam users are online at any given moment.
