Since September 12th, 2003 Steam has held the crown for being the biggest internet-based digital distribution platform in all of gaming ecosystem. These successful 11 years have made it the go-to platform for most PC gamers. For many of you who prefer to game on the keyboard and mouse it is coveted for bringing high standards to PC gaming.

Valve hasn’t really been known to release Steam sales data, it’s previously been a rather difficult task to see what has been striking gold on the platform. Thankfully, SteamSpy‘s very own Sergey Galyonkin has taken it upon himself to sort this out. After months of meticulous work he has compiled a comprehensive list of Steam sales data which includes every single game that has ever sold at least one million copies.

You’ll find the list of the top 100 best selling titles in Steam history below. The games are listed with their name and total sales to-date. You’ll encounter a few important details as you go through the entire list. For example, the top spot is a game you’ve most probably never even heard of. This is mainly due to Steam’s Free Weekends where customers can easily download, install, and play these games for several days before the game is finally locked. These downloads are officially treated as purchases, which affects the list. It has a rather unfortunate side-effect, but at the very least has only messed around with the validity of the list on a few entries.
