An old game that has been out for many years (May 2011) has became the third most popular game on Steam for the day: Terraria. Of course, this was likely caused by the long awaited 1.3 update that looks so massive that it takes an enormous amount of scrolling to get to the bottom of it. We also added a new dedicated Terraria forum for the ogres who play the game. We even may play this game soon during our Ogre Game Time tomorrow at 3PM Central on the OgreMedia channel via Twitch.
The rest of the top games on Steam for Tuesday were not too surprising since two were classics from Valve and one was the the best MOBA after League of Legends right now. The other surprise was a little free game called Clicker Heroes. Past the first five, there were not that many surprises. Stallwarts like Warframe, Rust, Grand Theft Auto 5, Garry’s Mod, Civ 5, CS, and CS: Source, Borderlands 2, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim were all there.
Five Most Popular Steam Games Today:
1. Dota 2 – The most played MOBA on Steam.
2. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive – Also popular on Game Ogre.
3. Terraria – The update was the main reason here.
4. Team Fortress 2 – All-time shooting classic.
5. Clicker Heroes – Free game that is simple yet fun.
The big question for Terraria is whether it can stay in the top 5 post update or will the update be a disappointment. Hopefully, it can continue this momentum because I remember quite a long time ago when the game was not supposed to get anymore updates. Thankfully, that was not the case:).
Clicker heroes is number 5 thats kinda insane
It’s quite surprising to see a clicker game to be number 5 on this list.
Nice article. Those TOP 5 Games deserved their places, but I think TERA should be somewhere there, too.
TERA is good a MMORPG for sure.
I think 2. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive – Also popular on Game Ogre.
should be first,I am happy cuz clicker heroes are 5 place the game deserves it I hope for some years clicker heroes will be first cuz game is sick 😛
CS:GO is very popular and it’s obvious why that is!
Well in my opinion my favorite steam game is AQD3.
Most of active forum members agree with your choice and i am one of them!
Of course! It’s pretty popular 2D sandbox game.
Yeah this game is fun tho
Terraria can certainly be a fun game to play. There are many things do to.
I have only played one game out of this list and it is Team Fortress 2, but i have not played it in a while.
I have tried Dota, TF2 and CS:GO and they’re all great games!
Popular games hasn’t changed too much over the years, especially with CS:GO and Dota 2 still at the top spots, but a couple of Battle Royale games have made it to the top 5. Furthermore, Team Fortress 2 moved down as the 8th most popular game on Steam, Terraria is the 24th most popular, and Clicker Heroes isn’t even in the top 100s.
Right now according to SteamCharts, the top 5 games are:
2) Dota 2
3) GTA V
5) Apex Legends
It’s not surprising that PUBG and Apex Legends are up there since Battle Royale was the dominant genre since 2017.
