SAN FRANCISCO, Nov 29 — If you want to know what gaming enthusiasts think were the must-have PC games of 2016, check out the Thanksgiving weekend store charts, where recent release and theme park creation set Planet Coaster is joined by Grand Theft Auto V, The Witcher 3, Doom and Fallout 4.
Grand Theft Auto V tops the Steam chart, this year’s Hitman and the PC version of Rise of the Tomb Raider fill the GameStop sales ranking, and Ubisoft’s Far Cry Primal, Watch Dogs 2 and The Division comprise most of the GamersGate rundown.
Intense business-building game Offworld Trading Company is GOG’s bestseller on November 28, 2016, while Skyrim keeps finding new owners, reclaiming the Humble Store’s peak in the process.
Not all of these were new releases for 2016, either —Grand Theft Auto V, Fallout 4, The Division and The Witcher 3 are among the biggest names from 2015, with Skyrim now 5 years old — illustrating their lasting appeal both generally and at lowered prices.
On Itchio, all of the site’s top 30 best-selling games are usually available for free (or for a voluntary payment) but are also currently part of charity package A Good Bundle, available for a minimum US$2 (RM8.92) payment, for a limited time.
