Each week, gamers around the world log onto digital distribution platform Steam, to get their latest gaming fix, and every week, Player Attack lets you know which games were the most popular.
I don’t even know what to say at this point. It’s 2017 and there are roughly one billion games available on Steam, but everybody is still buying this one. Surely by now, you’re picking up second and third copies, right? It’s some sort of a game in itself, to see how many copies you can own?
…or am I looking at this all the wrong way? Do these sales figures really represent all-new people buying the game each week? Is this actually a sign of just how great Rockstar really is? Have the team created the best game of all time? If you’ve bought Grand Theft Auto V in the past month or so (including as part of any big sales), can you let me know why?
|Grand Theft Auto V
When a young street hustler, a retired bank robber and a terrifying psychopath find themselves entangled with some of the most frightening and deranged elements of the criminal underworld, the U.S. government and the entertainment industry, they must pull off a series of dangerous heists to survive in a ruthless city in which they can trust nobody, least of all each other.
