Steam's most-played games of 2016 weren't released in 2016

More games on Steam doesn't mean more money for Valve

Steam saw an unprecedented influx of new games in 2016. Of all the titles added to the distribution service since its 2003 launch, 38 percent of them were added last year. Many of those games are very bad, sure, but there's no questioning t...   read
