Sometimes it's interesting to see what is selling really well in the PC games market to see if there is something, which might have otherwise been off-the-radar, which offers a bundle of entertainment value. So what new (2015) games are the best sellers so far this year on Steam? According to Steam Spy (via MCV), Grand Theft Auto V, Cities Skylines and Rocket League are among the top sellers.

Steam Spy revealed that the top selling new Steam games of 2015 are as follows:

All the above were released this year and have gone on to pass the 1 million sales milestone in sales through the Steam platform. Another six new games have sold over half a million on Steam this year and those games are; Dying Light, The Witcher 3, Stranded Deep, Killing Floor 2, Total War: Attila, Pillars of Eternity.

If readers are surprised about The Witcher 3 only having sold between 500K and a million copies on Steam (actual number seems to be 770K), they must remember that more gamers bought it via the DRM-free GOG site. Also, of the reportedly over 6 million sales of The Witcher 3, the majority were sold on the PS4 and Xbox One platforms.

MCV reports that there are a number of older games still selling like hot cakes that have racked up another million sales on Steam in the current year. Those cash cows include the likes of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

Ark Survival Evolved… looks to be a pretty decent game from the short free weekend trial I had, but it desperately needs lots of optimization.

Deffo want to get Rocket League!!!
Strangely enough I do not any of those games despite my huge steam library :P

I've got my eye on 3 of them though - and I'll be sure to get them on a steam sale!
I have two of them, GTA5 which was the first game I have bought new since 2012 and Cities Skylines which I picked up in the summer sale for not very much of a discount. Ark and besieged were on my steam wish list but Ark turned out to be a multiplayer focused game, which i'm not at all into and I just lost interest in Besieged. The next games' I really want is Mad Max and Just Cause 3, but they will have to wait for a big discount as I now need to sink a load of dosh into renovating a house.

Also, H1Z1 was on my radar but did the developers not abandon it or something ?
Must admit at the moment I am loving Mad Max, working silky smoot on my now ageing rig which just to say meets minimum.

Do it.
Possibly the most “oh just one more go” game I've played in my life.
Simple to pick up, hard to master - with some joyous moments of fluke/skill on the way.
