Remember the days of the original green Steam client, that no one particularly liked? Hard to believe that it now sees over 30 million people online.
This huge new record was hit yesterday, with the new all-time peak according to the Steam Charts page at 30,027,003. However, SteamDB lists it as 30,032,005. During this time the top games were Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, PUBG: Battlegrounds, Apex Legends and Lost Ark. So three out of the top five when Steam was at its peak work on Linux officially — not bad. About 8.5 million people were actually in-game at the time.
While I have you here: what have you been playing recently, what's your current top game on Linux? I've been sucked in really hard by Brotato, trying out all the different characters and weapons has been a lot of fun.
Currently I'm playing games on Steam that are easy to play with a controller (shoulder tendons... trying to keep my arm down). I'm on my second playthrough of Kona, which has me damned glad it's not winter yet lol. I've been playing Just Cause 4 a bit, Saints Row The Third, and my Mass Effect games.
QuoteWhile I have you here: what have you been playing recently, what's your current top game on Linux?I play the free-to-play Super Bomberman R Online daily (not to be confused with Super Bomberman R - they're completely different games), and it's rock-solid-stable under Proton - and they've never kicked out Linux players for using it, either, which has been great. It's been a very short-lived game though, and it's ending on December 1st, prior to its features being rolled into the upcoming paid sequel that it was a test-run for, Super Bomberman R 2 (for which it appears the Steam version may be the lead product - or at least that's what they've been using in official promotional events).
I've also been playing Vampire Survivors, and, non-Steam-wise, plenty of emulated stuff via RetroPie, which I use on the desktop.
Will try Victoria III today. :).
- EVE Online
- Elite: Dangerous / Odyssey (playing this game franchise since 1984...)
- Shakes & Fidgets
- V-Rising, with my wife
- Empyrion Galactic Survival
- Subsistence, with my family in my homecountry
On hold but played occasionally:
- Seven Days To Die (native)
- Valheim (native)
- Vampire Survivors
- Euro Truck Simulator 2 (native)
The backlog is just too long. I hope I can live enough to play half the titles I'm curious about.
Most of them in 4K because, you know, age-walled Deck wouldn't go easy on my eyes! ;)
I'm also still addicted to Vintage Story. Just saying. :)
