        Or just use the official website from steam:

        Also, numbers may be off since the counter does not include the official client such as GTAV who runs on Steam and their own client. The stats will not include GTAV’s client.

      noob you only said steam games so dota would be number one and League wouldnt be included TRASH GTFO

  • Ahmad free download games

  • Meng Megyer

    I dont now but legaue of legend not to good. Because when you played ranked more hard to win. If you solo played not recommended. starcraft 2 diablo 2 good because can playable solo campagnai and multiplayer as well. Word of warcraft good but pvp pve dungeon to much wating time. And not evry cast can play solo dungeon or boos. i just say my experience. i think the best starcraft 2. Legaue legend free yeah but if you want skin cost real money more and more. Starcraft 2 one time after if you see skin or commander you can buy.
