Steam top ten sellers: August 16-22

Rocket League fell from the top spot of Steam’s weekly best sellers chart for the first time since its launch, as Ark: Survival Evolved was able to retake peak position thanks to a discount offer.

Promotions meaningfully shook up the top five for the first time in nearly two months. Ark and Counter-Strike took advantage of their sales to finish one and two, respectively.

Rocket League dropped to third, pushing Grand Theft Auto V down one spot from its accustomed position over the last couple months, while new Left 4 Dead-themed content and a discount promotion for Zombie Army Trilogy had the game climbing up to round out the top five.

Former chart regular Payday 2 also had a good week, with its standard and GOTY editions both checking in on the top ten. From the full list:

  1. Ark: Survival Evolved
  2. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
  3. Rocket League
  4. Grand Theft Auto V
  5. Zombie Army Trilogy
  6. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
  7. H1Z1
  8. Payday 2
  9. Payday 2: GOTY Edition
  10. Planetary Annihilation: Titans
