Rounding out 2018 on the desktop front, PC giant Valve has revealed what cooked most on Steam for the year in a number of categories. From the top 100 sellers as "measured by gross revenue" for 2018 to the Top Early Access Graduates -- games that left Early Access in 2018, also measured by gross revenue for the year -- here's Valve's breakdown of how you voted with your wallet for PC gaming in 2018.
Unsurprisingly in the Top Sellers Platinum department, PUBG and DOTA2 maintained their position in the upper echelon, and were accompanied by the likes of Grand Theft Auto V (likely more to do with GTA Online), The Elder Scrolls Online, Warframe and Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

In the Top New Releases category, Valve has broken this list up into month-by-month which features a heady list of Indies and Triple-As padding out the year.

Dead Cells, Rust and Subnautica join a cast of graduates, as mentioned in our intro, of games that left Early Access for full retail release in the Best of 2018 Early Access Grads
And finally, unsurprisingly it's Valve's own top releases that round out the year in the Best of 2018 Most Played
category lead by Dota 2, Team Fortress 2 and CS:GO. Alongside them we see PUBG, Rainbow Six Siege, Monster Hunter World and Path of Exile: Betrayal among another impressive list.
