Steam – Top Selling VR Games & Top Controller Games of 2021

Steam - Top Selling VR Games & Top Controller Games of 2021

With the year coming to an end, the Steam team shared a blog post that goes into detail in a variety of “best of” lists for 2021. In particular, the team shared the Top Selling VR Games and Top Controller games of the year.

The Top Selling VR list represents the 100 best-selling VR-only experiences of 2021. Like the Top Sellers list, these are based on revenue. While many games on Steam offer supplemental VR modes and experiences, the team limited this list to VR-only to showcase games that are designed solely for the virtual realm.

“Although this list requires that an app be VR-only, many existing games on Steam added VR support and VR dedicated modes throughout the year. If you’re thinking of buying a VR device, chances are you might have a game in your library with optional VR support.”

The Top Controller Games list represents the titles that registered the most controller sessions during the year. Specifically, it’s a ranking of games based on the highest number of unique controller players that they reached through December 15th, 2021.

“With the growth of games and player numbers on Steam during 2021, it’s not surprising that the amount of controller sessions went up during the year as well. Whether it was a console controller, a flight stick, or a dance pad, millions of unique devices connected players to their games during 2021.”
