PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the game I am on my way to wasting a third of my life playing (in place of sleeping), just became the fourth most played game according to the Steam Charts. At this point, PUBG is only behind DOTA 2, CSGO, and Fallout 4. While it's a whiles away from Fallout 4, there's no reason to suspect PUBG won't dominate the charts soon enough, arguably holding a consistent third place spot behind DOTA 2 and CSGO for years to come. PlayerUnknown himself tweeted the results a few days ago, clearly ecstatic about this achievement.
It's worth noting that the number of current players for PUBG far outpace any other game not called DOTA 2 or CSGO, but still don't come close to those titles' numbers. Whether PUBG has a chance at maintaining this kind of momentum is tough to say, but again, I don't see how a game like this can really die down in popularity -- largely because it so thoroughly typifies what's fun about not only playing games, but watching games -- a past time that continues to grow and grow with each passing year. We'll see, but for now, BlueHole Studios should be popping bottles or something. Getting slizzard. Remember that song? Like a G6? Alright.
