It was always going to happen, but it was nice to see something else at the top while it lasted.
Last week it was great to see Fallout 4 dethrone the two kings of Steam: Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the Valve games that had reigned supreme for what feels like an eternity.
Bethesda's gargantuan RPG didn't have more players overall, of course, but anything that shakes up the top is nice to see. Unfortunately, that time has since come to an end.
What's interesting, however, is the fact that the presence of Fallout 4 hasn't been a zero-sum game for CS:GO or Dota 2. CS:GO has almost 7,000 more players on average over the last 30 days, while Dota 2 has almost 8,000 more players on average over the last 30 days.
Dota 2 is also enjoying its highest peak player count over the last 30 days since May this year, although the figure is significantly lower than the 1.2 million plus who jumped into the free-to-play MOBA across February and March.
