PUBG has bigger numbers playing than any other game on steam in history, even DOTA 2

and more viewership numbers than League of Legends, COD, DOTA2

what game can dethrone PUBG?

new Half life?

DOTA 3?

Warcraft 4?

Overwatch 2?

PUBG 2?

a single player game like half life 3 (even if it did ever come to fruition) would never 'dethrone' a fad like PUBG. that being said, it's extremely hard to predict what the next big thing will be since most of these things thrive on "new" mechanics and gameplay and such.

obviously league copied dota, but it brought the previously niche genre into the mainstream, just as i'm sure PUBG did with the big battle royale style and overwatch before it.

It's dead, Jim. Game over, man, game over.

etc etc

Valve is too far up their own arse with microtransactions to f***ing care about putting out a single player game that players actually want. Instead they'd rather put out utter s*** like Artifact, yet ANOTHER card game that no one wants. I mean for f***'s sake just because we're on PC doesn't mean that we're all nerds that like playing s*** like Magic the Gathering or whatever is in these days. Oh but wait, it's easy to make it free to play then make everyone buy decks in order to compete online. Pay to win bulls***.

Ahem. Well that went off topic quick.

I'm sure something else will come along that will dethrone PUBG. Maybe DOTA 3, maybe Overwatch 2. The others - no.

It's actually quite impressive that PUBG, a paid game with fairly heavy requirements (compared to DOTA 2) is top of the charts on Steam.

As for the game itself, people that sit in the blue circle just to shoot you in the back as you get to the safe zone is f***ing frustrating. The gameplay is a bit clunky, but winning a gunfight is really satisfying. I wouldn't mind a custom game mode that had just melee, crossbows and bows (the latter would need to be added), just for that Hunger Games fix. On the whole, it's enjoyable most of the time.

It is hugely popular on Steam, have you even bothered to look at the most played games list/active players? Granted, I have little/no interest in it personally, and certainly don't consider it "king of PC games", it looks like another game with marginal gameplay that gained popularity from appealing to streamers and because of multi-player antics, not innate gameplay, but that's just one man's opinion.
