CHARTS: Grand Theft Auto V shoots its way to the top spot

Rockstar's criminally-charged Grand Theft Auto V climbed one place to take the Steam top spot last week.

Last month, it was revealed that the law-defying game was the best-selling title of the last decade in both the US and the UK.

Once again, Capcom has two entries this week, the first being Monster Hunter World: Iceborne at No.2. Its second entry is the base game of the monster-slaying title, Monster Hunter: World sits at No.9.

By March 2019, 4.5 million copies had been sold for PC - the platform is the second largest for Monster Hunter players. Furthermore, as of July 2019, more than 13 million units of the fantasy RPG have been shipped worldwide.

In third place this week is Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar's western hit came to PC in November 2019, a month later, it came to Valve's storefront. In fourth place, Humble Bundle's pokemon inspired early access title Temtem - the game dropped three places from last week's top spot.

At No.5 is a second early access title, Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem by Wolcen Studio. In sixth place is the ever-present battle royale Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. Last month, a new map was unveiled. Professional PUBG players have claimed that 2020 would be a crucial year for the battle royale as a competitive esport.

A third early access game takes the No.8 spot this week. Stoneshard by HypeTrain Digital can currently be purchased for 10 per cent off. Closing the chart this week is Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition by Xbox Game Studios.

Here is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending February 8th:

  1. Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar
  2. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, Capcom
  3. Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar
  4. Temtem, Humble Bundle
