CHARTS: Fall Guys has been best-selling Steam game for six weeks now

Mediatonic's smash hit Fall Guys was once again the top-selling game on Steam last week.

This is the sixth time since its release at the start of August that the chaotic and colourful title has held the No.1 spot on PC. The game was downloaded over seven million times on Steam alone during its first month on sale.

Second place goes to Among Us from Innersloth, a title that launched over two years ago but has seen a surge of popularity in the last five weeks.

Crusader Kings took third place this week, while the special Royal Edition charted in No.7. This is the eagerly-awaited follow-up to Paradox's strategy series. Meanwhile, Craftopia from Pocket Pair rose four places up the Steam charts this week, coming in No.4. Valve's Index VR headset was the fifth best-selling item of the week, coming in ahead of Marvel's Avengers from Square Enix, which came in at No.6. That title debuted in at the No.5 spot last week.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning - a remaster of the beloved title - came in eighth place following its launch on September 8th, while the Definitive Edition of fellow RPG Divinity: Original Sin 2 clocked in at No.9 this week.

Rounding off the bottom of the Steam charts is the latest entry in the NBA 2K series of basketball titles.
