Stray VS God of War for the game title of 2022
Before its release on July 19, the Stray video game was one of the most anticipated on Steam: it was in the first place of the most desired game by players on Steam. A “top 1” which has been converted into another since last week since Stray has recently been the highest rated game on Valve’s platform. Testifies to this the ranking of ”Steam250”, a site that ranks games based on player approvals. A site that came into existence after its founders noticed a huge disparity between the games gamers were willing to buy and the games gamers were willing to recommend:
Most of our leaderboards use player votes to determine a rank. These votes are made up of thumbs up or thumbs down for each test left on Steam. Any player can vote, as long as they own the title and have played it for at least five minutes.
Indeed, there are several classifications. The one that interests us about Stray is the one of the year: it is currently at the top of the best rated games of 2022, ahead of the PC port of a certain God of War. A little cat stronger than a god of war?
But also in the top 50 of the best games in history
In addition to this ranking, it is also interesting to note its rise in power in other categories where many blockbusters are also present. For example, the top category of “Best games of all time” is made up of a podium trusted by Portal 2, Terraria and Stardew Valley. Other gems are also present there, such as Hollow Knight (20th) or The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt (25th). Regarding our cat game, he is in 49th place in this ranking: he is surrounded by Tomb Raider and South Park: The Stick of Truth.
Before jumping to conclusions about the popularity of a particular game, it is worth remembering that the previously mentioned rankings only concern the PC version of the titles. On this subject, Stray was also released on PlayStation consoles (4 and 5).
