5 Addicting steam games that you have never heard of

Do you ever find yourself looking for a fresh new game to really let yourself go? Based on over 35 million reviews on steam we selected 5 games that could be worth your time.

Selection criteria

We used the following filters to discover the games:

1 - Steam rating > 90 %

We are only interested in high rated games and only included games with a rating above 90%.

2 - Only games

We only included actual games which made us exclude some great streaming tools and VR tools.

3 - Between 100 and 1000 steam reviews

As we are looking for unknown games, we wanted this to be as low as possible. However we believe that games with too few reviews are not representative either.

In the end we had 1.349 games on steam fitting the above criteria. Our selection consists of the 5 most played games.
