Absolutely all the games in the most-played category were played also by me or I watched them on streaming platforms. However, there are a few things that impressed me.

Grand Theft Auto 5 remains popular seven years after its initial release thanks to updates and fresh Grand Theft Auto Online content. Same for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and PUBG. Cyberpunk 2077 reached the list of the most played games even if it had some problems.
