Steam, that Ur-platform of digital games distribution we all know so well, isn’t always great when it comes to discovering new, obscure titles. Many are lost in the sea of new releases, which expands at a faster rate every year. Fortunately there’s Steam 250, a site that uses Steam’s own data to compile lists of the best games on the service.
We went ahead and made our own list of the best free games on Steam.
What’s particularly nice about Steam 250 is that you can choose the list that uses data you’re most interested in. While Steam’s own rankings tend to focus on raw sales numbers, Steam 250 incorporates player reviews into their calculation, working out their ranking by comparing reviews with number of votes.
