Following a Nov 20 release, Farming Simulator 19 weathered the best of a Thanksgiving Sale to place first on Steam and then second on Gamersgate, while Fallout 76 made first on Humble despite launch difficulties.
Farming Simulator 19 made the most of a quiet week and staked out territory at the top of Steam's revenue-based chart, debuting in first place ahead of big hitters and popular discount titles Monster Hunter: World, Total War: Warhammer II, Assassin's Creed Odyssey and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.
That was perhaps aided by the fact that World War II action game Battlefield V launched through its publisher's own PC network, Origin, where it is currently the most popular purchase ahead of FIFA 19, Madden NFL 19 and The Sims 4.
While Farming Simulator 19 took first on Steam, with a second place spot on Gamersgate to boot, Fallout 76 performed admirably on Humble in the face of design, programming, and network performance issues.
As the first multiplayer entry to the modern Fallout era, it allows squads of up to four to reclaim a patch of irradiated alternate-history West Virginia, northeastern USA.
Meanwhile, the Fanatical store prospered with a well-timed discount on franchise predecessor Fallout 4, the far better received foundation for Fallout 76 multiplayer advancement.
