Four of those aren't available on Steam: Sims, Overwatch, Sims 4: City Living and Battlefield. So yeah, people are buying those elsewhere. And I expect GFK doesn't have access to Steam sales data, so that would knock out PUBG and the two CS titles on the Steam list. It would also explain why the Steam list has Stardew Valley up, since it was on sale. Shadow of Mordor was, too, but that game's been on $5-8 sale half a dozen times already, so I'm not sure why it got propelled up so high this time.

Aside from that, I think you can write up Football Manager as GB gamers being different. And on the Steam side, Fire Pro Wrestling World is probably a US thing.

I don't get it! This list is except for GTA V completely different from the Steam bestsellers of the same week. Isn't Steam the monopoly it wants to be and more people are buying elsewhere or are GB gamer just different?
