As Sunday’s unstoppable virus continues its gruesome pandemic into a new week, it looks like more people than ever are turning to video games to survive. On the 10th Sunday since the outbreak began, on January 2, Steam broke its simultaneous user record, hitting just 28 million.

More than the entire population of Madagascar logged in Valves pc monopoly online store at the same time yesterday, the total number reached 27,942,036. (Thanks u / Turbostrider27.) Considering that at the time of writing – when most of the US is still in bed – it is at 26,919,922, which seems to be a record that is likely to be broken again today. Not least because it’s the 11th Sunday in a row.

According to the statistics reported by SteamDB, somewhere between seven and eight million of these people were actually in the game at the same time, the other 20 million presumably browsing the endless sales or telling someone else to “git god” on a discussion forum instead of facing their own emotional matches.

Most of these people played Counter attack despite all other possible possibilities, with Dota 2, PUBG: Battlegrounds (which represents PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds: Battlegrounds), Apex Legends and GTA V make up the rest of the top five. Yes, the most recently released game that dominates PC games is from 2019, the next from 2017.

Meanwhile, scientists are still wondering when this Sunday plague will end after starting on December 24 last year, and they show no sign of stopping as New Year’s Day is unlikely to have leaked into this week. There is hope that weekdays can be restored at some point this month, allowing people to regain a sense of foundation and understanding of the passage of time, and remember the date despite being only a handful of days in. in a new year.
