Today, January 3, more than 12.3 million people logged into the service at the same time. That represents a new all-time high, surpassing 10.7 million in October. The uptick might be at least partially attributable to the Christmas-New Year week, when many students are out of school and adults off work.

Steam is one of the most prominent platforms in PC gaming. By Valve's latest count, it had more than 125 million registered users and 6,000-plus games.

The top titles right now are Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Fallout 4 , Grand Theft Auto V. Check out the top 10 Steam titles below.
