If after Steam users it seems clear anyway: it’s not Elden Ring or the Power Wash Simulator that are currently the best-rated game on Valve’s platform, but the one that was only recently released Stray (buy now ). Also in In our test, the fluffy adventure with its chic graphics and the even chicer cat got a pretty good grade.
