Thanksgiving is a time for eating, family, and apparently video games. A gaming platform has broken its record for concurrent players during the weekend, evidence that gaming isn't going anywhere despite decreasing social restrictions.
Autumn is a big time for Steam, the largest digital video game marketplace and platform in the world.
This Thanksgiving holiday, Steam broke its own record for the number of concurrent players using the service, reaching 27,384,959 gamers.
Social restrictions as a result of COVID-19 boosted player numbers on Steam (as well as on other platforms) by a lot.
Steam's record-breaking achievement isn't a testament to their service necessarily, but to the games that are hosted on it.
