Most Popular PC Games: Turkey
After conducting extensive research, we could not provide a list of the top five PC games in Turkey as of 2019 because the information is not publicly available. However, we found that the top five PC games in Turkey as of 2017 include League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, GTA San Andreas & GTA 5, Wolf Team, and Minecraft.

We began by searching for various local news sources and industry-specific publications such as tech magazines and gaming magazines which might have articles with a list of the top five best-selling and most-played PC games in Turkey. The sites consulted include Haberler.com, PCNet, and Hürriyet. Using this strategy, we found a list of the top five PC games by the number of players — however, the most recent list dated back to 2017.
To find a more recent list, we searched for 2019 PC games market reports in Turkey. We hoped to find segmentation charts of games that contributed the most to the revenue of the computer games market in Turkey, which we would then use as a proxy to determine the best-selling or most played games in the country. However, the most recent relevant report dates back to 2016. Though a few 2019 PC games market reports exist, they mostly focus on the global market, with a brief focus (not relevant to the request) on Turkey.
As a last resort, we checked for awards given to best-selling computer games in Turkey, to find out which games have received the awards in 2019 and determine the top five best-selling games in the country as of 2019. To find this information, we searched for Turkish game awards, and The Game Awards' website to see if they offer awards to best-selling games in Turkey. However, we found that no awards exist in Turkey for best-selling games.
