Two of 2017’s long-term favorites continue to tussle at the top of this download chart selections, stealth game “Seven: The Days Long Gone” overtakes GOG ever-present “Divinity: Original Sin 2” and a “Doom” bundle makes it to the peak of Fanatical.

It’s been just over eight months straight that round-based multiplayer island survival game “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” has been top of the Steam charts, where we find it ahead of fellow perennial “Grand Theft Auto V” in second.

On the Humble Store, the “PUBG” and “GTA V” 1-2 is repeated. “PUBG” is not sold through GameStop at this time, so “GTA V” scores another first place, while recently released “The Sims 4” expansion, “Cats & Dogs” is in fourth.

Fanatical continues its relaunch, having been trading as Bundle Stars for just shy of five years, its chart led by a “Doom” bundle that offers 2016’s hit shooter for 66 percent off and an optional second tier that includes the franchise’s 1993 original and its 2004 “threequel.”

And on GOG, stealth game “Seven: The Days Long Gone” sneaks in, followed by a flurry of good reviews for the debut game whose new studio of veterans came over from “The Witcher” franchise and elsewhere, but the recent release can’t yet get the best of two classic “Jazz Jackrabbit” compilations.
