Looking for good PC mining games on Steam? Look no further, as we're ranking the best Steam mining games that you'll definitely find worth your time. The Steam Store can be frustrating to browse, as they often are too gratuitous with their tagging system. To ensure that you find exactly what you're looking for, browse this list of the best mining PC games on Steam.

For mining games, the popularity of Minecraft was just the inspiration game developers needed to invest in adding to the genre. The mining game SteamWorld Dig is the second in the SteamWorld series and is an action-adventurer with gameplay clearly influenced by the Metroidvania subgenre. In My Time at Portia, players become part of the town of Portia, where they must carry out typical mining game tasks, for example growing crops and allocating resources, in order to stay relevant and win.
