Twitch continues to be the top destination for live streams of gamers playing games. Although some have expressed bewilderment at the popularity of people watching others play online, the phenomenon continues on unabated. We currently only do a weekly livestream Ogre Game Time on Wednesdays, but one foreign livestreamer has came from our community and found quite a bit of success and we plan on offering more livestreams in the future. On the flip side, just going through Twitch as a viewer and looking at all the different games and channel, it is hard not to have fun. All types of games and systems are represented for a large amount of variety. Tonight, for example, I went into a channel for Rocket League where the channel owner was giving away a PC and the spam in chat was insane. You had to type in a keyword and then the winner was chosen by roll. In another channel, it was a 2 year old wrestling game where six divas were throwing each other off a towering cage onto the floor. The chat was all explosive with not a single non capitalized letter to be found.

The most watched games were mostly action packed. Some are new and some are not so new. If I had to name the top four genres represented, MOBAs, shooters, sandbox games, and then MMORPGs would top the list. Some of the ones listed below are no-brainers but there are a few surprises. These are listed in terms of popularity at the time of this writing. Some games were skipped over for mainly games that we cover on the PC. However, those are the top two without a doubt.

Top Twitch Games (PC)

League of Legends – The top MOBA and the most popular game on Twitch a lot of the time.

Hearthstone – The most watched card game by far.

Counterstrike Global Offensive – Leads the pack for online shooters.

DOTA 2 – The second most popular MOBA.

H1Z1 – The most surprising game in popularity and the top for any sandbox game.

Grand Theft Auto V – Seems to fluctuate quite a bit.

Minecraft – Thought this would be higher.

Smite – Third ranked MOBA.

Runescape – The highest Free MMORPG.

World of Warcraft – No surprise that it tops all pay MMORPGs.

Diablo 3 – Among four or five other games by Blizzard that rank high.

Heroes of the Storm – My pick for this genre, but it is not doing that hot compared to the others.

Ark: Survival Evolved – Among the best in survival sandbox games.

World of Tanks – Still chugging along with its two spin-offs, World of Warplanes and World of Battleships.

Rocket League – New game that is already doing well.

  4. @Awen, Twitch is basically a video platform where you can watch people play games. You can also stream your own games and build an audience for yourself too.

  5. So much has changed with popularity of games on Twitch. It used to be League of Legends that dominated the streaming site all of the time, especially in the 2010s, but then sometimes you started seeing CS:GO, GTA V, or some other popular game take the #1 spot, but usually for a short time. But then in 2017, Fortnite seem to take the #1 spot for months, and then you had Among Us taking the spot for some time in 2020. One thing is for sure: popularity of games fluctuate, especially as new trends adapt.
