It’s safe to say that online video games continue to dominate the video game market. As we live in an increasingly digital age, the need for online video games that allow us to connect with people has continued to grow exponentially. This is especially the case now that some people have discovered the power of online gaming during the COVID-19 lockdown and are now enjoying it over conventional gaming experiences. So, what are the most popular, biggest video game experiences in the online realm of 2022? There are lots of potential candidates, but let’s take a look at the ones that have managed to dominate the year, from the heights of Casumo’s Live Casino to culture itself.
The enduring appeal of Minecraft is probably something that not even the developers themselves saw coming. What started out as a simple game with sandbox mechanics grew into a billion-pound industry that has continuously inspired generations of artists, game developers, and creatives.
With the YouTube content creator scene having a reliable cohort of Minecraft players that have seen their careers shoot to amazing heights from the game, right the way through to the latest updates, it’s not exactly difficult to see that Minecraft is such a popular online game. After all, the potential for what you can do with it is theoretically limitless.
Whether or not you like Fortnite is largely irrelevant, because the game has become a juggernaut that seemingly cannot be stopped.
Practically, every popular part of modern culture has found its way into the game. There’s Spider-Man, superheroes, characters from other television shows, iconic weapons and characters, memes – everything that’s relevant winds up in Fortnite eventually. It’s a real testament to the popularity of the game that the latest superhero entry to come out in the DC Universe, Black Adam, has immediately entered a crossover with Fortnite.
When it was first announced that the Pokémon franchise would be releasing a game that was like League of Legends, people weren’t sure what to think. However, it was at that point that we got Pokémon Unite, and it’s safe to say that the game has grown in popularity substantially over the last year.
With a plethora of characters being added to the roster every month, regular events, a competitive scene, and hundreds of content creators, using the game to connect with fans, Pokémon Unite isn’t actually that bad. It might take a little while to get used to the longtime fans of the franchise, and everything you know about type advantages doesn’t apply, but it’s a lot of fun if you have friends to play with.
So, the online video game industry has won, which has grown significantly over the last year. Despite the fact that the COVID-19 lockdown is pretty much over, a lot of online games have continued to maintain the popularity that they gained during the pandemic, and it’s not difficult to see why. Being able to play online with friends is a great way to stay connected, so these games are here to stay
