If you’re new to watching people stream games live on sites like Twitch and YouTube, we’ve got you covered. Streamers get huge audiences by playing some of the most popular games around, so we’ll show you a few of the best adventures they’re having. And who knows, maybe you’ll get inspired to give it a try yourself!
Fortnite seems to be the only game everyone is talking about these days and so far it’s been the most popular game to watch on Twitch in 2018. A shooter game that pits 100 players in a battle to claim top spot, Fortnite lets players form a squad with friends or go it alone to come out on top. Whether you’re watching someone else’s stream or joining the battle yourself, you’re bound to have bags of fun.
Deck-building games like Hearthstone asks players to sheathe their sword and instead draw cards, summon creatures and cast spells in order to defeat their opponent. It’s easy to learn, difficult to master and more importantly, bags of fun. These games are super popular for streaming because players get to show off their strategies and new cards, while their audience picks up a thing or two as well.
Ever since its release back in 2016, Overwatch has had a massive online following. Each player picks out their favourite hero (from intelligent hamsters to cyborgs) and battle in teams of 5 over a series of objectives. It even has an official eSports league with teams from all around the world, proving it’s just as popular as it has ever been.
Love it or hate it, Football is going nowhere. We don’t need to tell you what happens in this game. Every version of FIFA is consistently one of the most watched games online. Even Premier League clubs are getting involved in eSports tournaments, so we think these football games are here to stay.
Fancy giving streaming a go yourself? We’d recommend playing something that you’re passionate about – people are more interested in watching when they can tell you’re enjoying yourself! Plus, you’ll end up interacting with people that are similar to you, which will make your experience even better.
