The popularity of video games has grown in recent years faster than that of any other type of entertainment. Online games, in particular, have attracted more players all over the world in recent years. But in this article, we will focus on popular online games in the United States.
With the recent health crisis situation, the appeal of online gaming in the United States and around the world has increased dramatically and continues to grow. While young people and young adults are more attracted to more traditional live video games, many American adults are also finding entertainment by playing live games online for fun, as it is now legal in a growing number of states. For example, Americans can easily play blackjack online with live dealers in New Jersey or many other states.
Let’s take a look at the three most popular online games in the US
The popularity of “Fortnite” in the United States is indisputable even though it only gained attention a few years ago. Since then, many other games have tried to steal its popularity. But this game has managed to maintain its position and constantly recover from the blows dealt by momentarily popular games like “Among us” and “fall guys.” In the United States, “Fortnite” continues to gain popularity as the number of players increases day by day. The United States has been the first country to consistently play the game in recent months.
“Fortnite” is considered one of the best first-person shooters available. Released in 2017, the online video game developed by Epic Games comes in three distinct game mode versions namely “Fortnite: Save the World,” “Fortnite Battle Royale” and “Fortnite Creation.”
Developed by Swedish video game developer Mojang Studios, “Minecraft” was released to the public in May 2009 and fully released in November 2011. This game demonstrated how a simple 3D game with everything built from blocks can become one of the most popular games of all time. Unlike most other games, “Minecraft”‘s popularity has never waned. With the addition of additional features, the gaming community continues to grow and it is now the greatest minimalist 3D game on the market in my opinion.
You don’t even have to spend a lot of money to have a “Minecraft” account. Gamers in the United States are much more involved in gambling than gamers anywhere else on the planet.
“Counter-Strike Global Offensive (CSGO) »
“CSGO” is one of my all time favorites and the greatest classic first person shooter out there. Unlike other current FPS games, it has an extremely dedicated and active player base that has never let the game down, and gameplay aside, this game still has a huge reach for its player base thanks to the magnificent weapon skin design.
For many years, “CSGO” has retained its core and continues to improve despite the simplicity of the game compared to all other modern FPS games. I think this is one of the main reasons why hardcore gamers prefer this particular game over all other FPS games currently available in the market. In terms of competition, “Counter-Strike” has always been one of the main rivals of games like “Fortnite” and “PUBG” in the United States.
There are tons of other great games like “League of Legends” which have been keeping players busy for quite a while now. The recent addition of the famous game development company Riot East “Valorant, which began to attract the attention of regular and hardcore gamers around the world. The number of players of this game is constantly increasing even in the United States. But currently, “Fortnite”, “Minecraft” and “CGSO” are the most well-known in terms of player numbers in the United States.
