The popularity of video games has grown over the last several years faster than that of any other kind of entertainment. Online games, in particular, have attracted more gamers all over the world in recent years. But in this article, we will be focusing on the online games that are popular in the United States.
With the recent health crisis situation, the attraction towards online games in the U.S. and the world has increased significantly and keeps on growing. While young people and young adults are more drawn to more classic live video games, many American adults also find entertainment in playing online live games for fun as it is now legal in an increasing number of states. For example, Americans can easily play online blackjack with live dealers in NJ or in many other states.
Let’s have a look at the three most popular online games in the U.S.
The popularity of “Fortnite” in the U.S. is unquestionable even though it only gained attention a few years ago. Since then, many other games have attempted 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 US, “Fortnite” is still growing its popularity as the player count is going higher and higher day by day. The US has been the top country to play the game constantly in recent months.
“Fortnite” is regarded as one of the greatest first-person shooter games available. Released in 2017, the online video game developed by Epic Games is available in three distinct game mode versions namely “Fortnite: Save the World,” “Fortnite Battle Royale” and “Fortnite Creative.”
Developed by the Swedish video game developer Mojang Studios, “Minecraft” was made public in May 2009 and fully released in November 2011. This game has demonstrated how a simple-looking 3D game with everything built of blocks can become one of the most popular games of all time. Unlike most other games, the popularity of “Minecraft” has never faded. With additional features being added, the player community continues to grow and it is now the greatest minimalist 3D game on the market in my opinion.
You do not even have to spend a lot of money to have a “Minecraft” account. Players in the U.S. are far more involved in the game than gamers everywhere else on the planet.
“Counter-Strike Global Offensive (CSGO)”
“CSGO” is one of my all-time favorites and the greatest classical first-person shooter game available on the market. Unlike other current FPS games, it has an extremely dedicated and active player-base that has never let the game down, and aside from the gameplay, this game still has a tremendous reach to its player base through the magnificent weapon skin designing.
For many years, “CSGO” has maintained its core and continues to improve despite how simple the game is compared to all other modern FPS games. I believe this is one of the major reasons why hardcore gamers prefer this particular game over all other FPS games currently available on the market. In terms of competition, “Counter-Strike” has always been one of the primary rivals of games like “Fortnite” and “PUBG” in the U.S.
There are tons of other awesome games like “League of Legends” that have been keeping the players busy for quite a while now. The recent addition of the famous game development company Riot is “Valorant,” which started to gain the attention of regular and hardcore gamers all around the world. The player count of this game is increasing consistently even in the US. But currently, “Fortnite,” “Minecraft” and “CGSO” are the most famous ones in terms of player count in the US.
