Games are always evolving in terms of popularity but not always for the reasons you might believe they do. For example, it’s not enough for a game to come out from a big developer. Sure that is going to help the title make headlines in the media but that’s helpful up to some degree. In reality, games become popular for a great number of factors that can influence their progress.

One of the factors is randomness. With games, you’re like the publisher of a book or a movie. You never really know what you’ve got until you present your final product to the masses. You might think you have something amazing, like Cyberpunk 2077, only to regret it later. Or you might expect success but then not be ready for as much as it comes, Hogwarts Legacy style!

What Is Streaming?

Another great way for games to become popular is through streamers. A new breed of famous meets gaming, the streamer spends hours each day in front of their computer, playing games of all sorts for a live audience that sits comfortably at home and watches either on YouTube, Twitch, or other platforms. If a streamer plays a game that’s unpopular, that’s about to change.

Streaming is the new backbone of the gaming industry. There are many gamers out there, by the hundreds of millions, who first watch a stream about the new game before they decide on buying it or not. It really is easier to see if you like a game or not by having another (possibly funny and weird) gamer try it for you. And doing it live on the web, with honest reactions and all.

Top 10 Youtube And Twitch Games

Streaming is not an old profession, just like gaming is. Professional gaming has been around since the days of Mario. Streaming has been made and popularized in the last decade. This means, it still is a growing industry, so to speak. So when we say these are the top ten streaming games, what we’re saying is, this is the list of today. Tomorrow is another story!

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II - It's unclear why this particular CoD boomed in the streaming world. Regardless, it is a great game!

A new threat is rising, condemning Earth to a complete collapse. It is up to you and your brothers-in-arms to restore peace to troubled humanity. For the very first time in video gaming history, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare 2 features the music of legendary composer Hans Zimmer, a musical soundtrack writer who’s been awarded Academy Awards, Grammy, Golden Globe and Tony distinctions for his incredible creations. The game resumes the events of Modern Warfare, the title that managed to win more world-famous titles than none other before.

Animal Crossing - Most gamers were first of all confused when they stumbled upon the title of this game. Why? Simply because there's no direct response to the question of what is this game about.
