The 8 Most Popular Games of 2020–2022

Video games have been around since the mid-1950s and have continued to evolve. The top 8 most popular games in 2020–2022 are likely to be quite different from those that dominated the market 20 years ago, so let’s take a look at what will be taking the top slots on gaming consoles, PCs, and mobile devices in the future.

In the meantime, here are 8 of the most popular video games today.


Player Unknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG)

PUBG is a realistic shooter game. The last man standing wins. As soon as 100 players parachute onto an island, they scramble to scavenge for weapons and fight to stay alive.

The graphics are decent, but they’re not flashy. A variety of settings can be adjusted to improve performance or quality. You also have a choice between first-person and third-person views. The controls are smooth, which is especially important for gamers who aren’t used to shooting games.



With its addictive gameplay and unmatched diversity, Overwatch has become one of those games that’s hard to escape. Each character within Overwatch has a unique ability set, allowing for players to create different strategies for achieving victory. If you enjoy characters that can be played multiple ways, then Overwatch is worth checking out.



Fortnite is a multiplayer third-person shooter video game developed by Epic Games and People Can Fly, who also co-developed the original Gears of War trilogy, and published by Epic. Fortnite was initially released as a co-op sandbox survival game on July 25, 2017. In February 2018, Epic announced that it would expand Fortnite into a free-to-play battle royale game under its engine in September 2018.


Rocket League

Now that everyone is working or in school, time for fun (games) is harder to come by. Rocket League makes it easier than ever to enjoy a little downtime while improving your hand-eye coordination and agility. The game comes with multiple play modes, including Soccer (football with cars), Hoops (basketball with cars), and our personal favorite, Rumble, where you battle it out in an epic one-on-one game.


Rainbow Six Siege.

Launched in 2015, Rainbow Six Siege quickly became one of Ubisoft’s best-selling games. Based on an older series of tactical shooters, Siege has received numerous updates and is expected to continue its trajectory until at least 2022. Its high level of play also makes it a popular export game, with tournaments held all over the world. The four playable operators (characters) range from close-quarters combat experts to long-range sharpshooters.



Counter-Strike Global Offensive is a team-based FPS that has been in continuous development since its release in 2012. To date, it has sold over 25 million copies and is consistently among Steam’s most-played games. As such, CSGO will surely continue to be popular through 2022. CSGO features two teams—Counter-Terrorists and Terrorists—competing to win rounds by eliminating all enemies on a map or forcing them to surrender.


Dota 2

Who can forget Dota 2, one of Valve’s best games? It’s been around for about a decade now and has a huge player base. Even though it’s not as popular as it once was (it used to be # 1 on Steam), it's still relevant in today’s gaming industry. This year, Dota is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and tonnes of new items have been added in honor of that.


Apex Legends

Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends has quickly become one of gaming’s biggest stories of 2019. Developed by a former Titanfall studio, Legends is similar to other online battle royale games such as PUBG and Fortnite in that it drops a large number of players into an arena where they must compete against one another in a variety of challenges.



The top 15 most popular video games of 2020-2022 are likely to be quite different from those that dominated the market 20 years ago. Fortnite, Overwatch, Rocket League, Player Unknown's Battlegrounds, and Rainbow Six Siege are five of the most popular games today.
