Esports used to be games people played in their free time but now, they’re more than just games, they’re actually important. There are entire communities centred around esports and being a player is a viable career now. Whether you’re just starting out, or have been playing these for years, you might want to know which ones made it to the “biggest of all time” list. Here are our, top 5 most popular esports games of all time!
If you’re a gamer, you won’t be surprised to see this one at the top of the most popular esports games list. Counter Strike is one of those games that anyone can learn very quickly. It’s a first person shooter game where you have 10 players, split into 2 equal teams. One team plays as “terrorists” and the other as the “anti-terrorists”.
The game has two modes, “hostage rescue” and “bomb disposal”. Depending on the team you land on, you’ll either have to save your hostage teammate, or keep them hostage, or diffuse a bomb, or set it off! The team that can complete their mission first, wins!
League of Legends
League of Legends has held up its place as one of the best real time strategy games of all time. It is a multiplayer online battle arena game where two teams play against each other. Each team has 5 players and they all start at the top of their lanes and each player has to face off the player of the opposing team at each step, evolving and spawning as you make your way through the game. Applying strategy and defence tactics, your goal is to always get the upper hand and get to the enemy’s base and destroy their Nexus. The first team to destroy their opponents base, wins!
Overwatch is one of the biggest first person shooter games of all time. This is because it has a vast variety of options when it comes to the gameplay itself. You can choose from various different modes, that alters the main goal of the game.
One of the most exciting parts of overwatch is that you’re not stuck with a basic player, everyone doesn’t do the same thing and it’s not a level playing field. You’re supposed to play in a team. Each time will have to be strategically set up, some players would be healers and some would have to be heroes. So the characters everyone chooses, matters. If you can’t create a balanced team, your chances of winning are lower. Teamwork is everything in overwatch and the intensity only heats things up even more!
Even though there has been a lot of ridicule attached to Fortnite, you can’t deny that it is one of the most popular esports games of all time. The fact that it only came out 4 years ago and has already become so huge tells us that it’s here to stay.
In Fortnite, each game consists of a 100 players and everyone lands wherever they want on the map. The goal is to arm yourself with all the essential weapons and ammo and well, survive. The last player standing, wins!
The way PUBG is set up is almost exactly like Fortnite, which isn’t surprising because both of them are battle royale games. In this one, you also have games of 100 players. Each player has to get as many weapons and health items they can and the rest of the players have to do the same thing and prepare for battle. Eventually, all the players end up facing off and the one that survives until the end, wins the game!
The great part about these games is that almost everyone can figure them out and get good at them. If you get good enough, you can even sign up for tournaments and win prizes! To keep up with all the latest news and updates about everything esports, visit koreangamedesk.com
