Most Popular Esports Games 2022

Every year, video games gain in popularity, and an increasing number of gamers enter virtual worlds. The video gaming sector currently outperforms the film and music industries in terms of revenue. However, for many people, gaming is no longer merely a pastime. 

Professional gamers are making their way into professional eSports as Individual competitors or as top professional teams that are watched all over the world, who often compete against one another for large sums of money as the Thai BettingNews88 blog post mentions.  But, out of all of these games, which one is the most popular? You’re about to find out today.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

With more than 10,000 professional players worldwide, here’s CSGO. Two teams of five players battle as Terrorists and Counter-terrorists in the classic game mode of the tactical first-person shooter. 

Unlike many other shooters, if a player is killed in action, they will not be able to rejoin the game right away. Those eliminated can only help their side in the competition’s next game round. The teams are assigned various missions in two separate game scenarios:

Bomb Defusal

The terrorist squad attempts to install a device in one of the preset zones and protect it until the timer goes off. On the other hand, the counter-terrorists mission is to eliminate the terrorist squad before they can plant their bomb or defuse the explosive before it explodes.

Hostage Rescue

On the terrorists’ side, there are multiple immobile hostages, and the counter-terrorist squad must rescue at least one of them and transport it to the hostage rescue zone. Players carrying a hostage are forced to move more slowly. 

Terrorists can bring a hostage back to its original location if a counter-terrorist is eliminated during the rescue effort. Victory is also achievable if the other squad is eliminated.

League of Legends

League of Legends is developed by Riot Games. Two teams battle against each other on a standard MOBA map in the real-time strategy game with around 180 million players worldwide. 

Each team is made up of five champions from a pool of over 150, each of which plays one of the five positions available: 

  • Top-lane
  • mid-lane 
  • ADC (Attack Damage Carry or “Ranger”)
  • Support
  • Jungler


The initial excitement around the Battle Royale shooter “Fortnite” has yet to fade. This eSports game has a basic gaming principle: 100 people battle against each other in a large area. The winner is the last person standing.

Unlike other Battle Royale games, though, Fortnite emphasizes gathering resources and constructing facilities. These can be used to obtain a tactical edge over other players or offer cover. It’s also good to know that Fortnite has over 350 million players.

Dota 2

“DOTA” stands for “Defense Of The Ancients” and is the predecessor of its older counterpart with improved graphics. It’s similar to League of Legends because they are both MOBA games. Dota 2 is a visually pleasing game with a more tactical, less mechanically driven gameplay.

The game is just as varied as its predecessor, with over 110 distinct heroes and five different player roles. Dota 2 has become the most popular eSports game among the sport’s most successful players in recent years.
