It’s Minecraft’s world, and we’re just all living in it.
Newzoo released a list of the top 20 most popular games according to views received on YouTube videos. Newzoo got the info by continuously tracking over 4 million gaming-related YouTube channels. As you can see in the chart below, Minecraft was way ahead with 2.395 billion views in January.
This list contains a lot of popular franchises, so it doesn’t have many surprises. Clash of Clans, however, at No. 9 is the only game on the list that only exists on mobile platforms, although Angry Birds at No. 8 is primarily known as a mobile brand.
Minecraft is a huge hit. Microsoft bought Mojang, the company behind the block-building game, for $2.5 billion last September. Considering its popularity, that price seems less than ridiculous.
