YouTube Rewind Details Top Five Most Viewed Video Games of This Year

This year's YouTube Rewind has gone live, and while it's a mass of fast-paced editing, it details 5 of the most viewed video games of 2019.

It’s here, that yearly YouTube Rewind video that comes out at the end of every year to celebrate any achievements and milestones that were noteworthy enough to be included. Last year’s video was a huge blow with it hitting a new record for the most disliked video in YouTube history. It currently sits at 17 million dislikes.

This year’s YouTube Rewind is somewhat less cringe, but it seems to lack character this time around and just basically becomes a weird list-athon of various categories. However, while the video shows off the most popular beauty channels, and the first Turkish creator to hit 10 million subscribers, there’s also a section for video games!

The video showcases the “most-viewed” video games starting off with ROBLOX at number 5, hitting 29.6 billion views. The game, developed by Roblox Corporation allows players to wander around player-built servers, with some allowing players to play mini-games, others role-play, and more.

Garena Free Fire comes in at number 4 with 29.9 billion views. The game is a mobile Battle Royale game from 111dots Studio. It’s available on iOS and Android.

Grand Theft Auto comes in at number 3. While YouTube Rewind doesn’t specify which game in the series it is, or if it’s a collective of all of them, the clips show Grand Theft Auto 5, so let’s just go with that. GTA 5 developed by Rockstar Games is an open-world crime game where players take control of three protagonists through a gripping story. The game also has an online mode which is hugely popular and most recently introduced a casino mode so people can waste real-world money. Apparently, the game has 36.9 billion views.

Fortnite comes in at number 2 with 60.9 billion views. The Battle Royale title from Epic Games has become incredibly popular and has also been a driving force for starting the ball rolling with cross-platform play capabilities.

Coming in with 100.2 billion views is Minecraft. The Mojang created game lets players either survive in a blocky world and build things or get access to creative mode and build with unlimited possibilities. It’s a game that’s been used to help in education, as well as bring joy to players.
