I don’t know. Maybe I’m not cool and trendy and whatever, but Clash of Clans? How is that still a thing in 2016? It is, though, and even if it’s not at the top – that’s Battlefield 1, obviously – it’s in third place with over 30 million views, and that’s, like, what. It’s more popular than Gears of War 4, Overwatch, and FIFA 17. I think I’m having an existential crisis now.
So anyway, here’s what’s hot in 2016, according to YouTube. Keep in mind that, for the purposes of the list, only those games that actually launched this year qualify, and the view totals were correct at publishing time.
… But, seriously, Clash of Clans?
1. Battlefield 1 (49,883,814 views)
2. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (35,947,578 views)
