Twitch is a very popular platform that lets you share your gameplay with others and build a following by appearing on a regular schedule and entertaining your followers.
The number of people who stream on Twitch isn’t going to slow down in the next few years. People who stream on Twitch have a better chance of succeeding if they play a game that already has a lot of people watching.
On Twitch, there are a lot of great games you can play now.
1. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege
It’s a first-person shooter game that focuses on close-quarters, goal-based combat. Rainbow Six: Siege has been very popular since it came out.
The competitive nature of the game and the teamwork-oriented gameplay make it fun for people to watch, especially if you’re a lot of fun to watch when you play.
People who play Rainbow Six are very competitive, which makes them feel like they’re better than everyone else. To be a good streamer of Siege, you’ll need to be good at the game and have a lot of fun.
A stat from Statista says that as of February 2022, Rainbow Six: Siege has had more than 4.22 billion views on Twitch.
On the live-streaming platform, Overwatch has had more than 7.94 billion views so far. It doesn’t take long to see why. An FPS game where you work with other people to fight together is called Overwatch. You can choose from a wide range of heroes, each with their own unique abilities and play styles, which make up different teams.
If you like games like MOBAs and first-person shooters, you’re going to like Overwatch, because it’s both. It has a very loyal group of people who can help you get started on Twitch if you’re good at being funny. If you want to be good at Overwatch, you might need to practice a lot. When you get better over time, you can be sure that your audience will enjoy watching you do that.
3. World of Warcraft
Even though World of Warcraft has been around for less than two decades, it still has a lot of viewers on Twitch. There have been more than 11.02 billion all-time viewers. For the sake of your Twitch career, why not let yourself be sucked back into WoW one more time?
It’s likely that most people who watch WoW will want to see some content from the middle to endgame. A streamer who hasn’t played World of Warcraft before might have an advantage over someone who has played the game before. But in any case, there are still a lot of people watching this game.
A lot of people still play Minecraft even though it’s been around for a long time. Because even if you haven’t played Minecraft before, it’s a great way to get people to watch your videos.
To stand out in Minecraft, you’ll need to do something unique. It doesn’t matter what kind of Minecraft game you’re playing, whether it’s Survival or Creative, think about things that can make your audience feel like they’re part of and interested in your Minecraft gameplay.
It’s not as old as some of the other best games to stream on Twitch, but Hearthstone is a digital strategy card game based on the Warcraft series. It has more than 13.46 billion all-time views on Twitch.
It’s a good game for people who used to play Yu-Gi-Oh, Magic: The Gathering, or other card games as well as World of Warcraft. It will likely be a game that you enjoy and that you get a lot of viewers from because it has been popular for a long time.
6. Dota 2
Dota 2 is one of the most well-known and oldest RTS MOBA games. If you have the right team, it can be a lot of fun. Dota 2 is very easy to run on most PCs because it has good optimization. If you’re interested in the genre or just need a game your PC can run while you stream, Dota 2 could be the game for you.
On Twitch, Dota 2 has had more than 19.09 billion all-time views. This shows that there is a lot of interest in the game that isn’t going to die any time soon. If you haven’t played games like this before, you might want to spend some time practicing before you start playing this as your main game. People will expect you to have at least a basic level of skill to keep them interested in you.
7. Dead by Daylight
Smaller, niche game with a lot of fans. Suspense helps people remember because they want to know how the round ends. Will the streamer be killed in a gruesome way?
You can also play the game with your viewers, as long as you stay the killer and keep looking for them (otherwise, they are able to track you down). This will make other people wonder if you will be able to find their friends. If you have a lot of people who want to play with you, you can use a random generator or only let them play as subs.
8. Old School Runescape
Runescape was first released in 2001 and quickly became a huge hit with gamers. OSRS (Old School Runescape) is what many original players like to play and watch because it brings back good memories.
There are a lot of different fields and skills you can learn to make your own niche and keep your viewers interested. Player-owned homes and guilds also give you the chance to hang out with your viewers.
The people who watch OSRS are mostly older fans who are now between the ages of 25 and 35. Many of them work and have a little extra money they can spend on donations and subs. It’s also very common for people in the community to give each other in-game items and money.
9. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was the first Zelda game to be released in 3D. It was released in 1998 and has a lot of nostalgia around it. Visit any “Song of Storms” cover on YouTube to see how much people still love the game and story decades after it came out.
Zelda games, in general, make it easy to play a game while still being able to talk to your friends. Like OSRS, these viewers are likely to be between the ages of 25 and 35, like them. A lot of people are going to be there to “re-experience” the game through someone else’s eyes.
