When we talk about the most popular games of 2020, there are lots of names that come to our minds. However, there are two popular games – Fortnite and Minecraft, but which has an edge.
Well, the gaming community likes both of them, and these games have made their marks on the gaming industry. Let’s discuss which one is most popular.
Cultural Impact of Fortnite
It is a free to play game developed by the epic games. This game has gained the attention of people around the world. You can find it everywhere in the world. There is no doubt that this game has gained a lot of mainstream attention. It is responsible for keeping the children away from their school work.
Longevity of Minecraft
This game released in 2009, since then the game has received many updates and changes in recent years. Still an 11 years old game, but that has not impacted the popularity of the game. Furthermore, the game has added new features, and the number of players is increasing steadily. There are many few games out there who have received support for four years. However, there is no such game who have received 11 years of support. There are still no chances of slowing down in 2020.
Revenue of Fortnite
Well, the game is indeed free to play, but it can earn a handful of income for the developers. In 2018, the game was able to make a profit of $3billion for the epic games. See! How famous is this title? The game mainly earns its revenue from cosmetics. You can play the game for free, but you can also buy some dresses for your character.
However, the Minecraft is not behind in the revenue race. Last year in 2019, over 180 million copies sold. This figure has made it the best-selling game of all time. Well, it took ten years for this game to hit that milestone. It is not usual for a game to stay in the industry for such a long time.
We have not yet seen a game that allows cross-play between three major consoles in the world. We don’t know how this game managed to bully the Sony to enable it. Xbox and Nintendo allow this, but Sony was not ready to let this happen until Fortnite. It had never occurred in the past, but somehow this game found a way to make this significant change.
Minecraft: Allows the Player to Generate Content
Whether you want to play single-player or multiplayer, it is a fantastic game. There are lots of gameplay modes that are created by the players. Whether it is a hardcore mode or a hunger-game style mode, there are lots of things that a player can do while playing. I think that is one of the big reasons that this game is still popular.
Well, the Fortnite will most probably end up being the most popular game in 2020. But the 10 years of survival and support will belong to Minecraft.
