Fortnite is not the game of the year on YouTube, and it's a 2011 title that keeps sending

The popular game of blocks and survival with pixelated aesthetics and infinite gameplay continues to command on YouTube because it still captures the attention of younger players. Not in vain, the figures do not lie, with a record of nearly 75 million active players in December of last year, for the 3 and a half million simultaneous players that Fortnite achieved as its historic high a few months ago:

Undoubtedly interesting the analysis of YouTube guys , especially by these last words indicating that we look too much at specific phenomena such as Fortnite that succeed in our markets, without looking around or titles like Minecraft that, literally, continue to petar .

And you, do you play Minecraft or Fortnite? Have you ever uploaded a ‘gameplay’ to YouTube?
