Minecraft tops YouTube's 10 biggest games

The sandbox game beats GTA, League of Legends and Call of Duty to become the most-watched game of all time on YouTube.

To celebrate what it's calling Let's Play day, online video giant YouTube on Wednesday announced the 10 biggest games of all time on the decade-old site, based on time watched.


Despite being a relative newcomer, Minecraft topped the list, beating out other household names like Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, FIFA, and The Sims.

Minecraft's dominance isn't all that surprising, given that the sandbox game has frequented YouTube popularity charts before. In 2014, Minecraft was searched on YouTube more often than Beyonce or Taylor Swift.

Check out the top 10 list below, but note that YouTube didn't provide any details on how wide the gap is between titles in terms of watchtime.

  1. Minecraft
  2. Grand Theft Auto (series)
  3. League of Legends
  4. Call of Duty (series)
  5. FIFA (series)
  6. Garry's Mod
  7. The Sims (series)
  8. Five Nights at Freddy's (series)
  9. Puzzle & Dragons
  10. Dota 2

YouTube also announced today that Let's Play videos, like the ones PewDiePie releases for his 36.5 million subscribers, have together generated "billions of hours of watchtime" to date.
