Historically, fighting games and first person shooters reigned supreme in eSports, and they remain popular even now. However, battle royale games seem to be the genre on everybody’s lips, with titles like Fortnite, Apex Legends, and PlayerUnkown’s Battlegrounds featuring prominently in eSports and on Twitch.
MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) titles are also extremely popular, with League of Legends and Dota 2 making up two thirds of the current top trio of eSports titles.
