One of gaming’s biggest stories in recent years is how eSports, or competitive gaming, is set to become one of the world’s most far-reaching entertainment trends. But whilst we all have heard about teams of players winning huge amounts of money in front of thousands of screaming fans, few new stories have focused upon which games the eSports players are actually playing.
So to bring you up to date with the latest events, here’s a run down of the top competitive gaming titles in 2016.
It’s battle arena games like Dota 2 and League of Legends that continue to draw in millions of online gamers into the eSports realm. Fans of the free-to-play PC game Dota 2 have helped massive tournaments like The International become key fixtures on the competitive gaming map. And with the 2016 competition featuring a prize pool of $10 million, it’s clear that this has become one of the most iconic eSports titles.
The increased monetisation of competitive gaming has done much to help it become such a world-beater. But money and gaming have always been with us, and with sites like Bestway providing some of the best blackjack games online, it’s clear that the eSports world has much to learn from the massively popularly online casino scene.
Whilst Counter Strike: Global Offensive may not be quite as relaxing as a game of online blackjack, it’s yet another example of a way that a traditional gaming genre has been incredibly successfully reinvented for the eSports realm.
Although the Counter Strike series of team-based action gameplay has been with us for over a decade, it’s blossomed into becoming one of the best multiplayer titles out there that’s even established a female-only CS:GO tournament that could significantly broaden the appeal of this trailblazing game.
And much as online casino sites are constantly seeking to supplement their online blackjack games with other treats like video poker and stylish slots games, there’s been no shortage of innovation in the eSports world either.
Despite Over watch being little over one month old, the eSports franchise ESL have already announced the first Overwatch tournament that will feature a $100,000 prize pool for the players of this hit game of 2016.
Although the game features many recognisable motifs from other first-person shooters, there’s just enough development and frantic action to ensure that this could become the biggest competitive gaming hit yet!
