Expect the latest gaming trends to be shaken up on YouTube!
If you think Pokemon Go is at the top of this latest gaming trends list, you are wrong! The Pokemon juggernaut is finally starting to show weakness, and that means new games for creators to follow and cover.

1. DotA 2
As the championships lose their luster, this game shall fall to the bottom of the trends. It’s not a bad thing; it’s the natural flow of gaming trends. That being said, you can still cover lots cool gameplay and unique hero combinations. Viewers tend to like extremely skilled play, or hilarious trolling.
2. FIFA 17
I know, this one caught me by surprise as well! The newest member of the FIFA franchise is here, and it’s fans could not be happier. They are so happy, in fact, that they shot this game right over League of Legends and DotA 2 on the charts.
I’m sure this is a temporary place, as it will probably be overtaken by next week, but you should get in on that sweet FIFA 17 action if you can.
3. Pokemon Go
This game, while still going strong, is starting to falter. Maybe people are getting sick of the game’s repetitive nature at higher levels, or the hardcore players are heading elsewhere until the next big update. Whatever the cause, this game is falling, and it’s falling fast.
Here’s hoping Niantic rolls out more frequent updates, because without them, this downward trend will continue. Casual players will still enjoy this game, but they’re not the ones looking up content, unless it’s for help (hint: make starter guides).
4. GTA 5
Well would you look at that! Pokemon Go has finally been unseated, and not just by one game, but by two! The first of the two to unseat the reigning champion is GTA 5 and it’s because there’s just so much to enjoy in this game.
Players and creators enjoy this game with their friends or solo, with special rules or not, and all sorts of crazy trickshots. GTA 5 is a game that has endless amounts of gameplay possibilities, and content viewers are still loving it.
We’re going to chalk this one up to the fact that MineCon just finished up, so Minecraft players and fans are going nuts on the internet. This game has been around for a very long time, and while there are tons of different thing to do, the YouTube market is pretty saturated with content from this game.
We can recommend trying to cash in on this trend, but it’s going to be very hard to break into an already established market. Our best suggestion would be to play with friends and play some sort of multiplayer mod – perhaps Pixelmon since Pokemon is a very strong trend right now.
