The most trending video games on YouTube right now are exactly what you’d expect!
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.

5. Pokemon Go
My, how the mighty have fallen. Consistently lacking in updates and new content, this game has fallen from unstoppable trend to a mere twinkle in many gamers’ eyes.
Maybe when the next gen comes out it’ll pick back up, but I wouldn’t count on it. Even their Halloween event didn’t dip them above fourth place.
4. Grand Theft Auto V
Yup, this game’s still on the list because there are just so many mods you can play with in GTA V! While it has dropped down on the list, there are still people all over the world who love to watch gamers play this game.
Get collaborating on this one, because solo play is for the experts.
3. League of Legends
Of course LoL is on this list. This is the game that will never, ever die, and it’s trending nature will be eternal. The problem is for new LoL video creators, though, is that it’s a hard market to break into.
Playing specific characters, creating guides for specific characters, or perhaps lore videos are the way to go with this game. Unless you are extremely skilled, people don’t want to watch the multiplayer matches.
2. Pokemon Sun & Moon
Since it, literally, came out today, I’m going to assume that’s the reason it’s trending. It didn’t break through to the top, though, so expect the hype to die down and settle out after about two weeks. You better get on it while the getting’s good, because this will be a short lived trend.
My suggestion? You should make some walkthroughs or completion lists to keep people coming back.
This game is a trend juggernaut and it shows no signs of stopping, even in the wake of the many new releases this week. The issue with the most trending games, however, is that it is very hard to break the glass ceiling, since there’s already so much content out there for this game.
Multiplayer matches of Hunger Games-style mods, giant constructions, or hanging around with your friends seem to be the way to break into this trend. While people will watch other players go solo, they won’t stick around for long unless you’ve got a hook.
