Like every year, the end of December is the perfect time to take stock of the year. For the Twitch platform, it’s a chance to unveil the 10 games and 10 categories that were the most successful on Amazon’s platform. One thing is for sure, Twitch continues to grow and in 2021 totaled over 24 billion hours of viewing (up from 17 billion in 2020). Something tells us that this should continue to rise in the coming months and years!

While the rapper Dr. Dre has just arrived in GTA Online through a new update, we learn that the latest GTA to date continues to rock the counters and statistics. It is indeed the most watched game of the year on the Twitch platform with more than 2.1 billion hours viewed.

  1. Just Chatting: 3.1 billion hours viewed
  2. Grand Theft Auto V: 2.1 billion hours viewed
  3. League of Legends: 1.8 billion hours viewed
  4. Fortnite: 1 billion hours viewed

  8. Counter-Strike Global Offensive: 757 million hours viewed
  9. Apex Legends: 691 million hours viewed
  10. Dota 2: 578 million hours viewed
