Minecraft Is The Most Watched Game On YouTube

The stats are in. YouTube videos of Minecraft [official site] – Notch’s unshakeable elder god of PC gaming – have been watched more times than any other video game during the website’s 10 year reign.

But how many of those videos are about constructing giant block wangs? YouTube may not say, but the investigative journalist in me says “many.” Speaking with the Washington Post, YouTube’s global head of gaming content Ryan Wyatt said there are over 42 million Minecraft videos on the site, with “Minecraft” being the second most searched-for term overall.

Which surprises me, when you consider the spectator culture around games like League of Legends and DotA – which hit the Number 3 and 10 spot, respectively. In fact, Minecraft’s success on the site may actually say more about how YouTube has failed to nail the eSport market.

Anyhow, here are the top 10 games on YouTube, according to YouTube:

1. Minecraft
2. Grand Theft Auto
3. League of Legends
4. Call of Duty
5. FIFA
6. Garry’s Mod
7. The Sims
8. Five Nights at Freddy’s
9. Puzzles & Dragon
10. Dota 2
