It’s hard to imagine, but Riot Games’ League of Legends remains the most-watched game on Twitch, despite being 11 years old. While not the first MOBA released, LoL has withstood all competition. As many AAA developers have tried and failed at releasing their own MOBA games.
League of Legends has also come a long way with many updates and patches over the years. Hence, keeping the game alive and fresh for both veterans and new players alike.
Just like League of Legends, Minecraft is also 11 years old and has been kept alive. Provided with tons of updates over the years that bring in new players while bringing back old ones. It’s also pretty much the only game of its kind – while other survival games exist, like Rust or DayZ. None offer the creative possibilities of Minecraft or the incredible modding community behind it.
