2021 is shaping up to be Genshin Impact’s year, as seen from the fact that it’s the most popular game on Twitter for the first half of 2021.
Being the number one most talked-about game in the world is no small feat. For Genshin Impact to do that, it would have to beat other video game titans such as Apex Legends, Fortnite, and Minecraft, and it did that soundly thus far in 2021.
Recently, Rishi Chadha (head of gaming content partnerships on Twitter Gaming) reviewed several gaming insights on Twitter and posted his findings in an official article for Twitter Gaming. Among these findings was the fact that Genshin Impact was the number one tweeted game overall for this year.
These are the most tweeted games for 2021 (from the beginning of the year to now):
- Genshin Impact
- Apex Legends
- Ensemble Stars!
- Final Fantasy
- Animal Crossing
- Knives Out
- Monster Hunter
- Fate/Grand Order
The games shown above are some of the most well-known and popular ones on the market. In some parts of the world, these games are intertwined with gaming culture, but Genshin Impact does have some advantages that make it even more popular to tweet about than its competitors.
Why so many people tweet about Genshin Impact
Genshin Impact has several ingredients for its success on Twitter. It’s a popular video game available on PC, consoles, and mobile devices while also having a solid presence in the Asian and American markets.
Some gamers might not be aware of this, but those markets make up most countries that tweet about gaming.
