Once again, an interesting study provides valuable information about the habits of players. Specifically the favorite sports game in the whole world.
What could be the most popular sports game in the world? Thorny question to which the futbin site wanted to answer by offering a result of searches made on Google during the last 12 months, a very good indicator to have a beginning of an answer. So, rather FIFA or PES?
FIFA in charge?
The ten games that stand out the most in Google searches are:
- FIFA 22
- ESP 22
- ESP 21
- NBA 2K22
- eFootball 22
- rocket league
- Cricket 22
- FIFA 23
- WWE 2k22
The list clearly indicates that it is obviously football games that are popular all over the world. In fact, four of the video games on the list are soccer games, including the most recent version of FIFA. Other video games revolve around car racing, cricket and basketball, which represent the two most recent video games of the NBA.
In the West, it is FIFA that wins without a doubt the title of the most popular sports game. Thus, the 2022 game represents almost 78.8% of all countries. The game was the best in 141 countries. It’s interesting to note how popular wrestling is in the US, with WWE 2K22 being the highlight on the other side of the Atlantic.
Finally, the importance of the NBA in China should also be noted with a rather telling result and a big win for NBA 2K22. Again the popularity score does not necessarily indicate the best selling game although in the case of FIFA we know that the game achieves exceptional sales.
