4. Fortnite Battle Royale

 

Developed by- Epic Games

Launch year- 2017

 

Fortnite Battle Royale has been on players’ radars since 2017, but it exploded in popularity in 2018. And with that, it’s still leading in terms of numbers and dramatic effects, but popularity isn’t as important because they’ve only been targeting boys, whereas PUBG has targeted all genders.

The game has more features, equipment, and game stages with a much larger number of players, but the popularity factored in. Hence, it finds its place in the top 10 online games in the world.

11. GTA Online

 

Developer: Rockstar North
Platform(s): PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X

 

Even in these advanced years for GTA Online, let's not forget this game launched on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC back in 2013. Almost a decade later, and the world of San Andreas, and the possibilities for stories to be told in its streets, is still astonishing. Rockstar created a wildly malleable online experience in GTA Online, one which will allow your imagination to run wild. Do you fancy logging on and doing some gun running, set up a little weed empire, or get all heisty with a crew of friends to take down a bank or a casino? You can be whatever you like in GTA Online, although admittedly whatever you like is going to have to involve some level of crime, but come on, the clue is in the title.

12. Halo Infinite

 

Developer: 343 Industries
Platform(s): Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC

 

If you're going to get one thing categorically correct in a Halo game, it's got to be the feel of combat – the unique formula and dynamics that makes Halo… Halo. Thankfully, even with a troubled launch, and a constantly developing and improving raft of content in the pipeline, developer 343 Industries has had that unique combat feel just right from day one. Whether you're picking from the unfettered chaos of a Big Team Battle, or the tightly contested objective modes in ranked Arena play, there's something undeniably fun about climbing online in Halo Infinite. Given its strong foundations, this is one free-to-play experience that's great now, and only going to get better over time.

13. Diablo 3

 

Developer: Blizzard
Platform(s): PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch

 

Even with Blizzard's Diablo 4 looming on the horizon, the third entry in this classic action-RPG series is still one of the best online games out there. The premise is the stuff of fantasy gaming legend, hack-and-slash top down adventuring, sending the forces of evil packing with a variety of playable classes. Where Diablo 3 becomes essential is in its rich RPG detail, and the almost compulsive desire it'll drag out of you and your friends to continue leveling and collecting new loot. Diablo 3 may be over a decade old, but there's still magic to be found in its formula.

14. League of Legends

 

Developer: Riot Games
Platform(s): PC

 

There are a few games on this list that could be described as the definitive article– the one example of a genre that stands tall – and nowhere is that truer than with League of Legends. It's the archetype MOBA, a world beating esport, and the inspiration for a whole universe of spin-offs. Pick your champion, pick your lane, pick your poison, and have at it – you and your team need to find a way to push through the opposition team to their base. Sounds simple enough, but 13 years of strategy development, of upgrades and patches, mean that while League of Legends is as approachable as it's ever been, the depth of high level competitive play is remarkable.

15. Valheim

 

Developer: Iron Gate Studio
Platform(s): PC

 

Survival games are ten a penny, you can't move in the Steam store without treading on another base crafting, resource gathering title. But Valheim stands out from the pack; it nails the basics of the genre and iterated upon those ideas smartly, and the resulting early access experience is truly remarkable. Core survival mechanics are all present and account for: chopping trees, building your base, getting some food,  and killing nasties. But developer Iron Gate Studios has excelled by making it all simple to grasp, with layers of depth waiting underneath. Beyond the objective of simple survival, Valheim includes boss battles, making co-operative online play a key focus; get all your vikings as beefy as possible, ready to take on these epic fights.

16. Valorant

 

Developer: Riot Games
Platform(s): PC

 

League of Legends developer Riot Games has applied its vibrant and exciting character design ethos towards this punishingly precise first-person shooter. The result is a tightly tactical team-based game with a miniscule time to kill, a defined art-style, and heroes with a whole lot of character. Getting involved with competitive games of Valorant is exhilarating, and you'll need  teamwork and communication to be on point to survive them – rounds of Valorant can often be won or lost by a degree of milliseconds and millimeters. It isn't the most approachable FPS on this list, but if you can get a handle on Valorant you'll find that there's nothing quite like it.

17. No Man's Sky

 

Developer: Hello Games
Platform(s): PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X

 

One of the all time great video game fairy tales, a game with a troubled launch pulling itself up by the bootstraps and becoming better than ever thought possible. Update after update have made No Man's Sky a constantly outstanding and surprising title. Space exploration and survival with friends in this beautiful sci-fi illustration of a game now exists in a much more traditional and satisfying manner, making it easier than ever before to party up, build a home base, and travel the universe together. You never know what you'll find out there in the procedurally-generated stars of No Man's Sky, but sharing discoveries with friends makes the experience truly unforgettable.

18. Rainbow Six: Siege

 

Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Platform(s): PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X

 

Rainbow Six Siege is not for the faint of heart, it's tense and it's precise, popping your head around the wrong corner will end your match in no time at all, so you have to be careful and you have to be sure. The defending team gets one minute to set up shop, mount their defenses, and plan their tactics until the attackers are unleashed to put paid to all that. Ubisoft has done fantastic work to transform Rainbow Six into a suspenseful, round-based PvP shooter and the experience that exists today is a truly multiplayer behemoth. Few other games are able to match the level of nervousness and tension that Rainbow Six Siege can generate.

19. Monster Hunter World

 

Developer: Capcom
Platform(s): PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X

 

Capcom is hitting a rich successful streak at the moment, and nowhere is this more evident than in the glorious success of Monster Hunter World, a cooperative action RPG with a strong focus on obtaining better and better gear to take on bigger and badder beasts. There is a primal thrill to grouping up with your friends, following the tracks of a vicious and dangerous monster, and then outwitting it in a session of truly bombastic combat. The satisfaction of taking down a monstrous enemy is only surpassed by the satisfaction of the new loot you will have acquired in order to allow you to take on the next monster, together.

20. Overcooked 2

 

Developer: Team17
Platform(s): PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch

 

To a pair of sweet innocent eyes, it looks like Team17 created a friendly co-op cooking adventure, but be in no doubt, Overcooked 2 is a brutal test of even the closest friendship and family groups. What happens in the kitchen, stays in the kitchen. You will be screamed at, and you will scream at your nearest and dearest – probably about the lack of chopped onions. The box may claim that Overcooked 2 is a co-op game, working together with your other chefs across a variety of restaurants, but you mark my words: a head chef will emerge. Someone will do more shouting than most, and that kind of thing doesn't get forgotten quickly in social circles.

21. Rocket League

 

Developer: Psyonix
Platform(s): PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch

 

The gulf between a fresh player to Rocket League, and a grizzled veteran is at first glance insurmountable. One will be shifting their car back and forth to get a touch like Austin Powers trapped in a corridor, the other will be gliding gracefully through the air, the ball glancing off the bumper, arcing majestically into the goal. But that difference soon diminishes, a game or two in and the basics will be down, you'll have your camera of choice, and get a grip on those angles. It might take a while to learn to fly. For a game with turbo boosted cars playing football, communication with your teammates is crucial, and that communication boils down to two essential lines. In order to win a game of Rocket League, someone always has to call out "I'll stay back!" or "Get in the middle!" beyond that, you can do what you like.

22. Dead By Daylight

 

Developer: Behaviour Interactive
Platform(s): PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android

 

Four versus one – that seems unfair, doesn't it? Until we consider that the one is a ruthless killer, working at the behest of a malevolent entity of pure evil, and the four are a bunch of scared victims with some iffy generator repair skills. Dead by Daylight is the asymmetrical multiplayer game that stood the test of time. It's easy to get hooked, whether you're stalking the grounds as a famous horror icon, or teaming up with other survivors to fix the generators in a bid to escape. An evergreen title on the twitch homepage, Dead by Daylight is as exciting to watch as it is to play, and is still growing, both original characters and tie-ins to famous horror franchises are regularly added to keep things fresh.

23. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

 

Developer: Nintendo 
Platform(s): Nintendo Switch

 

Long before the Metaverse became a trademarked term, Nintendo was smashing its brands together to fight it out. From a roster of 12 exclusive Nintendo characters in the 1999 original to an outrageous 89 playable characters in 2018's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from across the gaming multiverse, this is a truly unbeatable fighter. Nintendo has given us a truly definitive edition of Smash Bros. here – music, stages, costumes, fighters, and modes are in abundance. As well as being a pure party game, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has also become a popular competitive fighting game – showing that there's depth hiding behind that glossy surface. No matter how you look at it, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is one of the best fighting games of all-time.
