The 2020 popular video game genres consist of different types of games since there are different types of players. Naturally, these players have different tastes which is why they enjoy various games. Nevertheless, the gaming industry has made sure to accommodate the needs of gamers all over the world.

Online Games

Without a doubt, online games are the most popular type of video games in 2020. They all come in different subgenres but there’s no question in the rise of popularity of this type of games. The younger generation enjoys games such as Fortnite, CS: GO, and PUBG because they can test their skills online.

Other types of online games that don’t lack popularity are online casino games. There’s a variety of casino games available across plenty of casino sites. The slot games come by the boatload as well as different variants of table games.

Some of the most common table games you’ll find are roulette, baccarat, poker, and of course, blackjack. There are many roulette styles you can play online. Whether it’s French, American, or European or live you’re bound to have fun.


RPGs or role-playing games are video games that let you take the role of a certain character. Depending on the game you’ll either be given a certain character to play with or you’ll be able to create your own.

For example, in Dishonored you play as Corvo Attano and the only thing you can influence are his skills and movements. On the other hand, The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim lets you make your character. It can be either male or female and from one of many races.

FPS Games

First-person shooter games don’t focus on the whole look of the player. Instead, they focus on what’s in front of them. That’s why these games have a crosshair in the middle of the screen and two hands the player can see.

The point of these games is simple: shoot down the enemy before they shoot you down. Besides the Counter-Strike series, there are many other examples of FPS games. These include the Half-Life franchise, the Doom series, Bioshock, and more.

Strategy Games

These types of games are some of the most popular game genres of 2020 because they let you play as a commander of armies. You create your army and forge alliances to build your powerful empire. Games like the Total War series make things interesting by throwing a bit of politics in making the gameplay much more complex.

These games let you step in the shoes of conquerors like Napoleon and Alexander the Great. Additionally, strategies make you think about your next move carefully instead of mindlessly gunning down enemy after enemy.
