Minecraft is YouTube’s most popular game of 2019 with over 100 billion views on the video sharing platform.
YouTube revealed the most-viewed videos in several categories as part of its YouTube Rewind recap of the year, which actually covers January 1 to November 1.
Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg, who reached 100 million YouTube subscribers in August, helped propel Minecraft to the top of the game rankings.
His first ever YouTube upload was a Minecraft video and he recently returned to the series, which celebrated its tenth anniversary in May.
“[Minecraft’s] resurgence paralleled the decision by YouTube’s most subscribed creator, PewDiePie, to re-engage with the game in late June,” YouTube said.
“The month after PewDiePie posted ‘Minecraft Part 1’ — his first Minecraft video in years — uploads of videos related to the game reached an all-time high.”

Minecraft (100.2 billion views)
Fortnite (60.9 billion views)
Grand Theft Auto (36.9 billion views)
