Genshin Impact

We’re just over halfway into 2022, and Twitter users around the world have already tweeted about gaming 1.5 billion times.

Twitter says this is a record for half a year, and a 36 percent increase year-over-year from 2021. It notes that events like the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, PlayStation State of Play and Summer Game Fest, as well as big releases like Elden Ring, helped drive the conversation. It will be interesting to see how much tweets may increase this time next year, given that the once-major E3 gaming event is set to make a full, overhauled return alongside Summer Game Fest.

  4. Final Fantasy
  5. Fortnite
