Genshin Impact is so popular at the moment that it's been named the most talked about game on Twitter for the year of 2021. The Mihoyo title topped the list for the "most tweeted about games" category, fending off competition from Apex Legends and Final Fantasy. Over 2.4 billion tweets about gaming were posted throughout the year, with the Q4 period being the "biggest quarter for gaming conversation ever on Twitter".
The top 10 most talked-about games on Twitter in 2021 were as follows:
- Genshin Impact
- Apex Legends
- Ensemble Stars!
- Final Fantasy
- Fate/Grand Order
- Animal Crossing: New Horizons
- Knives Out
- Project Sekai
Some of these games we haven't even heard of, suggesting we may live in a bit of a bubble. Interestingly, Japan was the country tweeting about gaming the most, with the USA in second and South Korea in third. E3 2021 was the most tweeted about gaming event, and Colon was apparently the most tweeted about gaming creator. Never heard of them. More information can be found through here, but a lot of the other stats concern Esports so you're probably not too interested.
