- World of Warcraft
With the top three being new releases, or in Call of Duty’s case a beta, it comes as no surprise that there are a high number of videos created and watched about them. With Until Dawn though this is also down to the nature of the game itself.
Until Dawn is a game that not only is exciting to play but can be played in a way that involves the viewers of livestreams.
