2021 is the year of Genshin Impact


THERE were over 2 billion tweets about gaming in 2020 and that’s not suprising. Tweets about gaming are still going strong in 2021. Year on year, there has been an 18-percent increase in tweets about the genre.

This year, Twitter users are talking about eSports leagues like Call of Duty League and Valorant Champions Tour to global gaming events like E3 and Summer Game Fest. From 9th place in 2020, the Philippines has surpassed India, France and the United Kingdom and is now in 6th in eSports.

If people talked the most about Animal Crossing on Twitter in 2020, this is the year of Genshin Impact, at least the first six months, for Twitter users in the Philippines. Globally, Genshin Impact was also the most talked-about game on Twitter.

In 2021, Twitter users in the Philippines are also talking about games, like “Apax Legends,” “Ensemble Stars!,” “Final Fantasy, Fortnite,” and “Minecraft,” among others.

Kyle Jackson, also known as Mongraal, is the most tweeted-about eSports athlete in the first half of 2021. The 16-year-old Mongraal plays “Fortnite.”

Gaming PCs, laptops, accessories and peripherals did good business in 2020 and the first half of 2021.
