    I never get the fun of playing survival arena shooter. Lots of streamers doing it, but its really boring camping till forcing zone and who shoots whom 1st.

    I couldn't agree more.

    I'd say that all ten (except maybe NieR) are odd. Do people only play antique MP games? Where's the fun in that?

    Subnautica is actually very well made single player survival game. I really enjoyed watching it on stream. Looking forward to play it as it gets released.

    That's a big reason as to why games like that become popular. They're good to stream/watch, so herd mentality kicks in and people buy them to "play" themselves. A good portion put in a couple of hours at most and rage quit.

    Not sure what all the flaming is about against PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS. I bought it and me and my buddies get a good squad going and its a blast. If its not your cup of tea cool, but many others enjoy it, I wouldn't think it made it to the top sales for no reason.

    Not so much flaming on my behalf, I occasionally enjoy games in that style. Just pointing out that Streaming trends have a big impact on game popularity and sales.

    You're right about that one.
