Ranker, known as the world’s leading publisher for fan-powered rankings on just about everything with over one billion votes, has announced its rankings of the top video games right now featuring the very best on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Millions of gamers everywhere have ranked the most popular games in 2020. These lists of the most played video games right now features the very best first-person shooters, multiplayer battle royales, MOBAs, fighting games, RPGs, and collectible card video games from several different consoles.

“Some of Ranker’s strongest voting comes from gamers engaging with our extensive library of lists for any and every console, video game, and niche genre within,” said Mike Filliben, COO of Ranker. “It’s also why our Facebook gaming focused channels “Total Nerd”, “Button Mash,” “Anime Underground” and “Super News Supes” have a combined following of almost 9 million casual, hobbyist, and hardcore gamers.”

Ranker harnesses the wisdom of the crowd and the opinions of millions of super fans to be far more relevant and predictive than the opinion of one blogger or critic.

Here’s what Ranker voters had to say: Note: These are the rankings at the time of this release and are subject to change with continued voting.

Online multiplayer shooters, like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Fortnite, and PlayerUnknown’s Battleground, are currently dominating the gaming world, thanks to esports tournaments, Twitch streamers, and YouTube gaming channels. But those may not be at the top of this list as others like Red Dead Redemption have spawned sequels that out play and out perform their original games.
