Numbers of actual players of each game in each state can be hard to lớn come by. The game makers themselves certainly have sầu that data, but they, for obvious reasons, hold their cards pretty cthua trận to their chest. Even if game makers bởi vì publish their active sầu user data, it’s rarely available on the state level, và it should generally be taken with a grain of salternative text. So rather than soliciting actual active user data from each game maker, we decided to take a different approach.

To determine the most popular online game in each state, we looked at five years of Google search data. We considered dozens of today’s most talked-about online console và PC games—including the following:

FIFAMinecraftHotline of DutyDOTA 2OverwatchCounter-StrikeStarcraft 2Fallout 4Heroes of the StormDiabloSmiteHaloBattlefieldWorld of TanksHearthstoneMadden NFLGears of WarDestinyNBA 2K SeriesBattlefield

Two clear winners emerged from our analysis: League of Legends & World of Warcraft. In a survey of Google Trends data, LoL & WoW performed better on a state màn chơi than competitors from most* genres and platforms.

*One exception: Minecraft simply crushes all competition in search volume & would have made our bản đồ much less interesting. We could—and perhaps should—vì an entire post on why và where Minecraft is so popular, but we chose to lớn remove it from consideration this time because it seems like a genre outlier.


Many of the games we looked at enjoy abnormally high popularity in states lượt thích Utah, Idaho, Alaska, và West Virginia—all states with lower population density.Depending on the day, Kansas teeters bachồng & forth from being an LoL state to being a WoW state. A true online battleground state.

Quichồng note about how lớn interpret these maps: Google Trends calculates the popularity of a search term as a fraction of total searches in a geographic area. Translation: while there certainly aren’t more people in Alaska searching for WoW than in California, WoW queries bởi Cosplay a higher percentage of overall search queries in Alaska. Hover over your state to lớn see how it stacks up.
