Here goes our list of most popular online games in 2022.
Pokemon Go has been a big hit since it was released in 2016. It is a location-based augmented reality game based on the Pokemon franchise. In it, you find, catch and train Pokemon by walking around to real life locations and catching them with your phone.

Fortnite is a free-to-play, cross-platform multiplayer game developed by Epic Games and People Can Fly. It was released for Microsoft Windows, macOS, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in July 2017. A mobile version of the game called Fortnite: Battle Royale Mobile was released as an early access title for Android devices in March 2018 and as a full release version of the same title for iOS devices in May 2019. The game has over 200 million registered players worldwide on all platforms combined, with many people playing it every day.
In the battle royale mode of Fortnite, 100 players are dropped onto one large map with a constantly shrinking safe zone around them (see map below). Players have to collect materials such as wood or metal to build defensive structures like walls or floors that protect them from other players or attacks by monsters or creatures. Players can also use these materials to build temporary items like stairs that allow them to access areas they otherwise would not be able to reach through jumping alone; however building takes time so you should be careful when deciding where and what kind of structure should be built next.
