Once again, an interesting study provides valuable information on the habits of players. Specifically the favorite sports game across the world.
What might be the most popular sports game in the world? Thorny question whose site football wanted to answer by proposing a result of searches carried out on Google during the last 12 months, a very good indicator to have a start of an answer. So, rather FIFA or PES?
FIFA in the lead?
The ten games that stand out the most in Google searches are:
- FIFA 22
- ESP 22
- ESP 21
- NBA 2K22

The list clearly indicates that it is obviously football games that are popular around the world. In fact, four of the video games on the list are soccer games including the most recent version of FIFA. Other video games revolve around car racing, cricket, and basketball, which represent the two most recent NBA video games.
In the West, it is FIFA which wins hands down the title of the most popular sports game. Thus, the game of 2022 represents nearly 78.8% of all countries. The game came out on top in 141 countries. It is interesting to note how popular wrestling is in the USA since it is WWE 2K22 which stands out the most across the Atlantic.
Finally, let’s also note the importance of the NBA in China with a rather revealing result and a big victory for NBA 2K22. Once again the popularity score does not necessarily indicate the most sold game even if in the case of FIFA we know that the game achieves exceptional sales.
