Ah, .io games. Years ago they used to be extremely popular, and while there are still a chunk of people playing .io games, they’re long past their prime. Since .io games are the reason I have my channel in the first place, I figured that I’d give them a bit more love before leaving them for good.
I will rank the games based on Quality first, Originality second, Popularity third.
“Quality” means how good and polished the game is and how much content it has.
“Originality” means how much the game innovates and how different it is compared to other games including those outside of .io. Generally speaking, “clone” .io games have little to no originality and won’t fare well for this list. Not that I despise the existence of clone .io games, but you get the point.
“Popularity” means how many people played and talked about the game, I will consider both peak popularity and their longevity. Generally speaking, player counts, Youtube views and the activeness of a game’s community can estimate how popular a game is.
