Fortnite: The most popular video game among celebrities

When celebrities from all walks of life come home and want to enjoy their free time, many decide to turn on their console or computer, put on their headphones and spend some time in virtual entertainment.

The ability to play online means that many anonymous users can match up with the leading team’s footballer, the singer of the moment or the actor from the fashion series. In the world of sport they are more common and known, but it is not something exclusive to them.

In some of these, the user can find, with a bit of luck, some ‘celebrity’:

League of Legends

A modern classic. Few gamers are not familiar with the ‘battler royale’ par excellence, which marked a before and after in the eSports industry. With it, many of the current youtubers dedicated to video games became famous. Some have even taken this game as a basis for creating eSports teams.


The most popular of the moment. A Premier League player can still appear as an actor like Mark Hamill, Luke Skywalker himself in the Star Wars saga. The Epic Games game has millions of users worldwide and its ease of use, colorfulness and playability have made it a must-have.

Counter Strike

By age, the oldest. The ultimate shooting and action game, with plenty of rooms and servers to play with friends or strangers. It is also one of the most popular games on the big screen, although the movies have nothing to do with its content.

Animal Crossing

It may be the most visually childlike and unrealistic, but its simple premise (a kind of ‘The Sims’, but with animals doing human activities) has hooked many. You’ve even seen business there, as the NBA entrance shows. Elijah Wood, the Frodo Baggins of ‘The Lord of the Rings’, is the latest to get hooked.


Who hasn’t played a game at FIFA with friends? Celebrities are also caught up in the EA Sports franchise, starting with the players themselves. From the Kun Aguero, whose live broadcasts are already being followed by hundreds of thousands of people, to the radically different Kiko Rivera.

iRacing, F1 2019, Gran Turismo…

Just like football games, car games serve as an escape route and mental training for professional drivers, but not only. Without racing, Formula 1 has organized a virtual championship in which, in addition to Charles Leclerc, Lando Norris and company, other sportsmen and women participate, such as Thibaut Courtois, goalkeeper of Real Madrid, among others.
