YouTube says some games are weirdly popular by region

Oddly, many of these games are quite old — Dofus is originally from 2004, for instance, and Heroes of Newerth, a game beloved uniquely in Thailand, was released in 2010. Their recent popularity might have to do with the fact that some of these games (like Newerth) are now free to play. Others might be due to regional quirks or popular mods for games like Farming Simulator in Poland. In any case, YouTube’s poll reflects gaming viewership on YouTube, and not necessarily gameplay — so much of the regional interest may be strictly voyeuristic – Steve Dent, Engadget http://ift.tt/2dRPM3B
