Online video games have become a staple in the UK, with millions of people playing games every day. There are many different genres of online video games available, each with their own unique style and appeal. Discover the most popular online video game genres in the UK, including MMORPGs, FPS, battle royale, mobile, and strategy games.

The Popular Online Video Game Genres in the UK

In this article, we will take a look at the most popular online video game genres in the UK and what makes them so appealing to players.


The massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) genre is first on the list. MMORPG is a type of game that allows players to interact with each other in a virtual world, often with thousands of other players at the same time.

Some of the most popular MMORPGs in the UK include World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy XIV, and Guild Wars 2. All are popular because they offer players the chance to explore vast virtual worlds, complete challenging quests, and form lasting social connections with other players.


The first-person shooter (FPS) genre is hugely popular with all ages across the UK. FPS games put players in the shoes of a character who is armed with a variety of weapons and must fight against other players.

Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Halo are the most played FPS games in the UK. All are well loved because they offer fast-paced action, intense competition, and an immersive experience that puts players right in the middle of the action.


One popular genre in recent years in the UK is the strategy genre, which includes casino games. In this genre, players have to use their cognitive skills and outsmart their opponents.

Chess has become a popular strategy game in the past few years because of tv shows such as The Queen's Gambit. In addition, online casino games such as blackjack, poker, and roulette are common mainly because all are available to play on smartphones or laptops.

Online casinos have become increasingly popular in the UK in recent years, with many players choosing to play at home rather than visiting brick-and-mortar casinos. These online casinos offer a wide variety of games and many offer bonuses, promotions, and other incentives to attract and retain players.

However, picking the right online casino for you can take time. The good news is that comparison sites do all the hard work for you. These sites compare all the safest online casinos, and write unbiased reviews on each one. Moreover, on these platforms you can play demo versions of online slots in the UK and table games to practice strategies. What’s more, when you are ready to play for real money, you can claim the latest welcome bonuses to boost your bankroll when you get started.

There are also strategy games like Age of Empires, Civilization, and Europa Universalis that are popular among UK players. Military strategy games offer players the opportunity to control and manage their own virtual civilization, and work with others for a common goal.

Battle Royale

The battle royale genre has become extremely popular in recent years in the UK. In battle royale, multiple players are dropped into a large map and must fight to be the last one standing.

Fortnite is the most famous title, played by millions in the UK, especially young people. Also, PUBG and Apex Legends are other commonly played games because of the excitement of the gameplay.


The sports genre has been popular in the UK for decades. This genre simulates real-world sports and allows players to compete against each other.

By far the most popular series is FIFA which includes FIFA Football and FIFA Street, which are both available on Xbox 360. Both football games allow you to play others online or you can choose manager mode where you transfer players and build a top squad.

Mobile Games

Lastly, the mobile gaming genre has taken over gaming in the past decade. Mobile games are defined by games that can be played on smartphones and tablets.

Candy Crush Saga and Pokémon GO are the two most popular titles. Candy Crush Saga is a simple game where you need to match up the candies, and it can be downloaded for free. Pokémon GO is a pioneer in the mobile gaming space because it uses augmented reality technology to catch Pokémon.
