League of Legends and Dota 2 lead Twitch Top 20 for September

MOBAs continue to dominate viewer interest on Twitch, with Destiny finishing outside the Top 5 and Super Smash Bros. for 3DS making a surprising debut.


Twitch has released its top viewed games for September 2014. As one might expect, MOBAs rule the day, with League of Legends taking the top spot, followed by Dota 2. Along with the usual MOBA representation comes some new entries from some of the anticipated fall releases.

Bungie's Destiny debuts at #6, while The Sims 4 rounded out the Top 10. Of note is Super Smash Bros for 3DS debuting at #18, given that Nintendo's handheld brawler hasn't even released in the United States yet. But given the interest in finding out whether the rumored leaks were real, the cumulative viewings were enough to carry it into the Top 20.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
