Minecraft: Story Mode, The Legend of Zelda among YouTube's Top Trending Games in June

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Watch Dogs 2, and Resident Evil 7 are just some of the games that made their way onto YouTube's list of trending games for June.


It’s undeniable June is a big month for video games considering nearly every company has something to unveil during E3. While members of the media are able to attend the show and give our impressions on what we experienced, the average Joe gamer has to resort to online coverage and video streaming sites to get their dose of the big show.

YouTube is one of those video streaming sites people turn to in order to see the latest trailers, gameplay, and commentary. Last month, a handful of games that debuted at E3 made its way to YouTube’s trending games list, although we’re surprised to see their list isn’t completely dominated by content from the show.

Taking the top spot was Minecraft: Story Mode, which released its sixth episode in early June, and starred a number of popular YouTube personalities. Rounding up the top three were Dead by Daylight and Mirror’s Edge Catalyst in second and third place, respectively.

As far as entries from E3, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard appears to have shocked fans the most as it came in at the fourth-highest trending game last month, while The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Watch Dogs 2 also made their way onto this list.
