When 2018 came to an end, we asked our readers what was the best game they played on Android last year. Today we can reveal the results. And it’s a crushing winner, the chicken dinner winner for PUBG.
In general, it is difficult to choose a winner in this type of surveys. With so many games, so many different styles and genres, it can be uncomfortable to crown a single champion. This year, however, there is a clear winner.
PUBG takes the prize for the Best Game of Android 2018 with a massive 57 percent of the votes. The popular game Battle Royale was launched in February and has remained installed on players’ smartphones ever since.
Its main competitor in the Battle Royale genre, Fortnite, did not even reach the top three this year, perhaps surprisingly. Fortnite is immensely popular in consoles and PCs, but many had reservations about whether it could transfer that success to the mobile. However, when Epic Games saw 15 million downloads in its first three weeks on the market, without the Play Store, the pessimists were soon silenced.
However, downloading the game and enjoying it are two different things, and our readers have spoken. Interestingly, our survey reflected the Google Play Store awards, where PUBG Mobile took home the titles “Best game” and “Fan favorite”.
Reigns: Game of Thrones came in second, with 10 percent of the vote. Third, with 9 percent, was Asphalt 9: Legends. Three games on our list did not receive a single vote this year: Brain Marmelade, Royal Blood and Dungeon X Dungeon. You can see a list of the complete results below.
