It doesn’t come as a surprise that a moba title on League with massive mass appeal has won this award. People from all age groups with no prior experience can easily pick up this title. It takes advantage of being an uncomplicated version of a moba game that doesn’t brandish complex mechanics but instead focuses on fun gameplay.

The Game Awards 2021 acknowledge League of Legends’ unparallel service

Dota 2 fans will argue that their MOBA title deserved the adulation, but League of Legends has been picking up new players for years. This has been the only major esports that has managed to serve both the casual fans and hardcore players. Riot Games have also spent an incredible amount of time and money on building multiplayer as the next big thing.

The studio even ventured beyond the realm of PC Games by dabbling in the mobile ecosystem. This brand-new frontier for gaming has gained worldwide recognition as it offers the quickest way to play games in a hyper-casual manner. The massive update of Wild Rift and the title’s entry into the mobile market was also met with great success.

On top of being the most played esports title, League has also pulled off an amazing transition to the anime world. Riot Games has already built a dedicated anime series for the moba game and now in 2021, the studio has brought forward Arcane. This fantastic animated series explores the origins of two Champions from the title and what caused them to become the way they are.

The anime series is the perfect gateway for the studio to pick up new players, who have never played any moba game before. This is where League truly stands out as compared to its peers, making it worthy of being the best esports title.
