Ninja began his journey as a streamer while playing Halo 3 professionally. Soon after, he started playing Fortnite and hasn’t looked back ever since. From collaborating with the likes of Drake and Travis Scott to being a host in several Fortnite events, the streamer has achieved it all.

Even though Epic Games’ Battle Royale title has helped Blevins reach new heights, it will be an overstatement that Fortnite is the only game he adores. In fact, he quit playing the game in 2020 and is still one of the fastest-growing streamers on Twitch.

Ninja is a big fan of role-playing video game franchises like Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts

Ninja has always been known for playing Battle Royale and Multiplayer games. However, his top 10 list comprises 6 role-playing games. While Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts are colossal hits, not many expected the streamer to be a fan of League of Legaia and League of Dragoon.

League of Legaia and League of Dragoon released in 1998 and 1999, respectively. Both the titles were PlayStation exclusives and might have been Ninja’s first step towards gaming. Veterans who’ve played these games for countless hours love them for their combat, storyline, and fast-paced action. To this day, they’ve been waiting for an HD remake of their favorite childhood games.

Other games on the list include multiplayer titles and Battle Royales such as H1Z1, Fortnite, Halo 1, and Halo 2. Considering Blevins’ experience as a Halo 3 professional player, it comes as no surprise that he equally likes the first two games in the franchise. Moreover, before Fortnite became the biggest game in the world, Ninja used to play H1Z1, and owes his impeccable skills and game sense to it.

Last, but not least, there’s Fortnite, which many fans wanted to be Ninja’s all-time favorite. However, it is self-evident that he prioritized his happiness over money and success while ranking these games.
