Casual gaming is one of the strongest genres in mobile gaming, which in turn accounts for the majority of digital gaming revenues in the United States. The entry barriers for users wanting to try mobile gaming are low, and due to the large variety of genres and available gaming apps, there is something for every type of gamer. In the first half of 2021, action and hypercasual were the fastest-growing genres based on revenue growth. The ranking of the most downloaded iPhone gaming apps in the United States also confirms this trend, as fidget spinner gaming apps were a popular summer trend among U.S. mobile gamers.
Steaming platforms are also the most common way for viewers to experience eSports, organized video game competitions with professional individual players or teams. The United States boasts the biggest eSports player base worldwide, and one of the top professional eSports teams based on all-time winnings: Evil Geniuses. Founded in 1999, Evil Geniuses (EG) are based in Seattle, Washington, and are currently competing in MOBA titles DOTA 2, League of Legends, as well as first-person shooter Counter-Strike.
