Whether you seek a game for YouTube/Facebook live streaming or to learn as a professional gamer - the answer is always Dota 2. It is a close second to LoL and yet another inlet into the world of professional gaming.
Stream the above games to increase your follower count in no time. Other worthy mentions include Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Valorant, and Hearthstone.
Naturally, the ability to grow your live streaming channel is proportional to your skill and ability to play the game. Don’t try to bluff through the game (unless you have the personality to pull it off), and only live stream those games that suit your preferences. That being said, have fun streaming!
