Thailand is well known for its passion for video games. Online games have been growing exponentially over the last decade, but Thailand gamers have their own personal preferences.
In the last years there was a rebirth in co-op games. It may be related to the toxicity of some games’ community, such as Call of Duty and Fortnite (known as “rat kids”). Many players are looking for something to play with their friends and not against them.
CodeWithMike has put together a great article showing some of the best games you can play alongside with your friends.
In addition, with the evolution of technology, Thais also have other online entertainment options. Gamblers can now have access to games that used to be played only in gambling halls through providers such as Asiabet, which provides the best legal casinos. You can break away from the monotony of video games and play your favourite games such as poker or roulette and win prizes. Furthermore, there are various bonuses available, like welcome bonuses, which you can use to make a profit on your games.
While the above mentioned is very relevant, online gaming has been growing non-stop and Thailand gamers have their favorite games, which we will discuss in this article.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO)
Without a doubt, a classic amongst the classics: Valve’s shooter. This game is one of the most popular multiplayer shooting games of the last decade. It has excellent shooting and aiming mechanics, game modes of all colors, competitive matches and servers with mods. Plus as a bonus, it recently became completely free and has its own battle royale mode.
No wonder why Thais love this game so much. It is not just Thailand though, the game is a massive hit worldwide and it has proven to be timeless.
Rainbow Six Siege
Ubisoft’s multiplayer shooter is one of the most popular first-person shooter games on the internet. This is thanks to more complex gameplay mechanics than average, with a more tactical and realistic touch that has captivated millions of players around the world. Furthermore, the French company has given an example of how to develop a game as a service. It offers constant updates with new operators, maps, game modes and bug fixes that have increased the quality of the game significantly in recent years. All these developments have helped it become a title that has not stopped growing and improving.
The game has found its way amongst more mature players that are looking for a tactical experience.
DualShockers believes the game is about to leave its golden era, contradictory in Thailand the game remains as popular as ever before.
PlayerUnknown’s Battleground (PUBG)
This pioneer in the battle royale genre is about to turn five years old. It has officially changed its name to PUBG: Battlegrounds, and it is based on the Japanese movie Battle Royale from year 2000.
The game had a long run in early access until its final release. After some time, the game became free to play and it is the mobile version that drives Thais crazy. They love playing the game on their phones, even if they use devices like gamepads.
It is a great portable game to play. Fortunately, its community is quite big and healthy. We probably will keep hearing from this game in the future.
What can we say about DOTA 2 that has not been said over the years? The game is a classic and Thailand has been crazy about the game since it became popular. DOTA 2 in Thailand is as big as any sport that may come to mind.
What makes it so popular? It is a game that you can play with friends or alone, and you do not have to break the bank to succeed in the game, if you are good enough.
Occasionally, the stars have to align for games to become a massive hit, and DOTA has proven to be one of the best.
Thailand has a deep passion for gaming online, multiple or single player. Online gaming and particularly mobile gaming has been growing madly over the last decade.
The reason for this is the ease of access. Everyone has a phone nowadays, and you do not need much horsepower to move most of these games.
Fortunately, the gaming community is growing bigger as we speak and that means more games to come.
The truth is, we do not know if any future game will move these favorites to a second plane, but for now they will keep making Thailand gamers very happy for more years to come.
