Genshin Impact came out on top as the most tweeted about game in Singapore and Malaysia; according to Twitter’s internal data. The game was launched in September 2020 and has since earned over US$2 billion, despite criticisms over its gameplay, The Straits Times (ST) reported. While the game is free to play, the gameplay shows slow progress unless players buy upgrades with real money. Genshin Impact even left a Singaporean father facing a SG$20,000 credit card bill after his daughter used the card for 89 transactions for in-game purchases over six weeks. 

Meanwhile, Twitter was booming with gaming chatter last year, with over 2.4 billion tweets about gaming recorded – over 10 times more than in 2017. According to Twitter’s global gaming data in 2021, the fourth quarter in 2021 saw the most gaming chatter on the platform.
