One game continues its years-long domination of the Twitch charts

Riot's League of Legends is still number one with a bullet, but developers may yet appreciate checking in on these charts to see what people are watching this month.

Twitch released its latest monthly report today on the top games people like to watch on its service, and Riot's League of Legends is number one with a bullet this time around -- as it has been every month Twitch has reported on since it began serving this data up in 2013.

Developers may still appreciate checking in on these charts to see what's going on below the top rungs, which were dominated last month (as they are most months) by games like Counter-Strike: GO, Hearthstone and Dota 2.

Last month, for example, it's interesting to note that Konami's latest Metal Gear game proved more popular to watch than either Minecraft or venerable eSport StarCraft II, though Destiny grew significantly in popularity (presumably due to Bungie's mid-month release of the game's sizable Taken King expansion pack) and ultimately edged out Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

We've taken the liberty of listing the top ten games from Twitch's latest report below, but you can find the full list over on the Twitch blog.

The top ten most popular games on Twitch in September 2015 (by minutes watched)

  • League of Legends
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive 
  • Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft 
  • Dota 2 
  • Destiny 
  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain 
  • Gaming Talk Shows 
  • H1Z1 
  • StarCraft II 
  • Diablo III: Reaper of Souls
