One Company Is Dominating Chinese Internet Cafes (Apparently!)

While Chinese internet cafes are supposedly on the decline, but with a 126 million active players at net cafes across the country it's easy to see that net cafes are still a major player in the gaming scene of China. Such as it is, it's always interesting to see what kind of games are being played in the country's net cafes.

Despite it being a new year and a new month, we'll be taking a look at statistics from last month published by Tencent. Tencent, the Chinese gaming giant that I think will one day take over the world, publishes and develops video games among other things. This list might be a bit biased (Tencent did publish it) so please take it with a grain of salt.

    New Journey To The West (新大话西游2) Developer: NetEase

  10. One Company Is Dominating Chinese Internet Cafes (Apparently!)

    NBA 2k Online

    Developer: 2k Games

    Publisher: Tencent

    Genre:Sports/ Basketball

Of the above games, eight out of the 10 are either developed or operated in China by Tencent. In China online games are often "operated" or published by a publisher. Foreign developed games tend to work in unison with a Chinese developer/publisher to put their games out in China, the best example would be World of Warcraft and NetEase. For example, NetEase is the operator and "distributor" of WoW in China.

    The only game on that list that I had any idea what it is was league.

      nba 2k?

        That is one of those games based on an activity that requires physical exertion right?

      There are a couple of games on this list I want to try. Blade and Soul, New Journey to the West and I wouldn't mind trying that QQ Dancing just for shits and giggles.

      I've been playing Blade and Soul on the Chinese server, it ain't bad! It controls much like most MMORPGs but has a pretty neat combo style fight system. Graphics are pretty similar to Tera.

    *scrolls down looking at pictures of games and characters he doesn't know* Sup Cloud and Gaara *keeps scrolling* ................Wait what?

      Lol I scrolled back too, anyone know the other two character's....more than likely nobody
