Top 30 Games Trends in July

From Designer Block Party Games to Beauty Brand Gaming Channels

— July 17, 2021 — Tech
The top July 2021 games spotlight the most innovative platforms, consoles and mobile gaming setups.With the recent Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) running as a global, interactive, worldwide broadcast for the first time, video game fans were introduced to new experiences like Blankos Block Party that look to the future of gaming, as well as nostalgic designs that reference eras gone by.

The world of gaming is being transformed, and it's appealing to new audiences, thanks to new collaborations within the fashion and beauty industries. While some beauty brands now have their own dedicated video game streaming channels and communities, fashion brands are creating their own branded virtual outfits for avatars to wear. Luxury label Burberry and Mythical Games are teaming up for a game that involves NFT collectibles that promise to capture the interests of Gen Z.
