Throughout the game, players complete different missions, which are really enjoyable to watch. However, you can also opt out of the mission and roam freely in the open world.
Its diversity is what makes GTA Vice City stand out from other games. GTA V allows you to make a variety of videos, unlike other games.

League of Legends is another best game every Nepali streamer should try in 2022. It has been free to play since 2009.
In this game, you control a character named Champion, who has a different style of play. You need to push your way into the enemy base and destroy their Nexus.
This game is similar to Dota 2. However, League of Legends tends to have a younger and bigger audience than Dota 2.
The game is available for Windows and macOS.
It is also popular with professional gamers and has an active competition scene. LoL’s immense fan base ensures streamers have a guaranteed audience.
9. Among Us
Among Us is a social deduction game developed by Innersloth. Despite being around since 2018, the game sprang to popularity in the US during the summer of 2020 thanks to Twitch streamer Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris’s live streams. It means the game is yet to get popular among Nepali streamers.
The game has a maximum of 15 players at a time. Three players are chosen as imposters, and the rest are crewmates. A constant search for the imposter makes this game even more exciting.
If the imposter kills all the crew members or sabotages the system on the map, they can win the game. Likewise, the crew members can win in two ways – if they can identify all the imposters or complete the task.
It is one of the best games every Nepali streamer should try in 2022.
10. Dread Hunger
If you like survival games with a strong climax and horror element, Dread Hunger is your alley. You are dropped into a world full of survival and betrayal while exploring the Arctic in a ship.
To get the ship moving, the eight players must collect food, fuel, and other materials from the harsh tundra.
The materials must be collected by leaving the ship. Therefore, you must watch out for wildlife and other creatures that may attack you.
In the brutal and unforgiving Canadian Arctic, you have built fires to stay warm, fend off wolves and other predators, and hunt for food to survive.
Dread Hunger is a great mixture of Among Us, Subnautica, and Sea of Thieves. It has not been exposed much among Nepali streamers either, so it could be a great way to get more eyes on your content and build up your community.
11. Nba 2K
If you love sports and shoot some balls in the ring, then NBA 2k might be worth your time. This game has top-notch graphics and visuals that every streamer and viewer would enjoy.
NBA 2K is a series of basketball video games developed by Visual Concepts and released every year since 1999. The game and its graphics get better and better every year. You feel like you are playing with actual NBA players.
Furthermore, as a Nepali streamer, you can also interact with the global audience as it has a huge fan following all over the world.
Here are the best games every Nepali streamer shall try in 2022. You can stream it for fun or you can make it your career.
Remember that not all of these games are free, so Nepali streamers may have to pay for some of them. Decide for yourself if it is worth paying the dollar or not. Always buy from authorised sites. Many scammers are out there looking for easy money.
In addition, these games are highly addictive, so you should not stream them all the time. Everything has its limits, so do games.
You should also take care of your physical and mental health. Do not become too obsessed with it.
