Gather 'round gamers, we're ranking the best current multiplayer games that are out right now in 2019. How many of these games are still holding up against newcomers like Apex Legends? Help us rank the most popular multiplayer games out now that are truly the hottest titles in the gaming community.

Some games that came out years ago are still popular multiplayer games, such as League of Legends, H1Z1, and Overwatch. New takes on classic multiplayer games are here as well, as Super Smash Bros is seeing big success both commercially and with the fans. Indie titles like Overcooked 2 are also being played a lot right now, but don't play the game with friends if you don't want to hate them after.

Make sure to vote up all the current multiplayer games you think everyone should be playing right now. If there's a game you think deserves to be listed but isn’t included, feel free to add it below.
