League is a huge game. But if you go on other sites with video game related content. People are always like "What the hell is this?" So, how can a game that's bigger than COD and Pokemon go unnoticed by so many other gamers?

cause its not in tv commercials

although i did see dead space 3 and crysis 3 and i believe halo 4 commercials, and every kid at your school probably has an xbox with live so they play or know about those games/franchises (farcry another notable mention)

thats why kids at your school know about world of warcraft too probably, commercials

Seriously?

Simple answer: Because PC gaming isn't that popular relative to console gaming / Riot doesn't spend $450 million on marketing like Blizzard.

If it's not COWADOOTY MODRN WAR BLAK OPS 7: XTREME WARFARE 5 then it's not popular.

League seems to be REALLY popular in my school...I go around campus and the hallways and stuff and I always hear people talking about it. I barely hear about CoD and Halo or stuff like that though.

Because the only people who play league are pretty much socially awkward people who dont tell anyone about the game
