Chicken dinner games or 吃鸡游戏 seem to have become a kind of genre thanks to PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS.

What originally only only referred to one, specific, title can now be seen in sentences like




The question is what specifically is this genre? Battle royal or something else?


Winner winner...

I think 吃鸡游戏 refers to games that:

  1. In first person POV

  2. Action oriented

  3. Put x players together and make them kill each other till there's only one left

Mostly just things that look like PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS.


If you survive in PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUND at last. There will be a sentence on your screen: Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! which is translated as “大吉大利,晚上吃鸡”。According to this,吃鸡 maybe a Battle royal as you have described.
