The Games of Google's Zeitgeist

As a major player in global entertainment, videogames were sure to pop up in Google's annual Zeitgeist, an analysis of the billions of queries that web users made this year. But you may be surprised at which games were the top queries and which games saw their fortunes fall.

Rock Band enjoyed a spike in searches (see above) this September, right around the time The Beatles: Rock Band came out.

Similarly, notice how World of Warcraft's trajectory gets jagged around August (that's when this year's Blizzcon went down), then peters out towards the end of the year.

The story is too old to be commented.
