We would never call you out on your love for whatever crappy thing it is that you love but, guys, you're using Google wrong
. Its recent Zeitgeist 2009 report
shows what the most popular gaming term searches of this year have been and the results are pretty surprising.
At the top spot is Ghostbusters
, which is fine by us -- it was a pretty big deal when it was announced and it sold a lot of copies, so naturally folks were interested. But, as we delve deeper into the top 10, the search terms become a bit more interesting. The next three terms -- "ufc" "saw" and "bakugan" -- really threw us for a loop. Saw
? Really? Bakugan
? What is that, a gun that uses evil Japanese spirits
for ammo? Actually, that sounds pretty cool.
Further into the list, we see that Batman: Arkham Asylum
managed to put a batarang in the fifth spot, much lower than we'd like, but we can live with that -- however, coming in at the sixth spot is Twilight
. Guys! Vampires. Do. Not. Sparkle. Seventh was FIFA 2010
, followed by Modern Warfare
in eighth. The ninth spot belonged to Transformers 2
, which we must admit has one of this year's best performances by a human male
, so that seems okay. Finally, Resident Evil 5
rounded out the list in last place.
