According to the 2012 Google Zeitgeist, Diablo III is the fifth highest search term in 2012—beaten only by “iPad 3,” “Hurricane Sandy,” “Gangnam Style,” and “Whitney Houston.”
Under video game-specific searches, Diablo III is number one, trumping Borderlands 2, Mass Effect 3, Halo 4, and Skyrim (in respective order).
Seems like Diablo III is just as much—if not more—of a global powerhouse as its predecessor. At least, enough to reach search trend levels rivaling overhyped/overpriced tablet technology, a major weather disaster, an Internet meme that spread like wildfire, and a deceased pop culture icon.
