Diablo 3 Fifth Highest Search Term in 2012 Worldwide

By
Posted on December 12, 2012 AT 01:02pm

According to the 2012 Google ZeitgeistDiablo 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 2Mass Effect 3Halo 4and 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.
