Posted on December 15, 2011 AT 04:15pm

THE BUZZ: Activision’s Call of Duty series seems to be popular everywhere you go—even Google searches.

Google today released a wide array of stats on the top search terms for 2011, and two of those categories were directed at game-related topics. So, here are those two lists: the top searched for video games, and the top searches for online games.

1. Black Ops
2. Call of Duty
3. Halo Reach
4. Super Mario
5. Mortal Kombat
6. Skyrim
7. Battlefield 3
8. Dragon Age 2
9. Diablo 3
10. Mass Effect 3

Online Games

EGM’s TAKE: Mortal Kombat above Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Diablo 3, and Mass Effect 3? That’s quite a surprising entry. The top ten searches for online games list is then quite humorous to me—what in the world are ‘Armor games’?

Of course, I could probably answer that by, you know, searching for it.
