Neato! Google's most searched gaming terms in 2011

Google has released its 11th annual Zeitgeist lists of the most popular and fastest rising search terms. They're a lot of fun to look through, and some of the results are pretty surprising. You're going to sh*t when you see what the overall fastest rising search term for 2011 was. Hint? Tomorrow.

For the games list, the results aren't as surprising. At the top of the list you'll find "Black Ops," and "Call of Duty" directly follows. The rest of the list, aside from "Super Mario" are as you'd expect. Be sure to check out the interactive search charts for this list and others. Google lets you dig freely into their data, and it's all presented very nicely.

Special note should be taken of #7, "Battlefield 3," as it also made the big list as it was #5 in the top ten fastest rising search terms overall on the most popular search engine on Earth. Google has dedicated a page to the game and its search data. They say that BF3 searches jumped up 1,773 percent over last year, and that its search peaks actually beat out those of its competitor, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
