Battlefield 3 took fifth position in Google’s annual top ten list of fastest-rising search queries, joining the likes of Steve Jobs, Google+, the iPad 2 and Rebecca Black as the year’s hottest topics.
Battlefield 3 was the only game to make the top ten in the Google Zeitgeist 2011 report.
Despite its high-ranking position in the rising queries charts, DICE’s shooter came seventh on a list of top gaming search terms in the US – while Blacks Ops took first place, and Call of Duty, second.
