The data is based on a 10% sample of overall conversation between June 12 – 14, and includes games mentioned in the EA, Bethesda, Microsoft, Sony, Ubisoft, and Nintendo conferences. Whether or not the mentions were positive or negative isn’t factored in.

The new Legend of Zelda game sits at the top of the chart with over 75,000 mentions. Battlefield 1 got around 45,000 ish – I’m eyeballing it – and God of War takes third place at the 30,000 mark.
