Guitar Hero was the most talked about game on Twitter over the course of 2011, the social networking website has revealed.
The game is the first title to appear in Twitter’s Top 10 ‘Tech Hot Topics’, popping up as the third most popular tech subject behind the ‘Mac App Store’ and ‘Sony NGP’.
Duke Nukem Forever also places at number 5, with Nintendo 3DS and Mortal Kombat dropping in at 8 and 9 respectively.
The other hottest tech topics include Mozilla Firefox, iPad, iPhone and iPod.
Guitar Hero’s popularity on Twitter is likely due to the widespread discussion back in February over Activision’s shock decision to kill off the series.
The last Guitar Hero game to release, Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock, launched back in September 2010.
The most popular game on Twitter last year was Call of Duty: Black Ops.
This year’s Call of Duty, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, doesn’t appear in the Tech Top 10 at all.
