Published On: January 5, 2022By Categories: InsightsTags: ,

Video games and entertainment continue to be an escape for audiences – both old and new. Whether diving into a fresh show, enjoying island life with friends, slinging Poké Balls, or finding the imposter among us, gaming and entertainment offers something for everyone. 

Let’s celebrate the conclusion of another year by reflecting on the topics that brought us the most joy across gaming and entertainment in 2021, curated using Spiketrap’s exclusive and AI-powered sentiment metrics. 

To get started, let’s look at the top convos from January, February, and March. 

January

For the second year, Animal Crossing brings us our top conversation of January, with a giveaway that saw an overwhelmingly positive 98/100. Goes without saying that Animal Crossers are a happy bunch, but the proof is in the sentiment! 

Animal Crossing is joined by conversations around Zendaya and John David Washington’s Malcolm & Marie on Netflix, the return of Genshin Impact’s beloved and highly anticipated Lantern Rite Festival, two Zelda topics (trick shot and wild NPCs!) and more.

These are joined by the Sonic game title announcement, the Pokémon Sinnoh remake news, CrunchyRoll’s top 6 anime shows to watch, and more.
