Positivity in Perspective: Top Conversations in Gaming & Entertainment from Q2 2021

Published On: January 10, 2022By Categories: InsightsTags: ,

Based on observed online chatter, Spring 2021 was a time for anticipation and excitement. Many of our top positive conversations this period revolved around teasers and trailers for soon-to-release shows and games, giveaways, reveals and unboxings, and more. 

In this second installment of our Positivity in Perspective series, we are taking a look back at the conversations that sparked the most joy between April, May, and June. Let’s jump into it! 

April

Of the highest engagement conversations in April, the top three in sentiment were all conversations around teasers/trailers for upcoming entertainment. Anticipation, as it relates to excitement, is where we gain the most dopamine in our brains. Given that, as well as the fanfare around these particular titles, we’re not surprised by the 90+ sentiment levels for each. 

These teasers are joined by Apex Legends pros looking to prove themselves in areas, conversations around first looks and unboxings for 5G products (more “in with the new” anticipation!) and the Marvel-released hour-long dance video featuring Zemo from The Falcon & Winter Soldier. As one YouTube commenter put it, “Thank you for giving the fans what they wanted.” Here’s the link to the video, because we feel everyone deserves to experience it, at least once.

6 5G Samsung Galaxy M4255G First Look 87
7 The Falcon & The Winter Solider Zemo’s Hour-Long Dancing Video 86

May

Anticipation was still a theme this month, though it was particularly varied.  The list included excitement around giveaways, controller reveals, and game announcements, as well as the announcement of a partnership between Sony and Discord, which will bring Discord chat directly into PlayStation consoles in 2022. 

Aside from reveals and announcements, we also rejoiced over favored celebrity award wins. Notably, Elisabeth Olsen’s well-deserved win for Best Performance in Wandavision at the MTV Movie Awards also won top positive conversation for the month! 

Top Positive Conversations: May 2021

2 Venom: Let There Be Carnage Giveaway: GameStop Exclusive Funko 91
3 Sony Playstation New Partnership With Discord 91
4 Billboard Music Awards Drake Wins Artist of the Decade Award 90
5 The Sims 4 Dream Home Decorator Game Pack Announced 83
6 Playstation 5 DualSense Controllers Reveal 82
7 Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker Launch Announcement 77

June

Coming in as the top positive conversation for June 2021 was the first teaser of the Uzumaki anime on Adult Swim. Notably, this is the only conversation on our list for the entire year to hit a 99/100 sentiment. While scores of 95 or greater may be seen with more niche conversations, it is quite rare for high volume conversations to be so overwhelmingly positive.

Conversation about the anime preview is followed by another highly anticipated preview, this time for Halo: Infinite’s multiplayer. This month’s top convos also include news about casting for John Wick 4, the overview for Nintendo’s Game Builder Garage, and the ever-popular Steam Summer Sale! See the full list below.
