Hancock, directed by Peter Berg, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while The Host by Stephenie Meyer was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Baseball's Golden Age. If you liked videogames you were probably playing 428: Fūsa Sareta Shibuya de or Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual.
