The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, directed by David Fincher, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while Devil'S Gate by Clive Cussler and Graham Brown was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Layover. If you liked videogames you were probably playing CardMon Hero or Crysis 2.
