In UK When You Believe by Leon Jackson was in the top 5 hits. In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, directed by Uwe Boll, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while The Chase by Clive Cussler was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Passport to Explore. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Coded Soul: Uketsugareshi Idea or Tetris Party.
