Ice Age: Continental Drift, directed by Steve Martino, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while Stolen Prey by John Sandford was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Jaffa Factory. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Baka and Test or Civilization V: Gods & Kings.
