X-Men: First Class, directed by Matthew Vaughn, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while The Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Division. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Cooking Mama 4: Kitchen Magic or Big Huggin'.
