Starship Troopers: Invasion, directed by Shinji Aramaki, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while Shadow Of Night by Deborah Harkness was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Big City. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Civilization V: Gods & Kings or E.X. Troopers.
