Blue Valentine, directed by Derek Cianfrance, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Drive by Daniel H. Pink was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Buried Life. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Angry Birds Seasons or Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer.
