Step Up Revolution, directed by Scott Speer, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while Wicked Business by Janet Evanovich was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Farouk Omar. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk or El Chavo.
