The Flowers of War, directed by Yimou Zhang, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever by Jeff Kinne was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching I Love College. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Black Rock Shooter: The Game or Dino D-Day.
