October 2010 was another monumental month for In Third Person. Despite not being featured on the WordPress.com home page this month, traffic to In Third Person in October still surpassed the September 2010 figures by a wide margin. What I find most crazy is that In Third Person has a new most viewed post of all-time, and it didn’t need to be featured on the WordPress.com homepage to reach that milestone.
Without further ado, here are the top 5 In Third Person posts of October 2010.
Miranda of Mass Effect fame continues to be a hot topic for In Third Person readers, despite her not making my list. How could I say no to a body like that? You’ll have to read the post to find out. I made the list in the spirit of fun, so you won’t find anything overly creepy in there (except for maybe my final suggestion). If you were to make your own list (and didn’t feel ashamed to post it publicly), who would be on it?
I was a little concerned about how well this post would do. Advance Wars is a niche game and as with all niche content, the audience for it is quite small. I’m glad to see this post doing as well as it has, because Advance Wars is awesome. If you have not played this game yet, click through and let me sell you on it.
The NBA Live reboot that was NBA Elite 11 was supposed to come out this month. Oops. A glitch captured on YouTube and the massive backlash that ensued forced EA to delay the game and lose a ton of potential sales. Last I heard, NBA Elite 11 got moved from EA Canada to Tiburon and EA Canada got hit with layoffs.
Despite me writing a potential flame-bait post about the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops, my post about a 3-year old Call of Duty game is outperforming it. Most of the credit for this posts’ performance has to do with it being recommended a lot on other people’s Call of Duty WordPress posts, but I’ll gladly take all the attention I can get. As far as Call of Duty campaigns go, I think the Modern Warfare 1 campaign is my favourite.
For a post that was unread for months, it came back with a vengeance. My placement in search engine rankings has dramatically boosted this posts’ performance to the point where it’s the new #1 all-time most viewed post on In Third Person. Outside of some technical mumbo jumbo, I like to think that there are a lot of people who can relate to my experience with this first Ninja Turtles game, which was nothing short of awful, in spite of me wanting to like it with every fiber of my being.
