The late 2010 success of In Third Person continued into the new year. While my blog will never reach the heights of an IGN or Kotaku, In Third Person has grown from a site with a few dozen visitors a month to a few thousand, which is really damn good for a pet project I do in my spare time. If you keep visiting, I’ll keep writing!
January’s top posts are an interesting bunch. I don’t think any of these posts appeared the last time I wrote one of these top 5 wrap-ups. If you’d like to check out the most popular posts of January, read on!
Hype for Dead Space 2 hit a fever pitch in January. It was the top In Third Person search term for most of the month, and people flocked to one of the few Dead Space posts I have. This one in particular was written almost a year ago. As much as I enjoyed the original game, I’m still too horrified to finish it. Before I play Dead Space 2, I think I’ll give the series a second chance by trying out the Dead Space iPhone game.
Of my 2010 Year in Review posts, this one was by far the most popular in the series. It doesn’t hurt that I leveraged Time Magazine’s 2010 Year in Review content to my advantage, but that’s a discussion for another day. They put together a really good list and have an interesting #1 choice, which I unfortunately didn’t play last year.
Everything I wrote about the Animus Glitch got crazy amounts of traffic. I’m surprised more people didn’t write about it, especially since so many people flocked to my site to get any information they could about why it was broken and how to fix it. If the fix isn’t out by the time you read this, it should be coming any day now.
I’d love to think that this was January’s top post because a lot of you are genuinely interested in the Movember cause and donated because of my post. Based on how this became the top post, I doubt it. Instead, this post shot to the top of the charts because a ton of people were looking for content relating to Call of Duty’s Captain Price. Why does Captain Price matter in a world where Black Ops, a Call of Duty game he’s not in, is the new hotness? I have no idea.
