WoW and Destiny topped media mentions in 2014

    
24

This will probably not come as a shock to you, but a lot of press was talking about World of Warcraft and Destiny last year.

ICO Media tallied up all of the article mentions of video games in 2014 and sorted them out according to categories. Destiny was near the top of the overall heap at 36,915 mentions. In the straight-up MMO category, World of Warcraft topped at 21,449 mentions, followed by Elder Scrolls Online, Final Fantasy XIV, WildStar and Guild Wars 2.

MOBA mentions were included as well, and League of Legends led the pack with 21,222 mentions. To illustrate just how much LoL dominates that part of the industry, the next game mentioned — Dota 2 — only had 11,069 mentions.

Without Destiny there would have been no news about consoles.

ArbsX You do realize store credit is simply money you have already spent at the store.

Not sure why the media has such a lover affair with Destiny.Its a mediocre,half baked game.Seems to me the media is advertising for Bungie

Estranged Think the other folks are talking about WildStar, not Destiny.

Estranged  No, but paying damn near $80 retail for an unfinished game with sub-par content when they have the extra content but would rather sell it as DLC for more money is a cash grab. And that’s exactly what bungie did with Destiny.

Destiny was mentioned on hype alone, it’s a terrible game, major cash grab. Why doesn’t Firefall get mentioned, it’s everything destiny tries to be and more.
