Yahoo has released their top 10 most searched terms of 2008. Surprisingly, not only did a game make the list, but it was a free to play MMO, to boot! RuneScape, everyone's favorite FTP MMO made number five on the list, beating out Naruto, Angelina Jolie and American Idol. The list was topped out by the ever gossip-able Brittany Spears.
So how does Runescape snag top honors? One need only look at the remainder of the list to understand that a special cross-section of the populace is using Yahoo! to search the web. Half of the list reads like the front of a supermarket tabloid, with Angelina Jolie, Lohan, Alba, Miley Cyrus, and this year's number 1 search - Britney Spears. Number 2 on the list is the WWE. Of the whole list, the only two that really make sense are Barack Obama and Naruto, two characters I never thought I'd have to mention in the same sentence.
