We Happy Few generated most interest at E3, says internet research firm ListenFirst

Compulsion Games' We Happy Few, shown on stage at Xbox's conference, was the most popular game at E3.

That's according to internet tracking company ListenFirst, which – as reported by GamesBeat – worked out the number of organic searches on Wikipedia for all titles at E3. The thinking here is that the more searches; the higher the level of popularity.

The data (below) was collected between June 12th and June 13th. The number after each title represents its search index.

We Happy Few was the most-searched for title, even coming in ahead of Sony's new God of War game that opened PlayStation's conference.

In third place is David Cage's new title, Detroit, and in fourth position, EA's new Mass Effect title, Andromeda.

1. We Happy Few, 15,191
2. God of War, 15,097
3. Detroit: Become Human, 10,498
4. Mass Effect Andromeda, 9,519
5. The Last Guardian, 9,585
6. Battlefield 1, 9,184
7. For Honor, 8,831
8. Sea of Thieves, 8,584
9. Horizon: Zero Dawn, 8,008
10. Scalebound, 7,961

ListenFirst didn't just look into the popularity of E3 games, but it also looked at level of attention each conference received. The methodology for this is different: this is comprised of metrics from Facebook, Google Plus, Tumblr, Wikipedia and Twitter. It also runs between June 12th and June 13th.

Xbox came in first place here, claiming 35.81 per cent of total attention. In second place it was Ubisoft with 23.23 per cent, while in PlayStation.
