Twitter loves to get snarky about video games, and there’s no better time to bash out 140 characters than the annual convention that was E3 2017. But what might surprise you is what game lit Twitter up the most.

Surprisingly, it wasn’t Metroid Prime. And it wasn’t a Nintendo title either, with none of the company’s games making the top three. According to an analysis of tweets worldwide that used the #E32017 hashtag – but not including chatter that done under publisher preferred hashtags, like #BE3 or #SonyE3 for instance – the most discussed game was Monster Hunter World.

Second and third on the list was Call of Duty: World War 2 and DICE’s Battlefront sequel. Bioware’s new IP, Anthem, made the list, and the God of War reboot managed to sneak into the top 10 as well.

I asked Twitter if they were able to supply Australian-specific data, but technical errors prevented that data from being collected. If something changes on that front, however, we’ll let you know.
