As the year 2023 comes to a close, Google has revealed the top search trends of the year in various categories. The 25th Year in Search by Google lists top news, games, movies, songs, and more. This year’s lists also include trends from apps like Maps and Lens to provide insight into the types of places people are searching for and the ways they’re using these apps.

Top Trending Games
Hogwarts Legacy and Baldur’s Gate 3 took the lead as top trending game searches of the year, both globally and in the United States. Some other games that made the top 10 lists include Starfield, Diablo IV, and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Exciting Trends of 2023
The rather unique NPC trend, which saw TikTok streamers pretending to be non-playable characters from video games by repeating phrases and movements, was among the top searches. Additionally, the Instagram Notes number trend that takes advantage of the new feature introduced late last year also made the list.

Top Trending “How Often” Searches
The meme “How often do you think about the Roman Empire?” made it to the list as the top trending “how often” search, followed by other inquiries such as “How often is the World Baseball Classic?” and “How often is a blue moon?”
