Here’s the torrents people searched for in 2013

With 2013 coming to a close, it’s interesting to look back on some of the events of the year, the hardware releases, the news stories: which is why KickassTorrents has collated the results of the most common torrent searches throughout the year on its main site, providing some interesting results.

Many of the top 10 are big movies from this year, like Iron Man 3, Man of Steel, World War Z (I bet a few are happy they didn’t pay for that one) and popular TV shows like Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad and Dexter, though the number one spot is an interesting one. It’s Yify, the name of a movie ripping group that has risen among the mounds of other torrent providers with its consistence and low file sizes. Often the quality of its releases (particularly the audio) isn’t as high as other uploaders, but it’s the fact that you see the name appear on torrent after torrent that has seen this group come to dominate the scene in 2013.

How many of these did you guys download in 2013?

Other interesting, less film/show specific searches include things like 2013, French and Hindi, suggesting that not only do people want contemporary content, they want it in different languages too.

The only piece of software to hit the list was Windows 8, though when you’re beaten out by the Hansel and Gretel remake, you shouldn’t be smiling.

For the full list, check out TorrentFreak’s breakdown.

KitGuru Says: It’s interesting that World War Z is so popular on the list. Perhaps that shows that zombie movies are still relatively niche and are more dominant in the technologically savvy community?

  1. yify torrents might not be up there with the high quality releases but the 720p rips are good enough for everyday playback and beat dvd quality. And they’re relatively small so they download quick.

    Oh, and they work with the PS3 easily 🙂

    And the 1080p rips are pretty good as well!

  2. I hit 2 of them “Iron Man 3” and “Man of Steel”
