Further cementing our belief that January is officially The Month of The Stats, Google has released a list of the most searched-for things on YouTube for 2014.
As anyone who has spent five seconds in the company of an awful ten year-old will have already assumed, Minecraft was the second most popular category on the video site, a little behind 'Music', and somewhat ahead of 'Movies'.
Hyperactive Swedish gaming vlogger PewDiePie was the seventh most popular term - just look at that deeply engaging and colourful graph if you refuse to believe us.
Telling us all something we already knew, Google's content lead Gautam "Style" Ramdurai had this to say: "As gaming content takes off on YouTube, gaming is becoming not only something people do, but also something they watch."
Hilariously, Gollum also described LetsPlay videos in this funny way: "It's like watching your favourite basketball star dunk while listening to rich commentary on how he does it, but for gaming."
Indeed. If by "dunk" you mean "drunk", and by "rich commentary" you mean "Shrieking idiots pretending to be freaked out at Five Nights At Freddy's in the hope it'll make them a billionaire".

Perhaps in a bid to offset some of the damage caused by the game's bugged-up launch and "Buy! Buy! Buy!" approach to micro transactions, UbiSoft (now unofficially known as "Poo-BuySoft") has declared that next week's release of its Assassin's Creed Unity DLC - Dead Kings - will be free to everyone who bought the main game.
The add-on includes a hefty single-player campaign, continuing the hilarious adventures of playboy-turned-stabmeister Arno Le Ponce, taking him deep into the catacombs beneath olde worlde Saint Denis, wherever the hell that is.
As you would expect from anything Assassin's Creed, Dead Kings also features copious side missions, unlockable weapons, and co-operative play. Let's hope it works this time. As if!!!

Talking of Assassin's Creed, as we seem to do with alarming frequency, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting (in Hollywood) that the Assassin's Creed movie has been delayed until December 2016 (INSERT OBVIOUS JOKE ABOUT THE MOVIE BEING RELEASED ALL BUGGY AND THAT).
The Michael Fassbender-starring, Justin Kurzel "The Wurzel"-directed, video game adaptation was originally slated for release in August this year.
Though there's always the possibility that delays may have meant a major overhaul for the script, a spy report on website Filmdivider suggests that the movie will - as per the game series - be based in both the past and the future.
The plot will reportedly revolve around The Spanish Inquisition. We didn't expect that. Do you see? We are the first people to make that joke.
