I just don't get why people are so obsessed with views and likes of social media.

For example,
Animal Crossing NH 1st trailer has 2.9M views and the game sold over 22M units

FF7R 1st trailer has 15M views and sold over 5M units.

AC had record breaking numbers on Twitter and Reddit.

You are simply using an incomplete dataset to confirm your own biases.

Each social media site has different demographics.

Ultimately if analysed correctly (knowing when to extrapolate or interpolate, correlation and causation, multi variable studies, exactly defining independent variables), social media can be a neutral to strong indicator of commercial success. All companies know this and hence why they have data scientists visualise these trends.

AC, FF7R, TLOU II, GOT, Fall Guys all showed this.
