    I run a fairly popular gaming news site and im having a hard time to find popular trending topics for gaming in general.

    1 out of say 20 articles gets a lot of hits from google news, im purely basing my stuff from popular games.

    Is there a tool i can use that looks at facebook/twitter/reddit etc.. and says whats new and hot (keywords)

    Google trends isn't working to well for me either.

    well i tell u what i do every week, i take 2 hours for every niche, go to first pages on that niche on google, and see what is the new updates on them. especially forums, i read for a few, to see what the common questions these days + i am a member of the best page facebook on that niche ( the one that always updating )
    it would be helpful to find such a tool
    however i prefer my way cause it give u better perspective of what is going on

    There is a service called Recorded Future that spots early trends in a big way.

    try Google trends and also home pages of popular websites like ign , gamefly etc . That should give you a idea about what people are talking. You could also try youtube's gaming channel.

    There are new consoles coming out soon (xbox1,ps4) that is going to negatively effect tower PC gaming, you could ramble on that , and , speculate on new titles that could come out? "when ,if , will there be a GTA VI....and so on.

    Exploit the upcoming xmas commercialism season : "top games to ask Santa for this year"

    "the future of mobile gaming" draw parallels to the new kurio child safe tablets , and the Game boy , and , Game gear of yesteryear

    These are a few ideas you could use if , your stumped for new stuff to write.

    I know your looking for a tool to help you know what your customers are going to want before they do , but , i don't think that can be done , realistically. Predictive analytic is essentially a guessing game. Some guesses are more educated than others , but , no one is fully certain of what the future holds.

    Try some of the popular sites and search engines to know about the latest trending stuffs among the people. Gaming platforms such as Gamefly or YouTube's gaming channel can also give you insights on the latest updates.
