Interesting analysis. I get a feeling a lot of these common topics associated with popular trailers come from the "pedigree" topic, where they have elements from previously popular games and/or media and trigger the association "oh man, I loved *blank*. I really hope this new game feels like it".
Some of these topics might be everlasting (like eye candy, or big monsters), but others I feel would fluctuate depending what trended previously. Like how for a time "car tuning" was very popular alongside the earlier Fast and Furious movies.
Hype responsibly, kids.
