Two titans in the mainstream: AoT and Titanfall

I'm just talking a little bit about this topic just because I just recognized it. Isn't it weird how two of the most popular franchises out right now are associated with titans. Both of which humans can control titans (AoT not so much, but still) and both are innovative and fresh in their respective forms of entertainment.
The only reason I think that stories and games with titans is the titans themselves. The word titan describes something big, powerful, and usually hard to fight against, so fighting against enemies described as titans and winning gives this impression that you beat something that is usually unbeatable.
These are just a few thoughts I had about it. What do you think that this shared trait about titans in Titanfall and AoT has to do with their popularity?
