Popularity of 'Commentary available' over time
This chart shows the amount of games released over the years with the Commentary available feature and the percentage of games released on Steam they account for. The number of releases gives a sense of the amount of games published each year. It often increases, following the total amount of Steam games released.
The percentage, on the other hand, gives a better idea of the trend a feature follows. It shows if, in proportion, the Commentary available feature is getting more or less popular from a developer's perspective. The Review chart will tell us if this trend is a good thing (i.e. players interest is increasing, feature is undercrowded) or if it's the opposite.
The Commentary available feature has peaked in 2016, with 36 games released. The popularity of the feature is in a range between 0.68% in 2012 and 0.03% in 2022.
Keep in mind that the current year is not over, so the number of games released will still increase. But the percentage is usually a good estimate.
Evolution of 'Commentary available' game reviews
This chart shows the reviews for games with the Commentary available feature, either as count and as a percentage of all Steam reviews, and the average value for a game. If the graph is hard to read, you can deactivate the review count and % of the average lines by clicking on the legend.
While the review count clearly quantifies the reviews a feature receives, keep in mind that it also follows the popularity of Steam itself. The value normalized as a percentage of all Steam reviews is often more revealing, as it gives you the popularity trend for Commentary available feature games.
