Popularity of 'In-App Purchases' over time
This chart displays the games released over the years with the In-App Purchases feature and the percentage of total Steam releases they represent. The releases count conveys the quantity of games published on Steam each year. It usually follows the increasing amount of Steam games released.
The percentage, on the other hand, gives a better view of the trend a feature follows. It shows if, in proportion, the In-App Purchases feature is getting more or less popular. 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 In-App Purchases game feature peaked in 2022 with 351 games released. The popularity of the feature is in a range between 0.22% in 2015 and 1.1% in 2023.
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 'In-App Purchases' game reviews
On this chart, you can see the reviews for games associated with the In-App Purchases feature, both as count and as a percentage of all Steam reviews, and the value for an average game. Note that if the normalized and average lines are too small, you can deactivate the review count and % of the average lines by clicking on the legend.
The review count gives a view of the sheer amount of reviews a feature receives, but it also follows the popularity of Steam itself. That is why the normalized value as a percentage of all Steam reviews is often more interesting, as it gives you the popularity trend for In-App Purchases feature games.
A typical game associated with this feature collected on average between 21 (2010) and 5196 (2014) reviews. Keep in mind that it is the average and not the median, meaning it is heavily influenced by extreme values, like a very successful game with this feature.
The reviews per game as a percentage of the average show that games in the In-App Purchases feature received between 56% (2010) and 999% (2015) reviews compared to other features.
