The percentage, on the other hand, gives a better view of the trend a genre follows. It shows if, in proportion, the Game Development genre 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, genre is undercrowded) or if it's the opposite.
