2D Fighter's popularity amongst developers
This chart displays the games released over the years with the 2D Fighter tag and the percentage of total Steam releases they represent. 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 tag follows. It shows if, in proportion, the 2D Fighter tag is getting more or less popular from a developer's perspective. The Review chart can let us know if this trend is a positive thing (i.e. players interest for the tag is growing) or a negative one (the tag is overcrowded).
The 2D Fighter tag has peaked in 2021, with 194 games released. The tag's popularity is in a range between 0.02% in 2012 and 0.13% in 2021.
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.
2D Fighter's popularity amongst players
This chart shows the reviews for games with the 2D Fighter tag, either as count and as a percentage of all Steam reviews, and the average value for a game. 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.
While the review count clearly quantifies the reviews a tag 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 2D Fighter tag games.
A standard game associated with this tag received on average between 40 (2010) and 813 (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 tag.
The reviews per game as a percentage of the average show that games in the 2D Fighter tag received between 60% (2012) and 145% (2018) reviews compared to other tags.
