CRPG's popularity amongst developers
This graph shows games released over the years with the CRPG tag and the percentage 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 idea of the trend a tag follows. It shows if, in proportion, the CRPG tag 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, tag is undercrowded) or if it's the opposite.
The CRPG game tag peaked in 2022 with 175 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 0.04% in 2010 and 0.19% in 2013.
Bear in mind that 2023 is not over yet. The number of releases will continue to increase, but the percentage is already a good estimate of things to come.
CRPG's popularity amongst players
This chart shows the reviews for games with the CRPG tag, either as count and as a percentage of all Steam reviews, and the average value for a game. Note that if the chart is cluttered, you can always deactivate some lines by clicking on the legend.
The review count gives a view of the sheer amount of reviews a tag 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 CRPG tag games.
A typical game associated with this tag collected on average between 6 (2010) and 786 (2020) reviews. Bear in mind that it is the average, and it can be strongly influenced by extreme values, like the release of a very popular game with this tag.
The reviews per game as a percentage of the average show that games in the CRPG tag received between 17% (2010) and 225% (2018) reviews compared to other tags.
Price of games tagged with CRPG
This graph displays the evolution of the CRPG tag's games price in USD over the years, and the percentage of free to play games in this tag. Bear in mind that there is inflation over time, which means that a price should slowly increase just to keep the same value.

Positive reviews ratio for CRPG, per language
This graph shows an aggregated Steam rating for the whole CRPG tag, separated by language. It gives an idea about how different audiences will judge a game with this tag.
