Controller's popularity amongst developers
This chart displays the games released over the years with the Controller tag and the percentage of total Steam releases they represent. The number of releases gives an appreciation of the quantity of games published each year. It often tends to increase naturally, just like the total amount of Steam games released.
The percentage, on the other hand, gives a better view of the trend a tag follows. It shows if, in proportion, the Controller tag 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, tag is undercrowded) or if it's the opposite.
The Controller tag has peaked in 2022, with 1141 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 0.88% in 2013 and 0.3% in 2020.
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.
