Dating Sim tag
Tag created in June 2017
Dating Sim's popularity amongst developers
This chart displays the games released over the years with the Dating Sim 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 Dating Sim 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 Dating Sim tag has peaked in 2022, with 241 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 0.05% in 2012 and 0.2% in 2015.
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.
Dating Sim's popularity amongst players
This chart shows the reviews for games with the Dating Sim 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.
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 Dating Sim tag games.
A typical game associated with this tag collected on average between 93 (2012) and 804 (2020) 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.

Positive reviews ratio for Dating Sim, per language
This chart shows an aggregated Steam rating for all the Dating Sim tag games, classed by language. It helps estimate how different audiences judge a game with this tag.
