Fantasy's popularity amongst developers
This chart displays the games released over the years with the Fantasy tag and the percentage of total Steam releases 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 gives a better estimate of the tag's trend. It shows if the Fantasy tag is getting more or less popular amongst developers. 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 Fantasy game tag peaked in 2022 with 1695 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 1.7% in 2012 and 0.64% in 2017.
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.

A typical game associated with this tag collected on average between 30 (2010) and 787 (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.
