Tag created in June 2017
Gaming's popularity amongst developers
This chart displays the games released over the years with the Gaming 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 Gaming tag is getting more or less popular. 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 Gaming tag has peaked in 2019, with 11 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 0.02% in 2017 and 0.0027% 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.
Gaming's popularity amongst players
On this chart, you can see the reviews for games associated with the Gaming tag, both as count and as a percentage of all Steam reviews, and the value for an average 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 Gaming tag games.
A typical game associated with this tag collected on average between 604 (2015) and 78 (2023) 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 Gaming tag received between 26% (2020) and 136% (2015) reviews compared to other tags.
