Tag created in June 2017
Historical's popularity amongst developers
This graph shows games released over the years with the Historical tag and the percentage 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 idea of the trend a tag follows. It shows if, in proportion, the Historical 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 Historical game tag peaked in 2022 with 329 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 0.82% in 2010 and 0.15% in 2018.
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.
Historical's popularity amongst players
This chart shows the reviews for games with the Historical tag, either as count and as a percentage of all Steam reviews, and the average value for a game. Note that 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.
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 Historical tag games.
A typical game associated with this tag collected on average between 26 (2010) and 1193 (2014) 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 Historical tag received between 71% (2010) and 311% (2019) reviews compared to other tags.
Price of games tagged with Historical
This graph displays the evolution of the Historical 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.
The median game price peaked in 2012 at 14.99$, and bottomed in 2021 at 7.99$. The percentage of free to play peaked in 2018 at 14%, and bottomed in 2023 at 2%.
Positive reviews ratio for Historical, per language
This graph shows an aggregated Steam rating for the whole Historical tag, separated by language. It helps estimate how different audiences judge a game with this tag. A lower rating doesn't always mean that the audience doesn't enjoy that particular tag, as some cultures tend to always give lower scores. But it will affect a game's rating nonetheless.
The highest rating for Historical is 93% for the Romanian language, and the lowest is 75% for the Japanese language.
