Ninja's popularity amongst developers
This chart shows the amount of games released over the years with the Ninja tag and the percentage of games released on Steam they account for. 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 Ninja tag is getting more or less popular from a developer's perspective. 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 Ninja tag has peaked in 2021, with 79 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 0.11% in 2010 and 0.03% in 2011.
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.
Ninja's popularity amongst players
This chart shows the reviews for games with the Ninja tag, either as count and as a percentage of all Steam reviews, and the average value for a 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 Ninja tag games.
A typical game associated with this tag collected on average between 8 (2010) and 2096 (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.
The reviews per game as a percentage of the average show that games in the Ninja tag received between 22% (2010) and 589% (2019) reviews compared to other tags.
