Psychological's popularity amongst developers
This graph shows games released over the years with the Psychological 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 view of the trend a tag follows. It shows if, in proportion, the Psychological 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 Psychological game tag peaked in 2022 with 247 games released. The tag's popularity is in a range between 0.03% in 2011 and 0.16% in 2022.
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.
Psychological's popularity amongst players
On this chart, you can see the reviews for games associated with the Psychological 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.
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 Psychological tag games.
A standard game associated with this tag received on average between 28 (2010) and 1593 (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.
