Rhythm's popularity amongst developers
This graph shows games released over the years with the Rhythm tag and the percentage 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, on the other hand, gives a better view of the trend a tag follows. It shows if, in proportion, the Rhythm tag is getting more or less popular. 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 Rhythm game tag peaked in 2021 with 145 games released. The tag's popularity is in a range between 0.22% in 2010 and 0.06% 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.
Rhythm's popularity amongst players
On this chart, you can see the reviews for games associated with the Rhythm tag, both as count and as a percentage of all Steam reviews, and the value for an average 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 Rhythm tag games.
A standard game associated with this tag received on average between 136 (2012) and 668 (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 Rhythm tag received between 58% (2017) and 405% (2010) reviews compared to other tags.
