Sports's popularity amongst developers
This graph shows games released over the years with the Sports 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 Sports 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 Sports game tag peaked in 2022 with 472 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 0.14% in 2012 and 0.65% 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.
