Steam Statistics: From The Longest Game Title To The Best One

Tim Garbos took some data from SteamSpy to come up with a few interesting statistics.

Let’s start with the longest game title: Tales of Monkey Island Complete Pack: Chapter 4 – The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood – that is a total of 96 characters. Try to say that without breathing. In 2004, the average game title length was 25.7 characters, which dropped to 16.6 in 2017.

There’s also saturation, the color of screenshots (!), the brightness or darkness of screenshots (2007 turned out to be the darkest year, apparently), and Garbos also thinks the best way to name our game is to limit it to only six characters in the title. (That’s not a lot of space…) There’s also a brief comparison between male and female terms used in the games’ descriptions. You can spot a pattern here, too.

We wonder, how much time did Garbos take to put together these results? We don’t know…
