The Longest Game Name On Steam, And Other Interesting Facts

We see stats about Steam all the time, but they're usually pretty boring. Here, instead, are some weird and interesting ones about the most popular colours in screenshots, and how long game titles have gotten.

Using data pulled from SteamSpy, developer Tim Garbos has crunched all kinds of data to come up with findings such as "The average game title in 2004 was 25.7 characters and in 2017 it's down to 16.6 characters", how dark screenshots have become, and that the game with the longest title on Steam has 96 characters in it.

That game, if you're wondering, is Tales of Monkey Island Complete Pack: Chapter 4 - The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood.

Tim's graphs — which are pulling numbers but shouldn't be considered hard science — are below. For budding indie developers, they might be useful to help make your game stand out from the crowd. For everyone else, go see how many games you own that only have six letters in them.


    The length of that title is nothing next to:

    Summer-Colored High School ★ Adolescent Record – A Summer At School On An Island Where I Contemplate How The First Day After I Transferred, I Ran Into A Childhood Friend And Was Forced To Join The Journalism Club Where While My Days As A Paparazzi Kid With Great Scoops Made Me Rather Popular Among The Girls, But Strangely My Camera Is Full Of Panty Shots, And Where My Candid Romance Is Going.

      Sounds like a Light Novel series title.

      And I used to think "Is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon" was a long title. Seems I was wrong

    Certain people would pay good money for these stats...

    What is a good game title? It's exactly 6 characters long according to @Steam_Spy data

    "Dota 2" - 6 chars (inc space)
