The Steam game data was collected from Craig Kelly's public data hosted on Data.world
. The Internet statistics was obtained from The World Bank
. This data was checked to ensure that it had the appropriate licensing for this use.
Many of the release dates of the games were incorrectly formatted or were uninformative eg. "Coming soon!" Or "Next Summer!". These entries were removed.
The edges of the data for internet usage were trimmed in order to keep a constant number of data entries per year.
I used the worldwide data from the internet usage data set and the count of games released per year with the tag Multiplayer to create a line chart that overlaid a column graph.
