Apart from the scale on the left not going all the way up to 30m what's the problem with this graph? Scales are linear, color coding is clear, and the data it's trying to highlight is easily understood? Am i missing something.

Also fortnite is clearly more entertaining than pubg

I assume it's "rank of game in total watches per week" it's just not labelled anywhere.

I also made the same assumption. I concede that the key should explain it, wouldn't call it an "awful graph" based on that alone though.

Hey, Adora.



I would. I had no clue what most of that stuff meant. At first I thought the M might be minutes on the Y axis, until I realized that didn't really work and figured out that it meant Millions, but it didn't explain the rank label on the bars AT ALL and I couldn't make heads or tails of that, and it doesn't help that "Hours watched per week" is above the color key so I was like "2 hours per week? Like, average per viewer? What?"

It's too confusingly laid out to get away with not labeling things. That alone makes it awful imo

I'm kind of wondering what happened in January there, too.

LoL is obviously looming in first the entire time until Fortnite beats it at the end, but there's an interesting shift in the absolute position of number two between 1/1 and 1/29. Something's got a lot of viewers on 1/15 and then fewer two weeks later. What peaks over holiday time? Was there a DOTA 2 tournament or CSGO or something? I don't even know what the youth these days watch I just assume it's moba or fps and not like, really big fighting game tournament.

The winter Games Done Quick marathon, which raised a fuckton of money for charity, was the constant #1 in that time frame I believe

I'm not sure if that explains it since each individual game gets really small amount of time. I think the new Zelda had the largest overall audience with 4 hours and 150k-170k spectators so even that's less than million hours

It's kind of misleading because it might be more accurate to show total hours viewed rather then number of viewers but they straddled the fence in a weird way.

A classic.

For anyone not familiar, it's Google interest for "international men's day" that spikes every March (women's day) but only has a fraction of interest in November, the actual international men's day.

That's why I figured it wasn't GDQ - sure, if you aggregated, GDQ would probably be #1, but I bet it's one of these:

Russia is often considered part of europe. Its kind of a weird case where 90% of the landmass is in asia but 90% of the people are in europe and theres differing opinions where to even draw the continental border. And then you start to get into the whole Eurasia/Oceania debate and all of that just leads to tears.

Year is meant to be used ordinally, so it’s silly to give it a categorical color map (and a lovely not-color-blind-safe one at that), but I’d give it a 7/10. Also the trends seem to be mostly linear, so a table or bar chart with just the slope term would do a better job of conveying the rate at which the forecasting is getting better, if that’s the intent.

It's hard to tell from that graph (dammit, Google, I'm as fond of Tufte as you but there such a thing as having too few labels), but it looks like there are sometimes three spikes per year. The big one is on IWD, one of the small ones on IMD, but what's the other one?
