Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has grown by 1000% on Steam over the past few weeks. Cause? A few memes about the game. Since its launch ten years ago, a PlatinumGames game has not shown such performance.
Let me try to explain: in general, some meme templates depicting the characters of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance went viral, and in the wake of this social phenomenon, many decided to dust off the game.
As explained by PlayTracker Insight, the average number of players at the end of 2021 was between 300 and 800, but since January 2022 it has regularly exceeded 2000, thanks to the “Jetstream Sam Thinking” meme and others. Many players also actively participated in unlocking various achievements.
