Reception of game releases this week

i'm sure everyone does this- go by number of replies how popular a release is.
This week's releases have all got around 30 replies which is a sort of 'meh'/niche reception?

Here we go:
Socēer Clicker 17- niche
Harvest moon 20- niche
Looty Dungeon- 31 mild hype
Space bang -19 -growing?
Disney Crossy Road- 60
Kingdom hearts-68
No THING- 36
Pktball- 30
Chameleon Run -55
Go Surf-15
Tohtum- 0
Assault Commando 2 -29
Galaxy Run 2 -4
Walpargis Night- 10
Pug's Quest -13
Flippycups 0
Pet Pirates 0

Tldr: I am guessing the game of the week by popularity of their game threads.

I like your theory. I work on the same basis sometimes. If I see a game has four pages of comments before I've even seen the thread, that's usually a good sign!

I will add, though, that Kingdom Hearts might have had a few more responses if it wasn't US only.

PKTBALL is really good, though, if you like that tennis/Pong thing.

Great theory .
Only one that is really deceiving is pktball or whatever it's called. This game is crazy addictive and fun.
It's a hidden gem.
I think once people get the word out it should blow up or what will suck is if people don't ever find out how great it is

Hm I wonder if pure gameplay games threads are flawed then when considering numbers. I remember Faily Brakes got few replies, and you rarely see threads for Boombit and that.
