Our Data Standards
The value we provide to the gaming community comes from the quality of data we are able to offer. Steambase has best-in-class data powered by Steam, our data partners, and in-house experts. Data is enriched, cleansed, verified, and updated in real-time to ensure we surface the most up-to-date gaming insights.
Prior to integrating with a new data source, we undergo a rigorous evaluation process to ensure information is accurate. This process includes cross referencing data points against other sources, ensuring it is avaiable for all Steam games, and it is regularly updated.
The Steambase “Player Score” is an aggregated review score calculated for every single game listed on Steam. This score is on a scale of 1 to 100 where a score of “1” indicates overwhelmingly negative feedback for a game and a score of “100” indicates near-perfect ratings. Our system fetches and analyzes these reviews in real-time, so the “Player Score” shown for a game will update as more reviews are detected.
The score we show is calculated and derived from ratings left on the Steam store by actual players who have purchased and played the game. It is weighted by the total number of reviews fetched — meaning a game with many reviews is more likely to have a score that is either higher or lower than a game with only a handful of reviews.
