Wikipedia trends
« on: October 10, 2011, 08:30:13 AM »
This web page gives some interesting traffic statistics about Wikipedia page views of various transport/city building simulation games. The top result, perhaps unsurprisingly, is "Transport Tycoon", followed closely by "Railroad Tycoon". Simutrans is 6th on the list of 16, just one beneath SimCity 4: Rush Hour, and above Chris Sawyer's Locomotion and Traffic Giant.

Simutrans-Experimental is listed separately at 14th - above Transport Giant and Rails Across America.

That's very interesting. The Experimental result is rather puzzling, however, since the page now seems to simply redirect to the main Simutrans article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simutrans_experimental

Yes, that is rather odd.

Well, this is probably just the count on that wiki. According to statistics from wikipedia, Simutrans was queried 2293 times in september (http://stats.grok.se/en/201109/Simutrans) and OpenTTD 5473 (what seems a realistic relation, given that both project have their own wiki and the OpenTTD section forum is about twice as active).
