Some of you may be considering posting a game to Kongregate in order to enjoy the cash flow from Revenue Sharing rather than selling your game on your own or in conjunction with sales on other platforms.

For those that are wondering what games types get the most plays on Kongregate I am making this post to list the top 10 most played game types. If you are trying to run a business in game development it may be important to see where certain games thrive in what markets.

The following is based on multiple games in these genres that may include multiple listings for hybrid games. This sample is derived from top ranked games in their categories.

Tyrant - 39 Million Plays - Multiplayer & Collectable Card Game
Backyard Monsters - 37.6 Million - Multiplayer & Proxy Fighter (Pokemon like)

These two games didn't make it into the Sample collected due to the nature of how Kongregate sorts.

These two games easily push Multiplayer to number one and CCG 2nd and Proxy Fighter games somewhere in 5th or 6th.
