The publisher section surprised me.

Yep that's exactly what's going on. It's a collection of the top aspects from the top 100 games.

I'd buy it.

Average name length is about 2-3. And it's just a random name from all words contains in Top 100 names.

The fact that the majority of families are individual series of games, or other similarly specific things, and Kickstarter is a more general category and more likely to have a higher frequency in any given sample?
