    Just like the waves of an ocean, popularity can be greater or can diminish.

    I think this comes from what surfers do--they try to "catch the wave" (get on top) and "ride it" (stay on top for as long as possible).

    So it means this game has become increasingly popular, and at this moment it's enjoying an immense favour in the eyes of the viewers/general public.
