With the end of 2023 rapidly approaching, it’s time to look back fondly on the year and your achievements therein. Oh no, wait, I don’t mean real-life achievements — I mean all the games you played over the last 12 months to occupy your time between global crises.
Several major gaming platforms have followed Spotify Wrapped’s well-worn footsteps to provide detailed accountings of your gaming habits throughout 2023. If you’re having trouble figuring out where to go for these personalized reports, here’s a quick breakdown of the year-end festivities.
How long you have: Until January 13
What’s covered: First game played, total games played, total gaming time, total trophies earned, your top five games (based on hours, trophies, and playtime ratio), a monthly activity breakdown, your gaming style (I’m a Thrill Seeker apparently), a playlist of PlayStation Plus games that fit your gaming style, and your social style (Lone Wolf, baby).
PlayStation 2023 Wrap-Up also provides you with a bunch of downloadable cards for easy sharing of these various stats on social media.
How long you have: Until January 31
What’s covered: Total games played, most-played games (with links to similar games), total gaming time, total achievements earned, total Gamerscore points earned, top gameplay month, a pie chart breakdown of your favorite genres, and how you stack up against other Xbox users.
Xbox also shared a few communal stats, noting that 36,000 games were played between everyone on Xbox platforms for a total of 4.5 billion trophies and 91 billion Gamerscore points.
How long you have: No deadline given
What’s covered: First game played, total games played, most-played games, total gaming time, busiest month, a breakdown of your gaming trends by genre, and the ability to choose your favorite game.
Much like the PlayStation wrap-up, Nintendo also provides downloadable image cards for sharing your details elsewhere.
Where: store.steampowered.com/yearinreview or the Steam client
How long you have: No deadline given, but seeing as the year in review for 2022 is still available, I’m guessing a long time.
What’s covered: Total games played (including separate totals for new games and demos), total play time with monthly graphs, top three games by total play time and sessions, total achievements earned, longest gaming streak, a spider graph breakdown of your favorite genres, and how you stack up against other Steam users.
Steam also allows you to add your year in review report to your profile so your friends can check it out.
