Am I nonetheless writing about 2022? I’m sorry. I’ll doubtless be finished with that by the tip of this week.
However right here we’re with Steam which has gotten into the entire finish of the 12 months abstract factor for people with Steam Replay (discover about it right here and tips on how to discover your personal) and, as I’m clearly into that type of factor… I imply, disgrace on you when you hadn’t seen that up so far I suppose… I’m going to write about mine.
Actually, in comparison with some folks’s, mine is fairly delicate. However, as we established on Monday, I solely performed 20 video games on my PC… that twenty first was on the Swap… so there received’t be any astonishing numbers. However I’ll put it on file and, on the finish of the put up, I’ll hyperlink out to all people else’s put up about Steam Replay so you possibly can see some extra fascinating… or a minimum of completely different… variations.
So right here is the abstract.
Out of the 20 PC titles I performed in 2022, 10 of them had been on Steam. I didn’t rely EVE Valkyrie in my abstract as a result of I solely logged in to take some display screen photographs earlier than it was shut down final summer season together with the remainder of CCP’s VR choices.
That speaks properly for Steam I suppose. I may, theoretically play EVE On-line and EverQuest II by way of Steam, however I see no upside and significantly draw back to both.
The highest titles had been unsurprisingly Valheim and Misplaced Ark. Valheim was in second place for titles I spent probably the most time with in 2022.
The who vary of titles I performed on Steam:
Not that many, however a minimum of which means all of them match on one good card. Not like Krikket at Nerd Lady Ideas who had 198 titles to cope with. (Her Steam Replay put up is linked beneath.)
Nonetheless, the individuals who weblog about video video games may be outliers. Steam says in opposition to the general common my numbers will not be all that small. I unlocked extra achievements, performed extra titles, and had an extended play streak than the typical Steam consumer I collect.
I do surprise what number of of these folks play only one sport… or performed no video games for that matter.
There was additionally some try and classify the form of video games I play.
I’m undecided how “house” figures so extremely. Does RimWorld rely? Shouldn’t or not it’s a colony sim? Or did Stellaris affect that? You’d assume with solely 11 titles this might be type of apparent. Open World Suvival Craft needs to be Valheim a minimum of.
Then Steam tries to type out the titles I performed by age.
27%, or 4 titles, had been “new releases,” which is definitely form of shocking to me. Although maybe they need to weight this entire factor by how a lot time I spent taking part in as properly.
73% had been “latest favorites,” that means they had been launched within the final seven years.
The odd bit, when you’re aware of what I play, is that none of my titles performed rely as “basic” since that’s just about my modus operandi round right here. Once more, EVE On-line and EverQuest II and World of Warcraft, all within the high 5 of my beforehand linked to complete play time for 2022, are getting shut to twenty years of age. I suppose I don’t play video games on Steam that pre-date Steam.
There may be a lesson in that.
Oh, and there’s something a couple of streak the place I performed a Steam sport 45 days in a row between February 18th and April 4th, which corresponds with my Misplaced Ark and Valheim play instances in 2022.
Anyway that’s the put up. Steam gave me some stats an I wrote a bit about them. There have been a number of different charts, like what months I performed which video games, however I believe I coated that in Monday’s put up extra completely, so there we go. Additionally, I added one new buddy on Steam in 2022. I neglect who. Hiya!
