Steam released their personalized recap, and I knew mine would have some interesting results. Let’s take a look at said results now.
I was actually surprised by some of the information, specifically the fact I have played 30 games in the year. I thought it would be less when it comes specifically to Steam, and maybe 30 total across all systems I have. The number of unlocked achievements was also surprising, but with mostly new games it is actually more reasonable.
How You Compare
Another thing I found interesting was the comparison with other Steam users. I was expecting to be below most averages, but I was wrong! My numbers is largely because of playing many new games to write about.
You Are What You Play
First things first, I laughed at seeing Cats on here. It isn’t wrong in the least bit, but when looking at game genres or tags I wasn’t expecting Cats to be included. As for the other five points, I don’t find any of those surprising and they all fit my preferred types of games.
A Closer Look
These five games seem to be my most replayed during the year, which mostly makes sense. Let’s look further.
I definitely played a lot of Disney Dreamlight Valley right after release, so this being my most played game isn’t surprising at all. I am surprised the daily streak isn’t longer since it felt like I played daily for like two weeks.
I had a strong urge to play Armello and finish the mastery track for my main River, and I did finally achieve it after numerous games. I don’t normally grind a game like that, but I really wanted the last reward in the track.
I honestly don’t remember every playing this game this year, but clearly I did back in February. I do enjoy the Roller Coaster Tycoon games and will have moments of playing for hours on end, which is probably what happened in the second month of the year.
I don’t remember how I was introduced to Dorfromantik, but it is certainly one of my favorite games I played this year. It is definitely a big part of why relaxing was part of my web of games I played, because it is quite relaxing.
I had a small stint of playing Town of Salem again for the first time in a while, and I think it was driven by watching some YouTubers play it again after a long time as well. It was definitely a short lived stint, but it’s nice to return to a familiar game sometimes.
August and September were definitely busy with playing games for reviews as well as my own interests. I definitely have phases where I game more at certain times. Of course this is only for Steam, and I know I had some moments of playing on my Switch more than Steam.
All The Games I Played (on Steam)
Quite the collection, right? Many of these games I have written about, while some might get posts in the new year. A few are from when I judged for Indie Cup Canada, and others just for my own enjoyment.
And that is my Steam Replay for 2022! I always enjoy these kinds of recaps, and I’m looking forward to seeing what next year brings!

Oh hey, I got “cats” as one of my top genres, too! 😂
With my Steam replay I saw how some games I thought I played last year I actually played this year like Hellblade I remember really enjoying but don’t remember when I started it.
