Steam Replay is Valve's new highlight page going over a bunch of fun stats about your gaming year, something made popular by the likes of Spotify Wrapped and similar events from numerous other places.
It's actually quite a fun bit of info and you can set your own page public to send it to others too. I'm not going to because mine is a little embarrassing in some ways. It gives you a look over how many new games you played, what platforms your played on, the games you put the most time into, the biggest genres you played, how much time you used keyboard + mouse or gamepad, your top VR games, your longest gaming streak and so on. So you can find out fun details like 9% of your total playtime being in Deep Rock Galactic.
Steam Replay takes data between January 1st and December 14th 2022, and does not include any offline mode play, which explains why some of mine are a lot lower than I expected. I put myself in offline mode a lot, otherwise I end up getting spammed with messages a bit too much about new games.
The page certainly needs some work to view on the desktop though, it's clearly a mobile-first design and looks a little bit too massive on desktop.
I'm actually surprised my plain "Linux" (desktop) time was still so big, then again it probably shouldn't surprise me since I test a lot of games for GamingOnLinux directly across my desktop and Steam Deck. Plus I use Remote Play too so there's that.
You even get a nice collage of all the games you played too. No surprise to see Vampire Survivors in my top list there, that game was very difficult to put down after initially getting into it.
Feel free to share yours in the comments.
Valve also sent out a press email about it and made another silly trailer:

I'm confused why it says "screenshot shared: –" but it also correctly has the PlateUp! screenshot I shared yesterday.
Slay the Spire and One Deck Dungeon would be a bit higher if it was counting offline playtime since I often play those on my Deck offline.
But I'm not sure I like all that tracking stuff....
Sadly, it pulled too early, because I've been playing Mass Effect 2 on Legendary Edition pretty much non-stop since last week. It would've ranked higher.
I wish Cyberpunk 2077 wasn't so prominent. I didn't hate the game, but I didn't love it either. Yet, I put enough hours into it that it gets a spotlight. Ah well.
Oh, one last addendum to mine; don't expect RetroArch to go up again. I ran into problems with the RetroArch Flatpak back in Late Spring, and used the Steam version for a while; hence the playtime. Nowadays, I run the Flatpak again. The Steam version still lacks the melonDS core, which is the only core I use for DS games.
Yep. Largest amount of hours in a single game and it pretty much dethroned Fallout 2 as my favorite Fallout. Still got the DLC to look forward to!
I play a lot of games outside of Steam so I keep track and do my own end of the year report. So far I have wasted about 17 days or 4.6% of the year playing games...

Steam Deck only got 2% of my gameplay, but I played 9 games over 27 sessions? Considering I mostly just use my Steam Deck to watch videos streamed from my desktop or play rpcs3, I'm surprised the session and game count is so high.
