Year in review 2023 (Switch/PSN/XB/ETC)

Let's share our years in review!! My numbers are weirder this year because of the wrist injury which stopped me playing for several months.

Here's Xbox first. I really thought I played more but probably I wasn't signed in all the time. I just played an hour of Cocoon on xbox last night, so who knows what's up.

Citizen Sleeper is the only one of these I really played for fun rather than research, but chained echoes was decent.

That Citizen Sleeper stuff is the DLC, since I beat the game last year.

Now for the one that's always hilarious, the Switch:

the 6 games I played were harvestella, lil gator game, splatoon 3, kirby and the forgotten land, shin chan, and pocky and rocky. I beat lil gator game! and harvestella I played a lot because I don't really know why. It's fine!

I have apparently not touched the switch since april lol

If I ever get a working switch maybe I'll play a little more!!!

Now playstation, the console I play the most. very funny that my first game of the year was COD but that's because I had to for judging awards.

As every year, my most played game is a yakuza.

I found this stat interesting - I played 81 hours total, of which 70% were PS4. Very curious to see what that is for everyone else (of course in this case it's because I played yakuza 6, which I forgot is a PS4 game). Oh and I got 101 trophies but who cares.

anyway let's see everyone's!!!

When I left my job last summer, I apparently stopped playing the Switch:

A good portion of that was probably due to playing with the MiSTer more and more, especially once the N64 and Saturn cores improved. The other portion was probably knitting and crocheting and whatnot.

@exodus so what do you think about Voice of Cards? I loved the art style but after beating the first one I figured I “got it” and don't need to check out the sequels.

Anyway here is a bit of PlayStation wrap up. I look insane but Dead By Daylight is our wind down game. My partner and I take turns, relax and talk about our days. Apart from that I'm a pretty mainstream dude, unless it's because the games that I really like don't take 50 hours to complete.

@“MovingCastles”#p144078 oh I strongly disliked voice of cards. it‘s in our “game of the year” podcast as one of the games I played but didn’t rank.

Haven‘t got an Xbox and apparently I only played 19 hours of Switch this year so here’s my PS5 stats.

@“Chopemon”#p144081 looks like 91% of your play was ps5, too. that's what I get for being behind on yakuza games!

@“exodus”#p144080 yeah I can understand. I thought it was ‘charming’ enough in a Final Fantasy 1 sort of way. But there is only so far that gimmick can take you.

Would be cool if they released that thing as an RPG Maker sort of deal and let people come up with creative shtuff for it.

@Chopemon I can still hear the Rock-Paper-Scissor song in my head till this day. What a fun game.

I only got Switch and Xbox out of these, but my Xbox one looks very on-brand for this forum:

On Switch, I did a bad job of playing 2023 stuff this year (I'm trying to squeeze a bunch of little ones in during the holidays -- after Zelder, my most-played games were Disco Elysium and Dark Souls), but I think this screenshot does a pretty good job of capturing how I like to hop around all over the place on that system, as a handheld:

(if this had Final Fantasy II and V instead of VI and III, it'd be more accurate to this year)



Haven't played much to the PS4 apart from Lost Judgment, which I played 74 hours to it.

@“tokucowboy”#p144087 very kino screenshots, as they say

yeah, I gotta get on exoprimal myself!

The Nintendo one highlighted that the two Atlus games I played took a lot of time, and also my 5 year old kid and I played a lot of Mario 64, which I had never owned. There are other RPGs just below the fold, like my replay of Triangle Strategy and my last hours with Tactics Ogre: Reborn.

The Playstation one illustrates that I've put a cumulative 243 hours into playing games with my kid on the platform this year. Minecraft is obvious; we play in tandem or sometimes multiplayer. For The Witness, the kid is obsessed with walking around and exploring the island. I do whatever new puzzles he finds. In this routine, I beat that game twice and did the timed record puzzle more times than I ever would have otherwise. Then Ishin, BG3, and FFXVI represent the other major games I played.

Yeah, this is about the right breakdown for my life overall:

My PS4 is jailbroken and has not connected to PSN in two years, but just for kicks (also Sony's page deals so many more hurdles to jump over to log in for this):

>!


Ah I always enjoy seeing everyone's year-end wrap-ups.

Last year mine was too embarrassing to share, but this year, it's not! The only non handheld game I played this year was Chained Echoes, on PC. It was fun!

But I only play DS, 3DS and Switch, and two of those don't keep any ~~invasive~~ fancy statistics!

Here's what I have:

Sorry, I have a Japanese PSN account, but I’ll translate these illuminating stats for y’all.

I played the grand total of [size=30]1[/size] games on the PlayStation^TM 5 in 2023.

I played the grand total of [size=30]18[/size] hours on the PlayStation^TM 5 in 2023.

The game I played the most is [size=30]Final Fantasy XVI[/size] for the grand total of [size=30]18[/size] hours, which accounts for an impressive [size=30]100%[/size] of the time spent on my PlayStation^TM 5 in 2023.

Sony Japan claims my favorite genre is [size=30]RPG[/size] even though the only game I played was Final Fantasy XVI. Must be a bug.

Sony Japan claims my style of play is [size=30]一匹狼[/size], or « lone wolf », but maybe they are mistaking me for someone who was happy about the decision to have a single character party in Final Fantasy XVI.

Most of my time was spent on Switch and Steam Deck this year but I have not yet received the year-end summary for these accounts.







I wonder how many of those hours in FFXVI I had the game paused and was doing something else bc I got bored. Quite a few I would guess!


@“◉◉maru”#p144109 Oh! Here we go.

The Japanese version of the page says instead “_did you remember playing this game?_“ and the honest answer would be “_no_”.

Speaking of Japanese, fun fact, it seems the same games are classified by completely different genres depending on the language selected, which in turns changes the stats.

_1. Action 2. Adventure 3. Free-roaming 4. Games in which the player sets their own objectives 5. Survival 6. Mystery solving_

Survival !? I guess that’s a tag for Tears of the Kingdom in Japan as the promotion emphasized the survival element. All six Japanese tags apply to TOTK now that I think about it. (I am sure there is a better and more succint translation for 4., sorry...)

bejeweled goty. I'm the core gamer that xbox is unable to figure out.

@“mindleftbody”#p144112 I wonder how many of those hours in FFXVI I had the game paused and was doing something else bc I got bored. Quite a few I would guess!

This is at least 30% of my FFXVI time too.... and Persona 5 Tactica didn't kill the process on my computer when I quit so it's like 30 hours more than it should be lmao
