Steam Year in Review 2023 is live — here’s how to see your Steam Replay

Steam introduced Steam Replay last year for the first time, and it’s back again for 2023. As we close out the year, you get a chance to look back at a bunch of stats for 2023, similar to Xbox Year in Review and PlayStation Wrap-Up. Here, we will show you how to see your Steam Year in Review for 2023.

The wrap-up includes a ton of detail, from what games you’ve played to how many achievements you’ve unlocked. Steam Year in Review is only live for a limited time, but you can download and share your review while it’s running, as well as add it to your Steam profile so you can see it throughout the next year.

If you open the Steam app now while you’re logged in, you’ll see a banner ad for Steam Year in Review. Click on it, and you’ll see your review. Valve will likely replace this banner when the Steam Winter Sale starts on December 21. If you’re looking for your Year in Review after that point, you can find it by heading to the following URL and logging in: https://store.steampowered.com/yearinreview.

By default, the review is set to private, but you can make it public and share it on other platforms (we’ll show you how to do this shortly). At the bottom of the review, you’ll also find a link to last year in case you want to check up on what you accomplished then.

Similar to last year, you’ll automatically receive a badge for viewing your Steam Year in Review. Valve doesn’t tell you that there’s a badge, but you’ll see it pop up in your inventory after checking out your Year in Review alongside your other badges.

If you use Steam a lot, these badges are a big deal. They contribute to the XP of your profile and increase your XP levels in your Steam profile. Thankfully, you don’t need to do anything special for this badge. Just check out your Year in Review, and you’ll get it automatically.

Valve also offers three quick mock-ups for sharing on other platforms — a square format for Instagram feeds, a tall format for Snapchat and TikTok, and a wide format for X (formerly Twitter) and Facebook. To use these, click the Share button at the top of your review and select the format you want. Then, select Save image. You can change the language of these mockups at the top of the page, as well.

Finally, you can add your Year in Review to your Steam profile as a featured showcase. To do so, click the Share button and select Add profile showcase. Note, you can’t add a showcase or copy a link to your review if it’s set to private.

The GPU shortage is over, but it’s still wreaking havoc
Three graphics cards on a gray background.

The GPU shortage was rough. It was the height of the pandemic, and all you could do was stay inside and play games, and yet, the cost of upgrading your graphics card was as much as buying a used car. Double or triple the list price of already expensive GPUs, and that was before you dealt with actually finding a place to buy one. I was fortunate enough to find one of the best graphics cards at list price, but most people didn't.

Most people didn't upgrade at all, at least if Steam hardware surveys from the last several months are anything to go by. I mean, the GTX 1060 is still the third most popular GPU on Steam, and that card is old enough to enter the third grade next year. The GPU shortage wasn't fun for anyone, but it still has a lingering effect today.

It served as a joyful celebration of the entire franchise, reflecting that in gameplay with the titular Engage system that allows player units to get more powerful and gain additional abilities by working with classic Fire Emblem characters.
