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:

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.

By default, your Steam Year in Review 2023 is private. Only you can see it. At the top of the page, however, you can change the privacy settings to Friends only or Public. Doing so will allow you to copy and share a link to your review by using the Share button. You can also share your review on your Steam activity feed on this page.

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.

OLED was the hero of PC gaming this year
Horizon Zero Dawn on the LG UltraGear OLED 45.

It's been hard to avoid OLED among the best gaming monitors this year. What started as a trickle of OLED late last year turned into a flood of OLED this year, with every major monitor brand jumping in on the OLED hype. And now that we're closing out the year, I can see why.

OLED has made playing PC games so much better this year. We finally have great HDR on PC, super low response times, and panel tech, making the monstrous monitors we've grown to love much more practical.

We predicted gaming’s 2023 future last December. Here’s what we got right
A zombie crawls toward a player on a boardwalk in Dead Island 2.

At the end of every year, there's one article I always look forward to writing. I try to put the "Trends" in Digital Trends" by predicting where gaming is headed in the coming year. It's a fun thought experiment that puts my expertise to the test as I try to pull together narratives and pin down what the industry is building to. Sometimes I'm spot-on. Other times, I'm hilariously off.

As I began to think about this year's edition, I decided to look back to what I'd written almost exactly one year ago on New Year's Day 2023.  Some of my predictions were right on the money, but others were more sobering. I expected some major growth moments and devastating layoffs occurred instead. Some of those were hard to see coming -- especially in the bizarre case of the Embracer Group. Still, my reflection on what I was expecting reminded me of what a tough industry games can be even when its pumping out historic titles. This year, I'm peeling back the curtain to talk about what I got right and wrong about a tumultuous 2023.

How gaming laptops grew up in 2023

Raw power. High refresh rates. RGB. These are some of the defining factors of the best gaming laptops, and they have been for years. But for as much portable power as you could buy, most gaming laptops have skipped a critical element of a great gaming experience: the screen.

In years past, you could find a high refresh rate or good image quality, but you generally couldn't have both. In 2023, gaming laptops grew up, providing both the speed and quality gamers have come to expect, and that sets 2024 up to be an exciting year in the world of gaming laptops.
Let's look back
