Following the example of many other platforms, Valve has provided its users on Steam with a complete overview of gameplay statistics for this year.
On their official Twitter account, Valve announced that the ability to check your gaming data is now available through a service called Steam Replay :
"We've almost made it to the end of the year! Want to see an overview of your time spent on Steam? Introducing Steam Replay, with your top played games and milestones on Steam this year! All that and more (be sure you're logged in)"
Steam Replay shows Steam users every bit of information regarding their gameplay, like the most played games, the number of games played in general, and the most used input device, whether it is a mouse and keyboard, a gamepad, or even a steering wheel. You can also see which genres you enjoyed and whether you prefer playing newer or older games. There is also an option that displays the number of days you have played games continuously.
Steam Replay takes data from your Steam profile for the period from January 1 to December 14, 2022.
It is important to point out that these data do not cover playing in offline mode; hence, their accuracy seems very questionable, knowing how many people like to play games in offline mode to avoid certain online problems.

Steam users were angry with Valve for years due to a lack of interest in changing anything on their outdated launcher, but after the rise in popularity of Epic Game Launcher among PC gamers, it seems Valve have been forced to start improving their client. These new Steam features, as well as many others they've added earlier, are a very welcome change.
