How I spent my time with video games in 2023

It's been a while since I put more than 100 hours into a game in a single year.

I likely would've accomplished that feat in 2023 if I hadn't dropped Pokémon Violet in favor of first World of Horror then Metro Quester in early December, but I can't say I'm sad I decided to change things up as I did.

Not only have I since returned to Pokémon Violet, but World of Horror and Metro Quester ended up being among my favorite games of the year, so I think the decision was a good one.

World of Horror

Also, I still put just over 80 hours into Pokémon Violet, my most-played game of 2023, so I hardly ignored it despite the temporary switcheroo.
  • Pokémon Violet -- 80 hours, 55 minutes
  • Labyrinth of Galleria: The Moon Society -- 60 hours, 45 minutes
  • Dragon Quest Treasures -- 35 hours, 35 minutes
  • Suika Game -- 24 hours, 50 minutes
  • Metro Quester -- 22 hours, 00 minutes
  • Loop8: Summer of Gods -- 16 hours, 50 minutes
  • Paranormasight: The Seven Mysteries of Honjo -- 16 hours, 40 minutes
Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars
  • Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars -- 14 hours, 20 minutes
  • World of Horror -- 8 hours, 40 minutes
  • Octopath Traveler II -- 4 hours, 20 minutes
  • Master Detective Archives: Rain Code -- 4 hours, 15 minutes
  • About An Elf  -- 3 hours, 20 minutes
  • Dragon Question Monsters: The Dark Prince -- 3 hours, 05 minutes
  • Uchu Shinshuchu -- 2 hours, 25 minutes
As you can see, Pokémon Violet was my most-played game of last year by a long way. I'm pretty impressed I was able to put more than 20 hours into both Suika Game and Metro Quester, though.

Which games did you put the most hours into last year? Let me know in the comments section of this post.
