2018 is over! If you’re only just finding this out, you’re late to the party. But it’s true. The year to end all years has gone at last.
In January of 2018 we showed you 2017 in review, and now it’s time to take a look back at 2018 and see what we’ve learned from our community and from running a gaming website.
We’ve crunched numbers, compiled data, and we’ve got loads of Green Man Gaming community information to share with you.
The categories are:
- Most Played Steam Game
- Top Five Most Popular Games
- Total Playtime
- Top 5 Most Popular Games by Country
- Top 10 Countries by Average Player Playtime

We used data gathered from our community of gamers to find out what they’re playing, what each country loves, and how much time gamers are putting into games. This means that the information below is unique in that it gives you an accurate look at 2018 in gaming trends.
But that’s enough about how we got the data, let’s take a look at the data itself. We present to you, 2018, a year in review:
And finally, let’s go to our Founder and CEO, Paul Sulyok, for a comment on 2018 and our community data: “Video games as a form of entertainment has truly come into their own with revenues 2.5 times that of the film industry and 6 times the size of digital music. Gamers are playing even more games than ever before and our community data shows this with an 88% increase in playtime year on year. Games developed in Edinburgh are played by gamers in London, Los Angeles and Lagos simultaneously and the range of games available today is at an all-time high.
We are truly living in the golden age of video game entertainment today and I can’t wait to see what 2019 will bring.”
