2022 year-in-review shows top games around the world, Nintendo coverage and social media reach
Nintendo took up some considerable mindshare this year
While there’s technically still 11 days left in 2022, I think we can call the year done-and-dusted. When it comes to gaming, just about every big-name game is out, and we have more than enough data to see who came out on top in a number of categories. Thanks to a new report from Games Industry, we can see just how well the Big N did in 2022.
Games Industry shared a number of stats on gaming in 2022 across various categories. Let’s start things off with the biggest boxed releases of 2022 in the UK, U.S. and Japan.
Following that, we have a look at the most covered games and companies from the gaming press.
Finally, we have a breakdown of the games that were talked about the most on Twitter, as well as the game trailers that made it in front of the most eyes.
There’s even more to break down in the full report from Games Industry, which you can find here.
I love pouring over this kind of data. Interesting to see the trends and changes over previous years and comparing demographics.
So Nintendo is the most discussed company, and it’s actually down from last year, yet no Nintendo games are among the most covered? How much of that is literally just the Mario Movie?
