Well, well, well, if it isn’t the end of January. And that means it’s the perfect time to look at some of the GOG numbers that we (and you!) have managed to achieve in 2022!

While we already started the year on a high note with the ongoing New Year Sale, which gathers more than 3200 titles on discounts as high as -95%, we would also like to look back and marvel at the infographics specially prepared for that occasion. Why? Well, because we are quite proud of what they present and because they give us an idea of just how awesome our community is!

So, how many games have we released? Which were the best-sellers? How long have you spent playing in GOG GALAXY? How many achievements have you managed to get? What was the Meme of the Year? The answers to those and more questions are here, let’s take a look!

That’s right, when it comes to the arrivals on GOG we’ve released 684 games! And that’s not counting the various packs, bundles, special editions and DLCs. But we won’t stop there, with our love for games, we’ll try to push those numbers even higher!

As you can also see, the best-selling 2022 releases include Songs of Conquest, ELEX II and Old World (not a surprise here, all of them are excellent titles). With classic bestsellers The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition takes the cake alongside Alien: Isolation and The Wheel of Time. We are incredibly glad you’ve enjoyed them so much!

There are no greater gaming enthusiasts than you! With more than 137 million hours of gameplay in GOG GALAXY you really showed us that. Let’s combine that with over 264 PETABYTES (yeah, that’s a lot) of data downloaded through GOG GALAXY and you really deserve the loudest round of applause. The best part is, knowing how amazing you all are, bumping those numbers in 2023 is not even a question!

Nearly 50 000 unique achievements unlocked – now that’s also a really impressive performance from you! But some of course were harder to get than others. The “I choose you” achievement from Project Hospital and “Monster snack” from Railway Empire were the rarest of them all with only 0.01% of players able to get them in 2022. Do you think that can change? In our opinion, easily. But we would need proof from you!

We also didn’t slack when it comes to our Twitch Channel, where we spent over 2650 hours playing awesome games, having fun and just chatting with the viewers. We’ll continue to do that this year, so make sure to leave a follow and huge thanks to everyone who tuned in during 2022!

Alright, the last one is all about the GOG community. We won’t lie, it’s ridiculously fun to try and spoil you a little while sharing our mutual passion for games. That’s why in 2022 we’ve had 26 giveaways during various awesome events and 49 community contests, in which we always try to give you a chance of winning super cool prizes! And don’t worry, we’ll do our best to do even better on that front as well.

Now, our Meme of the Year really knocked it out of the park. It gathered almost 12000 likes on Twitter with 828000 views and almost 3000 likes on Facebook. But with being as relatable as it is, that’s no surprise. Blessed be The Witcher 3 Next-Gen Update and blessed be the Castle Village signpost – finally it’s real!

So there you have it, GOG infographics of 2022. We are incredibly happy with what we’ve managed to achieve with all of you so thank you for being with us and making the previous year so special. We are also absolutely sure that 2023 will be even better with all those numbers skyrocketing!

In fact, with the awesome New Year Sale and NSFW Week, which are both live and last until January 30th, 11 PM UTC, you can already start doing that while saving big on great titles. Make sure to check them out and have an excellent year!
wolfsite: So what is up for 2023?

My hopes.

Better Linux Support.

Updating all offline installers.

Doom 2016 or Fallout 4.

Releasing more classic games including ones that have been made free by the publishers.

More communication with the community.

Working harder on publishers that have stopped releasing games here like EA and Ubisoft.

Getting Sony to release classic games in there back catalog like Lemmings.
> More communication with the community.

Keep dreaming, they haven't addressed ANY of the problem people have been having with them in at least 5 years
Do the charts in the pictures make any sense? Ore are they just there, because they look good?
wolfsite: Updating all offline installers.
Highlighting this for importance.

Though I certainly agree with the others mentioned, especially getting more from EA and Ubi (of course there's only so much GOG can do; personally I wouldn't mind if GOG put links to "buy EA Play via Galaxy" on EA game pages - like it is on Steam - if we at least got DRM-free installers too and got even older missing games like Crysis 2 and Dragon Age 2 (and we still don't have Hi-Octane or Powermonger), but I understand some very much disagree).

I do applaud GOG for giving people back their Wolf3D content that went missing.
I had no idea The wheel of time was so Popular.
Syphon72: I had no idea The wheel of time was so Popular.
CHASM: The Rift could have likely been right up there too .... except the price likely prevented that.

As I have said elsewhere, I thought 2022 was a pretty good year for GOG, and I certainly continued to buy plenty of games from them, and very few if any were anime style or soft porn (erotica).

Anyway, BIG THANKS to GOG, especially for restoring Wolfenstein: Spear Of Destiny and it's lost mission packs.

Keep up the good work, and hopefully you will impress us even more this year. :)
Well, the rest of it is meaningless for me, but the first part is interesting.
So an in dev title is the overall bestseller of the year? That's darn surprising.
Or, actually, are the general and classic bestsellers mutually exclusive, so general should actually be labeled newer and we're not really told which sold more?
And yeah, with Dohi64 here, those releases should have been detailed more.
I'd be curious to know how well Shadow of Mordor sold. If not in the Top 10 maybe Top 20?
Love you guys. I{d choose you over my steam account if I had to.
Cavalary: So an in dev title is the overall bestseller of the year? That's darn surprising.
*looks at how often HoMM3 is in the top ten bestseller list* No, Not really. ;)

That said, I very much assume the general and classic bestsellers listed are exclusive from one another.
i got 100% in horizon zero dawn just last week. took a while. had to rush new game plus at uh as dont have time to play it second time in full!
Congrats GOG. Very nice stats there. Just keep the DRM-free focus (with offline installers) and new releases coming, and we'll most likely see a prosperous 2023 as well.
I know that i am a bit old but since when do people care about ''achievelents''? I'd understand it if we were talking about the leaderboards you could get in old arcade games but ''achievements'' are not that. Seriously people. What is wrong with you?
Screamshield: What is wrong with you?
Some people need to be told how to have fun. Sad indeed.
tfishell: I'd be curious to know how well Shadow of Mordor sold. If not in the Top 10 maybe Top 20?
Yep, me too.

In fact I would like to know the numbers sold each year for each game, as would many I am sure. I guess we are never gonna get that.

Then there are the free extras we got, especially Quake Enhanced. I am guessing everyone who owns Quake at GOG, downloaded that version. There were several other games in a somewhat similar situation, such as Mafia, and Saint's Row IV and Witcher 3, etc ... though they did not have the frustrating delay and lack of ongoing feedback regarding Quake Enhanced, which appeared to be a promise broken etc, but thankfully wasn't.

Well, a big title like Skyrim could go unnoticed. I just wonder how the sales compare to other platforms, taking in account the length of availibility in GOG.
