See how much time you spent on Switch this year by viewing your EOY stats

Seeing how much time you put into your Switch this year is both a great source of pride…but maybe even a little embarrassing? Nah, it’s super cool.

This year hasn’t been the greatest, as we all know. One thing’s for sure, since we’ve been stuck inside this year more people have played video games than normal. I mean, I know for a fact that I’ve put more time into the best Nintendo Switch games than I usually do. Seeing just how many hours total I spent on the Switch, how many games I’ve played this year, and my most active days both filled me with pride. Curious to see what your end of the year Switch stats are? Here’s how to look them up.

My personal end of year Switch stats

It’s always surprising for me to see my end of the year Nintendo Switch stats, but this year just takes the cake. Keep in mind that, I do report on Nintendo Switch for a living, this year forced me to stay inside more than usual, and I definitely spent a large chunk of the year working on Animal Crossing: New Horizons guides so my stats are a lot higher than the average player in 2020.

According to Nintendo’s year in review, I’ve spent over 693 hours playing 47 different Switch games in 2020. And apparently I played me Switch the most in April, right when Animal Crossing was seriously becoming a phenomenon.
