Earlier today, Tumblr released its “2017 Year in Review,” highlighting the top trends of Tumblr’s young community. The entire review spanned across all things, including movies, TV, actors and actresses, music, and of course, video games.

You can check out the entire list of categories by heading over to Tumblr’s site, but we’ve collected the entire list for your viewing pleasure. As the list is simply what was the most popular games were for the year, you’ll find that a lot of the titles aren’t games that came out in 2017. Either way, it’s interesting to see the vast collection of the games, and you can find the entire list below:

  1. Overwatch
  2. Mystic Messenger
  3. Dream Daddy
  4. Persona 5
  5. Undertale
  6. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  7. The Sims 4
  8. Bendy and the Ink Machine
  9. Cuphead
  10. Final Fantasy XV
  11. Splatoon
  12. Mass Effect Andromeda
  13. League of Legends
  14. Kingdom Hearts
  15. Fire Emblem Heroes
  16. Pokemon Sun and Moon
  17. Night in the Woods

  25. Eldarya
  26. Stardew Valley
  27. Fallout 4
  28. Choices: Stories You Play
  29. My Candy Love
  30. Dark Souls

As you’ll note, the top three games on the list were probably easy to guess if you’ve ever been on Tumblr.  Overwatch continued its stretch of dominance and remained the top trending game for Tumblr all year. South Korean visual novel game Mystic Messenger and the indie darling Dream Daddy came in at the #2 and #3 spot, respectively, which isn’t too surprising given how popular the games were on Tumblr this year. Rounding out the list are older games, like Dark Souls and Animal Crossing: New Leaf, as well as some newer titles like Final Fantasy XV and Night in the Woods. All in all, it’s a fairly eclectic mix of titles and speaks to just how diverse Tumblr really is.
