r/gaming remains one of the biggest Reddit communities

Reddit is a consistently changing and thriving community to post and connect with like-minded people. Gaming is an industry and culture that has used websites and opportunities like Reddit to grow immensely in the last two decades.

Similar to the popular Spotify Wrapped posts you likely saw consume your timeline in late November, Reddit has a list of popular, growing, and most engaged communities and posts for 2023.

In Canada, r/amitheasshole, r/askreddit, and r/canada were at the top of the engagement list. This is not unlike other countries, such as the U.S., which have a similar list. According to Reddit’s statistics, ” r/gaming is the #4 most-subscribed community on Reddit globally, with an increase of 7.7M.”

Here’s a summary of some of the most significant communities within the gaming space for 2023:

  • With 38.6 million subscribers, r/gaming is the #4 most-subscribed community on Reddit globally, an increase of 7.7M.

  • r/BaldursGate3 became the #1 most-viewed community in the category with a whopping 1.03B views and #15 most viewed on Reddit.

  • r/leagueoflegends retained their spot as the #2 most viewed community in the category and #23 on the platform.

  •  r/diablo4 shattered records with a jaw-dropping 23,760% year-over-year (YoY) growth.

On top of that, Starfield was one of many “blockbuster titles (that) rocketed r/Starfield into Reddit’s top 50 communities.

As for 2024, the site predicts that the juggernaut news of GTA VI will be too much for the online communities to ignore, with the game seeping into various communities and becoming a “pop culture franchise.”
