How big is your steam library?

@warxsnake: Around 70 games and I have only beat Half Life 2, Half Life 2 episode 1, and the Tales of Monkey Island episodes. Thinking about the money I spent on there makes me sad and I am still going out and buying new console games. I need to start knocking out the games in library.

78.  And I now refuse to buy a PC game at brick and mortar.  If it ain't on Steam or Impulse I'm not getting it.  Or the Blizzard store I guess. (looking at you Starcraft 2)

#54 Posted by Mitch0712 (470 posts) -

138 games, including whatever steam counts as my games like the free ones

#55 Posted by dragonzord (815 posts) -

125. i've probably beaten 5% of those.

Worst purchase for the money: Star Trek Online ($60, ugh)

#57 Posted by Khalen (98 posts) -

111 Nice number :)
I bought most games when they were "cheap". Hardly buy games for full price (cause most of the times the stores are 10,- cheaper).

My Gog.com library is bigger than my Steam library sadly.  Gog has 4 games, Steam has 3.  My computer sucks.   Hell even the last Gog.com game I bought can't run on my system.

Not including all the Valve stuff, and I mean I have it all, like 6 games.  I am not a huge fan of digital distribution, mostly because of DRM issues and having to make sure you are online.  And for those 6 games I have bought, they were all Steam deals.  I didn't buy one at full price.

Just Tochlight, and I wouldn't even have that if it weren't on sale for $5 back in December.

I've got a whopping 9 games on Steam, excluding demos.  I buy games that are on super-sales that I've been thinking I wanted to buy anyway, or games that manage to be cheap without being on sale.  I think I originally installed it with Portal, and my first purchase was Peggle after I saw it was the cheapest way to get the game after I saw a friend playing it (it looked fun -- and it's pretty fun for something so simple).  

From there, the Steam sales sometimes catch my eye, or I'll find a demo that's so fun I keep going back to it until I decide to just buy the darned game.


I'm not very comfortable with "Digital Distribution".  I don't like using my credit cards online, and I dislike any service that I feel could potentially sever me from my games.  If I spend good money on my game, I don't think anyone should be able to take it away from me (disallowing me from using a public multiplayer feature is a little different than disallowing me to play at all).  I'm uncomfortable with the prospect of somehow being banned.

Eh, I don't have that much on Steam. 
 
I'd say I have around or slightly over 20 full games on it... 
 
The vast majority of my steam catalog is a few demos and TONS of single-player half-life 2 mods my brother has downloaded.

#64 Posted by Aronman789 (2676 posts) -

I only have 29 games, Portal from when it was free that one time, and the QuakeCon pack

17? I really don't spend much time on Steam honestly. Plus until recently, I couldn't run too much on my PC, so my options were really limited.

#67 Posted by PS3RG (424 posts) -

KOTOR and Deus Ex. REALLLLLLY thinking hard about Civ 4.....

#71 Posted by Robitt (350 posts) -

50. I thought I had more. But like many others in this thread I mainly buy of those crazy sales.

#72 Posted by Chandu83 (222 posts) -
I have about 30 games I think...not very sure. The reason I buy games on steam is because of those deals! They are evil!
#73 Posted by jorbear (2517 posts) -

45. My most recent purchase was Fallout 3: GOTY, just for the DLC.

" 124 according to my community page. I love it. Steam is solely responsible for my current PC gaming habits.  Not sure why my Civ 4 and expansions show up twice. I hope I didn't buy that pack twice... (edit: one is http://store.steampowered.com/app/3900/ and the other is http://store.steampowered.com/app/34440/ that forwards to 3900. weird.) "
Mine is 113 (counting the Civ clones. whatever that is. 
 
Also, yes, if it was not for Blizzard games or Steam (or Impulse for Sins of a Solar Empire) I wouldn't play a damn thing on my PC. Steam is totally awesome. In a device that has virtually unlimited space (I can add another hard drive super easy) digital distribution makes all the sense in the world. On my xbox, PS3, or PSP or whatever, I don't like it as much since I would have to delete stuff at some point. Steam also makes it super easy to get games back if you delete them. Unlike other services.

55. I only buy them when they're on sale :P

#76 Posted by ESWAT (54 posts) -

Steam Community says 135, though I noticed some doubles because of Steam Play. Maybe 125?

Yeesh, I thought I had a ton.
#80 Posted by IrishDevil (36 posts) -

I think i have around 15 all of them have been bought off sales which they seem to have a lot of.
#81 Posted by SSully (4185 posts) -

80! I wish every form of Digital Distribution was like steam, its convenient, has great sales, and having everything tied to your account is excellent.  

#82 Posted by Butano (1738 posts) -

166 currently, probably will be more by next weekend after another crazy sale.

#83 Posted by TomA (2531 posts) -

50 something

#84 Posted by Noodles (539 posts) -

97. The funny thing is that I hate PC gaming (with a few exceptions, WoW and Starcraft being the biggest of them).

#85 Posted by MajorToms (366 posts) -

I have 50 games on Steam, according to my profile. I have more PC games that are disc or download from other locations that aren't recognized by Steam as owned. Like World of Goo <3

#86 Posted by ShaunassNZ (2128 posts) -

73, not much.

#87 Posted by Djeffers03 (2545 posts) -

LIke 4. And Im not even sure they work on mac.

#88 Posted by zudthespud (3281 posts) -

I still prefer buying boxed games, but Steam sales are irresistible. I have 6.

#89 Posted by MikkaQ (10288 posts) -

Only been using steam for a couple months, other than borrowing accounts for Half-Life and stuff. But due to sales, I already have a couple dozen games. Like... 4 of which I ever really play.

So what happened?
#91 Posted by Toms115 (2316 posts) -

saw an earlier post do this so i thought i'd do it too.

 
#92 Posted by Mr_eX (16 posts) -

I have 42 games on Steam. Last one I bought was Singularity.

#93 Posted by EvilMuffin (133 posts) -

82, but I have a lot of PC games that I wish I had bought through Steam...

#94 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2219 posts) -

17 games at the moment. Usually I get retail games and some of them like unreal tournament 3 and Warhammer: Dawn of War 2 can also be added to my steam games. Steam's a good service though so I'll definately be buying more steam games.

" None.  Boxed games ftw! "
That's fine and all, if you have the shelfspace for it(especially those xbox-huge old games), but if you're like me and don't care to be a packrat(let's face it, you crack your game and put the disc away somewhere) 
it doesn't matter

@ahaisthisourchance: 
For me it has collector value, it's part of being a gamer for me.
But I can understand your viewpoint!.

Closing in on 300 games redeemed through Steam.

I run about 100 non-Steam games through Steam on top of that.
