So steams summer sale is over. I bought way too many games, and the long list of unplayed games got much longer. I think I can spend the next few years without buying new games, but thats never gonna happen:P
Currently I own 92 games on steam, and i fear that list will still be growing for each sale steam has.
 
How many games have you got on steam? Do you have the same problem as me with buying stuff you wont play alot, just because its so damn cheap?

Hmm, I didn't fall into that endless pit of buying games during that sale.  I only bought 3 games during the sale, (Beyond Good and Evil, Red Faction: Guerilla, and Trine).  Heh.  I have 10 games so far.  Currently, I'm playing the Witcher.  Good game.

i own.. 12 (off the top of my head) games on steam. they're mostly Counter Strike games (and the games that came with CS 1.6 and Source). i have two games gifted by giant bomb user Ossi :)  
 
i don't have credit card access, but if i did you'd be sure i would be broke cause i can't turn down a deal ; ;

I don't have a credit card or anything similar so I've only got about 15. And I bought those are hard copies. But even if I had a credit card and bout 90 games off Steam, it would be too much...but not enough...

I own 98 games on Steam, but a fair number are indie games or older games (like the X-Com pack I bought for just the first one)

Not particularly, because I don't see why people think these things are so damn cheap.  $10 or even $5 adds up.  I buy something if I want it, but I won't be buying multiple things at $10 if I don't think I'll play the game.  It's not like people on this forum are so rich that they already own everything they'd want to own for every platform either.  That money adds up.
 
So short answer, no I don't buy things just because they're cheap.

About six. I'm still hesitant about digital copies of games. There's just something about owning physical copies of games.

263. Steam for me is almost perfect. It has the convenience of consoles and the flexibility of PC gaming.

Around 150. A lot of those are obscure indies or ancient classics I bought for under $5 though - I'm a sucker for anything that costs about the same or less than a beer. As a result I've got lots of really terrible hobbyist-made games I can't be arsed to actually play, and a bunch of stuff I haven't touched my Steam copies of because I played them to death off floppy disks back in the day. I think my average 'time played' per game is around 3-4 hours, and that's including 600+ hours of TF2. 
 
Still, it's better than having a house full of boxes and digging around the stacks trying to find CD 2 for Morrowind again.

44 games. Most of them are cheap 10 games for 5 bucks things.

#24 Posted by Cubic (171 posts) -

93. Mostly indie games, adventure games and RPGs. 
By my count I've only finished 20 (although a lot of the games I own aren't necessarily games that end). I guess I can live with 21.5%.

Exactly 50.

#35 Posted by s10129107 (1183 posts) -

Far more than my hard drive could possibly contain.

#36 Posted by litrock (173 posts) -

The Steam calculator says 110.  I thought it was more.  Huh, better get shopping.  
 
No, not really. I have more games than I know what to do with after the summer sale.

#37 Posted by MancombSeepgood (335 posts) -

Only fifty-two games, I've only recently started using Steam... Totalling $852 apparently.

#38 Posted by Sadisticham (278 posts) -

i dont feel bad about my 100 games anymore, thanks giantbomb community for showing me that im not crazy, well maybe a little, but not about vidja games

#43 Posted by Chaser324 (6555 posts) -

Well, there are 63 things listed in my library, but it's not really 63 different games. A lot of those are multiple episodes of TellTale adventure games and there are quite a few of them that are expansion packs.

I have 29 games worth 473.71.  
 
But then they also said Half-Life 2: Lost Cost was worth $100. So who knows how accurate it is.

I only bought 2 games from the Steam Summer Sale and that was Uplink and Defcon. So now I have 50 games.
