...with yourself? Curse you, character limit!

I don't know why, but once Steam said I owned about 120 games, I thought "Oh god, this has gotten out of hand, I feel sorta gross. Maybe I'll finish playing all of these games when I'm 40." Though sometimes I feel a bit better about myself when I see somebody else who owns like 600 Steam games.

Do you have a point where you took a good hard look at your list of Steam games, mumbling "Oh god, what have I done?" Or do you feel no shame at your enormous digital library of games that you likely can't possibly have the time to play?

Maybe When it was around 98, with 2 or 3 games finished.

Well, I have 125 games and I really only use it to play CS (which I hardly play anymore), it did take me almost 9 years to get to that amount though. Since most of these games have gone unplayed, I guess I should feel disgusted.

I own about 75 games and haven't played most of them. So sometimes I do feel like it was a big waste.

Probably when I hit 100. It didn't stop me from buying games, but what I have bought lately has been dirt cheap. The last game on Steam I paid full price for was Portal 2 nearly a year ago.

I felt like I was kinda weird when I had over 300 physical copies of games. The games I have on steam were long after that (I have around 150 or something on steam). 
 
Seriously I have so many games I started putting games I don't like, or don't intend to ever play again in the closet. I cant sell em 'cus that feels weird to me, but I don't know what I want to do with them yet. Maybe I'll give em away or something. 
 
And to be clear, these aren't necessarily "bad" games. I have a soft spot for things that are bad if I can get something out of it. These are games I just don't like (to be fair, though, some are really bad like Driv3r for PS2 is in there for example) and have no intent on playing ever again. 
 
Anyway, ya... I have a lot of games in general. The ones I got on steam were so cheap I might as well have gotten them free. People always see how many I have on steam, though, and are like "Damn, dude, why you got so many games" haha. Oh then I have to show them all the physical copy games I have...

It's a vicious thing.

I feel guilty every time I look at my list of 80 odd games. That puts me off actually wanting to even look at them.

My guilt at not playing them is part of the reason I'm not playing them.

I have 141 Steam games, I have no idea how though, I have barely bought any myself. Most are probably from the Humble Indie Bundles and I also got the complete Valve pack for free.

I have over 130. No idea how it got that crazy, but I imagine those Indie Bundles pile up after a while. There's also cases like buying the whole Sam & Max saga for a sawbuck in a recent sale, which is technically ~15 separate games according to Steam.

The only thing I feel disgusted at myself about is that I haven't got around to playing games that were gifted to me for one reason or another, and deserve (well, perhaps "deserve" is a bit too threatening a connotation in this case) a comic blog from me to reward (again, maybe not the right word) those kind people for their largesse. I'll get around to it when games like The Last Story and Mass Effect 3 aren't getting released every week, honest.

Same. My backlog is big enough that I am in no hurry to buy ANY game at full price. Portal 2 I preordered on Steam (so it was 10% off $50 USD), and that is the most I have ever paid for any Steam game. It was worth it to avoid spoilers. I didn't get a chance to finish it until like a week after it came out, but that was still soon enough that I didn't have to deal with the SPAAAAAACE, life gives you lemons, and "I'm a potato" memes

I'm a little horrified that I have 240 of them, but to be fair to myself, I buy up a lot of episodic adventure games that count as multiple games. With the exception of Jagged Alliance: BIA, I also never buy games unless they're steeply discounted or in packs, so I wind up with a lot of indie games I've bought for a buck.

229 here. Less disgusted with myself and more amazed that the number built up so quickly. I'm a sucker for Steam sales, particularly those bundle deals, so that's probably where most of them came from.

The sad part is I have scrolled through the list and been bummed that I can't find a game to play...

Does over 100 Xbox 360 games count? Because I only got a couple of Steam games in my bibliotheca, and only one that has been purchased directly through Steam digitally. I don't feel disgusted owning many games in general and I'm sure I would not feel disgusted having many games on Steam either.

Not disgusted with how many I own, more how many I haven't played. I have 118 games on steam that I haven't loaded up once.

Add the 50+ games I have for the Xbox 360 and PS3 that are still sealed and yeah, I'm maybe a little ashamed of that.

I brought around 60 before I decided enough was enough and that I should play them along with the tons of games on other platforms that I haven't completed.

I got over 300, I feel alright. I've played most of them and the ones that i have not came with a bundle where one game's value out set the rest of them.

Well, the worst part is not owning games (I "own" 144, but the way Steam gets that number is kinda stupid), it's going through the entire list and not finding a game I actually want to play at that moment.

I have about 25 games, and while there are already a couple of games on there I'll probably never get around to playing (either again, or at all) I don't feel particualry bad about owning any of them.

So long as I keep to the things I'm actually interested in playing the moment I buy it, I don't see that happening any time soon either. But then again, who knows? Let us all remain vigilant in keeping our Steam purchases moderate.

That's right about where I am, and about how I feel too. It is pretty weird that a person can have that many games and not feel like playing any of them, but I've definitely been there.

173 games on Steam... At least they are not taking space away like the few hundred boxed versions from various console generations in my living room. But no regrets at all, as this is probably my only guilty pleasure...
