When I buy things of of Steam I don't "buy them for myself", which would cause them to be added to my steam library. Instead I simply turn them into giftables which sit in my inventory. Only then if I want to actually play them do I activate them. This way when I buy a load of shit from a sale and later realise I don't want them I trade the games away and try and get something I do want.

And my wishlist is full of random crap I added purely so that steam would stop asking me about it.

I just unticked the "highlight for wishlist" option and now it's at least highlighting things on the front page that are already in my inventory.

That calculator isn't working for my profile right now (:(), but using that is for noobs. NO TRUE REAL HARDCORE ULTRA GAMER wouldn't not track their spending via a spreadsheet. (Thuogh I haven't updated it in a while... and LEGO Marvel isn't even on there!)

EDIT: AHA IT WORKS NOW

My Steam Profile (from SteamDB)


  • Worth: $4819.26
  • Games owned: 433
  • Games not played: 223 (52%)
  • Hours spent: 2,005.3h


I do not beat Zaphod :(

I don't think you can reasonably expect the service to deal with this situation. Well, you can, but you'll be disappointed; and rightly so.

8) I think you might just beat everyone there.

My Steam Profile (from SteamDB)

  • Worth: £1348.30
  • Games owned: 140
  • Games not played: 74 (53%)
  • Hours spent: 481.0h

Really quite suprised I've the amount I've not played is only 53%, I expected it to be a lot more.
And how can my Steam account be worth £1348.30? Is that including the normal steam price for things I got in bundles?

You scrolled past a big old itemised list of costs to get to the bit you copy and pasted.

Thank fuck we have Zaphod and Pod here. There's a reason why I stay the fuck away from my PC when there's a Steam sale on:

My Steam Profile (from SteamDB)

  • Worth: £2137.28
  • Games owned: 281
  • Games not played: 167 (59%)
  • Hours spent: 834.2h

It has options to do exactly this! It's just the programmers of it thought that something in your wishlist trumps something in your inventory, even though one of them represents "what I have" and one "what I want".

Looking at the "completed" thread I'm sure other people must easily rank up waaaaaaaay more gaming hours than I do, they simply don't do it via Steam :P Plus, I've had that account for a long time.... on the other hand, I've easily put bazillions of hours in games not on Steam (e.g. KSP).

Like Grim said, look at the list! But it's basically market price, not what you paid for.

I played Sleeping Dogs for about an hour and it seemed ok in a generic open world kinda way.
It didn't raise itself to the top of my play list though.

I've made about a fiver in trading card sales this week.
Admittedly i've spent about £60 in the sale so far, but that doesn't count...

I've spent bugger all on PC games in the past year, so this sale seems to have hit the sweet spot for me.

Dishonored and Civ 5 seem awesome deals, but I think they might kill my computer.

Thought I might as well get System Shock 2 to see what the fuss is about since it's a quid. Also purchased Tower of Guns, cause it looks facking insane, for a fiver.

Nothing for me out of the current sale, I usually log in at least to see what the daily deals are but I can't even be bothered with that.

I think you get to the point (like I have) where there are so many games in your Steam list that have never even been installed, let alone played, that buying anything else just seems stupid. Even if I can buy a million brilliant games for 99p, if I never play any of them, I've still wasted 99p and my list of unplayed games gets longer.

Plus I've racked up 60+ hours on the Wii U this month (mostly across just two games!), and then there's Hearthstone too of course. Steam and Origin aren't really getting much use at the moment.

I'm thinking about buying football manager but I'm afraid of what it can do to my life.

Championship manager 2 made me forget to eat.

I need to lose weight. This sounds like an acceptable dieting system.
