Title: Latest Steam Update
Post by: Zulu1966 on May 18, 2021, 10:46:01 AM
So I just noticed this in the latest Steam update release notes.

Fix a possible crash for users with around 25,000 or more games

WTF ? Jeez I though I had a problem.  even if you played one a day it would still take about 70 years to play through them. Love to know who reported that bug ...

Well, presumably it is all from sales and bundles.

Aren't most humble bumble collections giving out Steam keys?

Still impressive.

25,000 games. I didn't think 25,000 games existed! But if they did I bet they would all be in JH's possession.

So it drove me to look.

Some interesting steam stats here ...

Approx 32,000 games the largest account.

Even if I had so much money that it would be inconsequential to me, I couldn't possibly buy that many games.   I don't even know how you'd know which ones you had without looking at your account.

With my luck, I'd lose at all 32,000.  :-[

Account must have been a reviewer who automatically gets free games. It is pretty obvious that most reviewers never play the games they review, or play them very little, explaining how/why they would have so many.

Hah, I can't tell even with my -what- 150 games.

It's like my Instagram feed. I know I subscribed to that person some time ago for some reason, but now I have no clue who they are.

I've also heard that higher-up Steam employees, like Gabe Newell, automatically get everything on the Steam store for free.  So this might be a fix specifically for Steam royalty  :-"
