Latest Steam Update
« 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 ...
"you are the rule maker, the dictator, the mini- Stalin, Mao, Hitler, the emperor, generalissimo, the MAN. You may talk the talk and appear to be quite easy going to foster popularity, but to the MAN I say F*CK YOU." And Steve G is F******g rude ? Just another day on the BF forum ... one demented idiots reaction to BF disagreeing about the thickness of the armour on a Tiger II turret mantlet.

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 ...

https://leftronic.com/blog/steam-statistics/

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  :-"
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.
