    Nice survey.

    How many games owned on PC..... over the years I wouldn't have a clue what the total count would be :p. Does my Atari 800 and Pacman cartridge count?
    Wish they just put bracketed value instead of exact. Doubt many know exactly how many games they own unless it's a small number.

    Hmmm, I should just put my Steam account ID in the survey info and tell them to check my library... Having over 80 titles listed there should count in the "pro" column for beta testing... Or it might convince them that I have a problem and should not be encouraged... Doh!
