Steam recently kicked off their Holiday sale and inevitably many of us will do little to resist the opportunity of adding a few titles to our collections. Some will prove to be good investments, providing hours of entertainment at a...

Once upon a time I was so desperate to recreate the golden age of Diablo II that I'd buy damn near anything Action-RPG with a birdseye view. At my lowest point, I preordered Darkspore for like 49.99€, and the game was the worst P.O.S. I barely ever played! It's still there, in my list of games, taunting me. If there was a I-preordered-Darkspore-and-now-I-hate-myself-support group, I'd be the president. :p

Most played... Mass Effect 2, at 186 Hours played.

how many times did you do the campaign to get so many hours?

My most played is CS 1.6. I've been playing it for way too many years. Just bought CS:GO a few weeks ago. It's ok, but not great.

I have 70 games on my Steam account and some I just bought to collect, others to play. Says I have 16 installed. (Just right-click on Library in Steam)
Far Cry 3 for $7 was a nice little holiday treat, once I finish Infinite (just started) I might give that a try.

Don't feel bad, I could have written your comment and it would have been me. I purchased the Dark Spore limited edition. I bought a game on Steam called Ben there Dan that, I can't figure our how to remove it from my Steam details so I don't see it.

I know you guys will probably think I'm weird, but the only game I've actually fully played through on steam was Alien vs Predator (2010). I've got a total of about 25 games in my library right now (I'm a late steam adopter) which includes Bioshock Infinite, Batman Arkham Asylum, Batman Arkham City, and just now Crysis and I haven't even played them yet. They're just sitting there in my library....DAMN YOU STEAM!

Seriously I should consider removing steam from my computer. I can't resist the deals, but I don't have enough time to play.

Most played: Mafia II with 130 hours. Least played: COD MW 2 & BO with 14 hours between the two. They were a total waste of money because I only played the single player campaign and managed to finish both within that time. Online multiplayer games just aren't my bag. That said, I only have 10 Steam games in my library. Steam is just not a very viable option for me or in my country.

A lot of people don't like multiplayer games (myslef included), there's nothing wrong with them, it's just that you don't always have a good connection (ISP, country, etc.). And then, if you like to wait to buy your games when they're on sale, most of the time the multiplayer community is practically non-existent by the time you get around to playing them.

I have no actual shame admitting anything. I've lately also gone back and played otherwise ignored games, so I would actually see if what from bundles was actually worthwhile.

Have I ever mentioned I don't have a life? Of course not! I don't like talking about it. Here is part of my confession.

Star Trek Online - 734 hrs on record

Divinity II - The Dragon Knight Saga - 499 hrs on record

The Lord of the Rings Online™ - 118 hrs on record

Divinity II: Developer's Cut - 50 hrs on record

Tomb Raider - 49 hrs on record

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North - 37 hrs on record
I have 9 in my library I haven't played, so I have no opinion on those. There is one I had before adding it to my Steam library. Dead Space controls seem so sluggish to me, making it unpleasant for me. I was hoping adding it through Steam would have corrected the issue. Playing Dead Space to me is about as annoying as adding pointer trails to a mouse. In the end you end up concentrating too much on movement, instead of actual game-play.
