Anyone else's Steam game playtimes all ****ed up?

Like every game in my library that I've played even 15 minutes of say all kinds of wacky s*** for the playtime, like 31 hours and crap like that. Is this happening to anyone else?

It seems to have added 30 hours to a bunch of them...

Yes actually. I've noticed a lot of them show 10 hours more than I remember playing them for. While something like TF2, which I play frequently, is still accurate.

I'm much more annoyed by this than I should be.

I'm glad I'm not the only one though. I thought at first that it may have been caused by my PC's clock/calendar being off when I installed Windows a few days ago but it affected games that I haven't played in many months so...

I thought it was the custom skin I was using so I changed it. Seemed to work for some reason.

Although I was flattered that Steam thought I actually played half of my games for more than 15 minutes.

Just checked a few. Looks like I'm at +85 hours played on some games.

That's neat, I guess. Doesn't really bother me.

hmmm... It seems like every game that I've played is +4~ hours.

It looks like it's adding hours to each game for how much time has elapsed since the last time Steam was restarted. Restarting Steam resets every game to the amount of time that I've played them, an hour after restarting Steam, each game will have an hour added to playtime, etc. It also looks like if I play a game, it resets play time to what it should be.

Can't find any major discrepancies, neither in the client, nor the Steam community page.

Pretty sure I haven't played Amnesia for 65 hours...

All my play times have been bloated by a large degree.

Mine are messed up. They keep changing. One moment Dark Souls said 300 hours, the next, 297, then 293. Now it says 296.
