Steam hours played all of a sudden extremely innaccurate.

At some point within the last few days or so, it seems like my Steam hours went crazy.

Just one example, one game the I've played for 2 or 3 hours says I have 60 hours played. It seems to have screwed up like this for a bunch of my games.

I want to move to a nice, quaint house in the suburbs with the T-Mobile girl and make lots of babies with her.

This sometimes happens, Steam will fix the database eventually.

Yeah I noticed it too, but it's no big deal to me at all.

It's adding the time since you last restarted the client.

The time on your Community Profile is still accurate.


This is at least the third topic in the last week.

Beta client update for today apparently fixed the issue.

Been happening to me a lot of late, but it always fixes itself.

Not exactly "in the last week" but there were two previous topics about this exact thing very recently.

From most recent to oldest
http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/916373-pc/67560493
(4 days ago)
http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/916373-pc/67470499
(12 days ago)
http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/916373-pc/67418818
(18 days ago)

So this is the 4th topic about this in the last 18 days.

Edit: apparently that last one is slightly different. He was complaining that his play times were reset, not mysteriously extended... so make it "the 3rd topic in the last 12 days" instead
