You read about this survey of Steam game use by Ars Technica (sic)?

http://hexus.net/gaming/news/industry/68781-over-third-steam-games-bought-never-played/


I may have missed the criteria for that last chart, but DOTA 2 is not even on the list of most played games on Steam, and Farming Simulator 2011 *is*? >_>


"Median number of hours per owner"

That means that a lot of people have downloaded DOTA 2 (free games get downloaded a lot), but on average all those people have played it less than 20 hours. A lot of people hate DOTA after playing it only a few hours. Not as many people have bought Farming Simulator, but the people that do buy it have played it on average 23 hours.

Steam and I are in agreement that you have enough games already. No more sales until Winter. We'll be skipping the Summer sale this year.

Don't like it? Go to Origin lol lol lol


Too many games ... I do not under stand this notion.

Origin sales are much like Sirens tempting you away from the safety of your boat (Steam) and into the abyss.

Once you do that, you never come back. You may even kill yourself out of shame.

Don't kill yourself out of shame. Stay with Steam.

lol @ Origin Sales

"Dragon Age Origins": $5 - the last game Bioware made before they were completely dominated by their EA overlords and run into the ground!

"C&C Ultimate Collection": $10 - the only ones worth playing are the ones made by Westwood, before they were acquired by EA and the franchise was run into the ground!

"Sims 3": $10 for base, $10 for DLC packs - Spice up your **** life by pretending to be someone else! Get married to your childhood sweetheart who left you for a doctor/lawyer/CEO/anyone who turned out more successful than you, or invite them to your house, wait for them to go to the bathroom, then take away the door and all utilities and watch as they starve to death in a 4x4 room filled with their own **** and ****!

"Mass Effect Trilogy": $20 - Includes none of the DLC and we still charge full price!

Wish Steam got Mass Effect 3 before EA did the whole Origin exclusivity thing.

I'd rather play it on the Wii U.
