This things broken. It's not counting the game at time of purchase and it's not counting DLC.

From my Steam Expenses Folder, I can tell you that I spent 5,054.56$ in the past 8 years I've had my account.

The former is by design.

Bzzzt. Wrong answer. Meaningful valuations have no business in the thread. Get out.

52 games, $719.49

According to the playtime calculator, though, it says I own 68 games and that I've only played 42 of them. Total playtime is 842.9 hours.

I'm pretty sure several of those games are DLCs, and it's possible that calculator can never mark a DLC as "played." On top of that, there are probably a few games I played long ago and their stats didn't get recorded. Steam hasn't always recorded stats, right? It might not have that I've played Lost Coast considering I've never reinstalled it after initially playing it years ago.

EDIT: Yep, just scrolled down and looked at the list of unplayed games. Half Life episodes (which I last played several years ago when they were fairly new) and DLC dominate the list, even DLCs for games that I've played regularly.

Found 241 Games with a value of $3424.60 USD.

Nearly all of that is from sales or bundles, so the true cost was probably more like $350. They should combine this site with a steam deal tracker and also give an estimate of what the cheapest possible cost for your games is.

Don't know if it takes into account sales, though. Most of the stuff I've bought was virtually free at the time.

Sez it can't find my profile even tho I can type the URL in and view it. Oh well, the main problem with my Steam account is that I still haven't played about 75% of the games I own.

Player [] owns 99 game(s) on Steam, of which he/she has played 48. That means he/she has not played 51 of them.

His/her playtime is 617 hours, or 25.7 days, or 3.7 weeks.

Pretty interesting. More playtime than I would have thought. Some of the "not played" games are pretty silly. I'm so sad I haven't played the German 3 sprite pack yet.. Or CS:S beta.

Pricing is pretty useless though, since it's just using current price. Napoleon Total war is listed as $40? I got it for $12 with all the other ones too.. lol

That calculator is bogus, it just lists retail prices, not the bargain prices that most people actually buy Steam games at. ;)

Found 39 Games with a value of $646.62 USD
I wonder who has the most "valuable" account (highest $ value with least number of games). Probably someone who buys COD every year. :awe:

89 games @ $1208.51.

I doubt I've spent even 50% of that amount. Outside of maybe 1-2 full price games a year, everything else is bought on at least a 50% sale.

It would require your account info to be able to find out at what price you purchased each game. So it's only option is to go off current selling price.

Haven't we gone over this already? What your Steam account is worth depends on what someone is willing to pay for it, and that Steamcalculator site doesn't calculate that value. It doesn't even show what you were willing pay for the games in your account. It's all total BS.
No need for this. This is just meant to be a fun thread. Don't like it, don't post in it if you have nothing of any Value in the thread to post.

Posts like this piss me off.



Now, Mine is worth about the same, just under $1000.00 (cut by 80% too in real value im sure)... and I bet I've only played 1/3 of my games so far
