    Honestly, I've never given it much thought but, like many of you, I do have a ton of games I haven't had time to play. What about you? How far are you behind on your stack of unplayed games?

    Im not sure I want to see how long it will take me to beat all the games I own. Im already pretty much convinced that there are some games I own that I will not have time to play because of the rate that I keep buying new games. Maybe one day when im retired I will finally have time to enjoy all the games I own.

    I hope Steam is around when I retire so I can finish my games then. It's this damn day job that takes up so much of my time ...

    I think I need to stop buying games, 1578 hours, or I could watch the entirety of Star Trek, Twice.

    311 hrs to complete my unfinished games
    I logged over 4000 of hours played. http://www.wastedonsteam.com/usd/id/455olds

    I don't think those calculators are accurate. I have 400 hrs on san andreas that didn't show up but it shows on my steam page.

    Nah, I'm an amateur, only 76 hours. I don't have a lot of steam games, I guess it doesn't count games you have already beat, a few GTA games probably take up the lions share of that, got a couple other RTS games that I'm not sure how it computes "time to finish"... either way took me almost as much time to find out what the hell my steamID was as it took to find out how much time it would take to finish

    It would take me 6608 continuous hours (275 days,8 hours,24 minutes).

    I'm not surprised, since I haven't been playing games for quite a while.... thus the low interest in Steam sales.

    This thread makes me feel so muhc better now about my backlog:
    only 2282 continuous hours. Oddly enough that's only 10 hours per game on average.

    What is the average amount of hours required to beat the average game? I realize defining "average" could be controversial. If we say 20 hours for 50 games, that'd be 1,000 hours.

    There are some games in there I would never play. So... it would take forever to complete it.

    No Surprise. I buy games but get less and less time to waste on them, so... Ever increasing backlog is created. If I do get time to game, it takes more time to decide what to play than is left to play it... :) Or I just play D3 and avoid steam altogether...
