I had a moment this week, while adding a few more games to my expanding library and started wondering, when or if I will ever play them all. There are games I am adding to my library that I may never play. Games I paid for, but may just sit there on the digital shelf forever, remaining unplayed while I carry on playing the same games I always do.
What this means is that I’ve become a collector. A collector of games. Someone who will at times find more enjoyment in buying a game and adding it to my library than I actually have in playing it! Madness!
So what do you collect? How big is your collection?
Here’s a snap shot of how many games I have collected - whether I bought them retail, on Steam, in a bundle or got freebies. There are some overlaps too between launchers.
Steam: 816 games
GOG: 124 games (about half are copies of my Steam games, redeemed through GOG Connect)
Uplay: 27 games
Origin: 36 games
Epic Games Launcher: 19 games
Twitch: 101 games
Battle Net: 4 games
Box Copies: About 20-30 games still stored somewhere
Humble Trove: 58 games installers sitting there for future use
