For fun, the other day I booted up Steam and sorted my entire library of 172 titles to see which games I’ve played on that platform the most. I don’t think I would’ve been able to accurately guess, especially since I don’t mentally track games I load through Steam, Epic, or through their own clients. But I will say that Steam isn’t a platform I use on a daily basis — really, it’s only for certain games at certain times.
That said, here were my results:
Star Trek Online (300.8 hours): This makes sense, as I’ve used Steam to play STO as long as I can remember. 300 seems kind of low for how much I’ve done in that MMO, but it’s still my most-played game here.
Rimworld (202.5 hours): Now this was a surprise, as Rimworld is still kind of a new game to me. I don’t think I’ve had it for more than a couple years now, but it fast became a favorite. But really, over 200 hours? That knocked my socks off.
New World (51.5 hours): This is since launch, so you can judge me for whatever standards you like with this number. I think it shows a player who’s dipped into the early game several times and had a few runs here and there but nothing long-lasting.
RIFT (51.1 hours): This is mostly from my return to RIFT since the old Glyph client went kaput (at least for me). Ah RIFT, you deserved so much better.
Fallout 76 (51 hours): And good hours they were! Like New World, I tend to have short but intense runs at this game but not for extended durations.
Mass Effect 2 (45.7 hours): This represents my one and only full playthrough of what I consider to be the best game in the series. Maybe I started up a second game at some point, but I know I finished it a ways back.
Fallout 4 (41.2 hours): This made me laugh because I don’t really remember that much about Fallout 4 and don’t feel like I got that far in the game at all. I guess I must’ve, though!
Chrono Trigger (31 hours): I think this represents playing it through about twice, which sounds right.
Starbound (28.3 hours): OK, I think Steam is lying here. I don’t remember what this game is, nevermind getting it and playing it over 28 hours. I do have one post from 2013 about it, so I guess I must have?
Chrono Cross (23.8 hours): And there you have the official number of hours that it took before I got really bored with the slow storytelling pace and glitchy game performance.
Detroit Become Human (20.2 hours): A good game but a tad on the long side for an adventure title.
Wildermyth (20.2 hours): A few campaigns in those 20 hours with hopefully more to come!
