News Comments > 37% of Steam Games Never Loaded by Owners
47. Re: 37% of Steam Games Never Loaded by Owners Apr 16, 2014, 13:54 Primalchrome
 
Sounds like a reasonable number to me. I've bought a number of games as bundles and not played them all. Then there are those that appear on sale for <$5 and I figure,"How can you go wrong at that price?" Then I play them when/if I hit a lull.

Bioshock 1, 2, and Infinite for $15. Finished 1 and Infinite...haven't touched 2. There's a 33%'er right there.

Same as all the millions of assholes who bought Kinects for the the Xbox which all now sit gathering dust.
But there is the key....they bought it. And by doing so funded gen 2.

Don't get me wrong, I agree with you about the cumbersome aspect (which has hampered 3D television adoption). But I think we're on the brink of seeing a lightweight version that will have both recreational as well as professional application. This isn't that VR rig we strapped on in the mall after seeing Lawnmower Man on opening night...

No, it's not going to be like Case slapping on a set of 'trodes and hanging with Dixie Flatline in the Matrix. But for the first time we're seeing a product that has the potential to make the leap.

Then again...I haven't yet put my money where my mouth is....you don't see any of old man Primalchrome's hard earned cash in their kickstarter.

.. I just don't understand why Oculus did.
For the money. Right now they see it as funding the Rift they've dreamed of building. The dollar signs are clouding their view of the shackles they just attached to their ankles.

Can you really see your average household family of four sitting around the dinner table wearing these cumbersome things on their heads?
Someone said that about raising sheep in Farmville as well.... I also remember people saying texting was a Japanese fad...

People purchased items for an -alpha-? Sheesh...
They bought items, early access, and the ability to template the accomplishments that they have achieved in Alpha...Closed Beta...and Live. All of which are genuinely valuable since you can carry them along as the game transitions toward live.

So yes, you are correct...but your derision is a bit off base.

...are some of you serious? $19 is a deal breaker for you for access to one of the top engines on the market? I'd say that you're in the wrong industry/hobby if that is the case. Is it also going to be too much to buy the extra hard drive and spend the time to set up something really simple like a CVS repository?

The inclusion of the AH was an attempt at dealing with these problems from D2.
Your naivete is very cute.

As is your idiocy. The AH was Blizz's answer to getting people away from dealing with shady 3rd party sites selling gold an items. They wanted a piece of that, hard to fault them for it.
My idiocy.... They put up the auction house to create a new recurring revenue stream from D3. It was put up for profit...not to fix anything. Do not try to attribute altruism to something obviously motivated by greed. Look, you're a Blizzard fanboi, I get that....but if you want people to believe you're offering logical arguments, don't let the BlizzLove bleed through quite o clearly.

Gee, another 16 bit "retro" game. Sigh. Please, just stop. We had to play them back then. We didn't have a choice. Why would you want to drive a Model-T when you can zoom around in a McLaren F1?
Not sure if you meant this to be humorous or not...since the McLarens were built in the early mid-nineties which is relatively close to the same time you saw a lot of the 'retro' games you're talking about.

Why would you want to drive a McLaren F1 when you could own and drive 10 Ariel Atoms for the same price?

I have not been paid to say that Titanfall is the best FPS that has ever been made

I 100% agree.
This is HIGH praise. Which makes me very skeptical of comments like this being made about a product still in beta. Best FPS ever made...mmmmmmm.....

For someone who mentioned a more Dungeon Keeper like experience, look to Dungeon Forge (still in Kickstarter, and it appears they can use your love) - which is another that looks quite full of potential for me.
I really like the look of this. It reminds me of Neverwinter Nights and the toolset that came with it (moreso than Dungeon Keeper). I'm always very hesitant to put down money on Kickstarters, but Dungeon Forge might very well merit my hard earned dollars....

Cutter wrote on Feb 7, 2014, 14:55:
most people will never even get the chance to experience it?
That is a non-factor. Has nothing to do with the quality of the game and by that reasoning, PC games would be eliminated for being platform exclusive.
Cutter wrote on Feb 7, 2014, 14:55:
And D3? Cereal? This is why award shows are bunk and no one takes them seriously.
That's probably the best example of a stinker winning. That should have gone to DOTA2, hands down.

The Last of Us winning for "Most Innovative" is a start...

That's a great game but it's a zombie-themed action-adventure game, there's nothing innovative about it other than the fact an action game is well written.
Whereas I agree in that Papers Please should have taken the Innovative category, I disagree that there was nothing innovative about tLoU. It was more than just a zombie-themed game in the same way that HalfLife was more than just another demons from hell shooter.

There were a few of the awards I think should have gone to other nominees, but on the whole I didn't think it was filled with bad choices.

Ugh...I really need to go back and play Dark Souls. I bought it on Steam when it was on sale...kind of on a lark. Heard a mixture of horror stories and awe from some friends and put it on a back burner.

Ahh yes...the good old DOS days. Buy Dark Sun: Shattered Lands for $60+ from EB...then realize you couldn't finish due to a bug. I think after talking to SSI's support it only took 4-6 weeks for them to ship me the floppy with the patch on it.

Wait...is this Blues? Where are all the "GABE IZ TEH ANTIKRIST! STEAM IZ TEH 3VIL! DRM!!!" posts?

That being said...I'm tempted to buy one for the living room just to replace the laptop that I have hooked up to play games in Big Picture Mode.
