Nearly Forty Per Cent of Registered Steam Games Are Not Played

A study by Ars Technica was released concerning how long the average user plays his or her registered Steam games. These statistics included how long games are played, which game is the most popular, and how many games in a user's library are completely ignored.

The first discovery, as hinted earlier, was that 36.9 per cent of registered games are never played. Also, 17 per cent of the games are only played for less than one hour, followed by 24.6 per cent being played between one and ten hours. As for most downloaded and played titles, DOTA2 is the most owned game at over 25 million installs, while Football Manager 2014 is the most played game followed by Farm Simulator 2013 and Mount & Blade: Warband. One final reveal was that half of the 18.5 billion hours of Steam gaming comes from DOTA 2, Team Fortress 2, Counter Strike: Source, Counter Strike, Civilization 5, and Elder Scrolls: Skyrim.

So what does your Steam library look like? Is it a never-ending backlog full of great and not-so-great games or have you been able to resist the temptation of the Steam sales. Let us know your thoughts (and backlog) in the comments below.
