I love video games. Like many gamers I have a ridiculous library that I’ve collected over the years. Also like many gamers, I have games that I haven’t even started yet (that are now years old). What else am I supposed to do during the Steam Summer/Winter sale?

Here’s a look at what I play (not a complete list) … bold items are the ones where I spent the most time. I’ll spare you the number of hours I’ve spent in many of these…let’s just say I haven’t regretted a single hour in most of them.
