    I, uh, I have no clue how this happened, but 428 GB. This is also without about 22 games not installed.

    A couple hundred is all well and good, but this implies I seriously need to do some housecleaning in there.

    I should install EVERY GAME in my library to see what the deal is. I have 121 games on Steam, 60 installed. I'd be curious to see how this goes.

    Prime are you sure your hard drive would have enough space to install all your steam games?

    Then of course there's your GB download limit (If you have one) Downloading off Steam can get expensive even after purchases have been considered.

    112 games total, 60 games installed (on the laptop), 155GB in size.

    LOL, download limit... this is why I take my laptop to work, download my games there, back them up to an external hard drive then restore them on my desktop at home. Sure, it adds extra steps but it doesn't eat my stupid AT&T bandwidth cap and they download a lot faster when I'm maxing out the wifi at work as opposed to my 1.5Mbit/s connection at home.

    I pulled my entire library down in one month at home (was probably low 300 GB's at the time) and somehow didn't get capped by Comcast, still surprised about that one.

    I don't think their cap system works all that well... from what I've seen, they tend to only interfere with people that severely break the cap.

    Well, this is kinda OT, but I pull quite a few 4.3 GB ISOs down without capping (Comcast Xfinity is unlimited download).

    Well what I meant isn't exactly a hard cap.

    I'm running on Rogers atm (120GB download limit) after which they charge me extra by the GB.

    There's a small company out in Mississauga that charges about $10 less than my current plan and has an unlimited number of GB and is about 10-20% faster than my rogers plan.

    Once I upgrade to that I'm downloading everything in sight.

    I have to regularly uninstall Steam stuff to keep my compy from bogging down. It's not a HUEG hard-drive... I reserve that for file backups.
    I'd totally test out the install-everything-to-see-how-much-crap-there-is, especially since I'd like to go through and make local backups of everything, but the interface for installing stuff on Steam is kinda balls. That one-game-at-a-time-and-takes-forever-to-finish-setting-up-all-the-things-for-the-download-to-begin-before-you-can-start-the-next-one-and-OHBYTHEWAY-YOU-CAN'T-CANCEL-SOMETHING-ONCE-YOU-START-IT design I find a bit lacking.

    I'm out of town right now, but last time I checked during the sale it was somewhere north of 730GB. The last two days' purchases weren't in that total though. I'll have a more accurate number in a day or so.

    16 total, of which I purchased 5 (PvZ, Portal 2, Worms Reloaded, Alice 2, HL2:E2).

    I still haven't played Alice 2. :(
