    # Master of Olympus: Zeus
    # Sacrifice
    # Ground Control + expansion

    You must be joking. I am willing to bet that most people here have at least twice that number of games.

    Twice? How about 3 times as many? It's taken 6 years to amass my collection.

    I’ve been buying games for the last 6 years. I’m guessing that I have probably 20-30 games in total (I get about 4-5 games per year). Deciding which game to play isn’t usually a problem for me; typically I’ll play a game once, then go on to the next one. Most of the games I have are FPS; I find they don’t offer much replay value (despite what various reviews might say), and I never play online. In fact, the only games I can recall playing more than once are Diablo (several times), Diablo 2 (1½ times; got bored after that), System Shock 2 (twice), and BG2 (several times, with no end in sight :) )

    If I include emulated games, like Mario64, I have well over an 100 games, thousand if I wished so. But if these kind of games are excluded, I have about 35 games and 5 expansions. 30 * 50 € = a whole lot of money.

    Would you believe me if i told you i have over a thousand PC games ? It's true, and no, they're not illegal copies. A good friend of mine is a Betatester for a gamesmagazine, and the games keep rolling in, for free.

    Getting games for free is easy (getting them free legally is another deal for me) but kinda feels the same :D

    At least 100, that is if your counting all of them from text adventures to those horrid games that you get like, 20 on one CD to the actual good ones, like BG, and IWD2.

    And 20 games? Until last year my family had ten computers and three or four laptops! Sure, we only used six, but still!
