Won't somebody think of the Steam games?

A massive data-mining effort of publicly-available Steam data by the wizards at Ars Technica has revealed that over a third of all Steam games haven’t ever even been launched. Out of the roughly 781 million games registered to accounts, that’s an astonishing 288 million titles left unloved and alone.
The data-mining also revealed, perhaps unsurprisingly, that Dota 2 was the most played-and-owned game on Steam, with 25.93 million Steam accounts owning the game — and nearly every single one of them registering some playtime. That’s followed closely (and also unsurprisingly) by Team Fortress 2, then Half-Life 2: Lost Coast and Counter-Strike Source.
I won’t copy-and-paste someone else’s hard work so please, click on through to Ars Technica and look at all the graphs. Fascinating.
