About This Episode

We know some people who have some pretty hefty game collections. But what about 25,000 games? All on Steam? Patch notes in a recent Steam update mentioned a fix for libraries of 25,000+ games. If you didn’t do anything else it would take approximately 3 years to even test out that many games. What are some theories behind who owns these libraries? That’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play podcast.
