Do You Own Over 25,000 Steam Games? Good News, Steam Will No Longer Crash

Let's face it, we've all got a gaming backlog, often known as "The List". That can build for numerous reasons, whether you just didn't finish a particular game, you've not got the time, or bought several during a sale with the intention to "play it later".

Our collections are forever growing, but on Steam, several people have now exceeded a ridiculous 25,000 games out of the 51,000 games available, putting the rest of us to shame. Due to this excess library, it caused a rare error that left the client app liable to crash, but Steam's latest beta update has now fixed this.

Do You Own Over 25,000 Steam Games? Good News, Steam Will No Longer Crash

For most of us, we'd have likely never spotted the issue, but looking at Steam analytics site Steamladder, at least three people currently exceed this threshold. As an unofficial tracking site, this could be inaccurate though, but assuming Valve didn't spot it in their own testing, one of them could've reported it.

Despite already hosting a tremendous library, Steam looks set to grow even further. Last year saw over 10,000 games added to Valve's popular platform, and there's no sign of this slowing down.
