My Pile of Games – March 2020

The first post on surveying my pile of games can be found here. I will try to track changes – e.g. additions, completions, stalls, delays – and also update play times to keep my process a bit more transparent.

I also try to track playtimes a bit on various titles.

As I own an account there since 2004, the most relevant (and trackable) platform is of course Steam; so I pulled up some data from to get a first overview:

Really want to play games in the upcoming future:

  • Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age
  • Edge of Eternity

Of course there are so much more games in this library that I want to play, and many that I will never play. There is quite an amount of gifted games in there, so not all these games have been bought.

Good old Games (GoG)

My account on GoG was created 2014 and I use this account not only to collect some romanticized games from my teenage years, but also to support GoG & CD Project Red with their own games, like Witcher and Gwent. My activity with GoG games mainly falls into the ‘Really want to play’ category, but somehow I never take this leap of faith.

Briefly some stats on my library and what has been played so far.

  • Games owned: 38
  • Games played: 3
  • Hours on record: 246h

Completed games include the following:

  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition (175h, 61%)
  • Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales (43h, 84%)

Active games that I currently play occasionally:

  • Gwent: The Witcher Card Game (28h, 54%)

Incompleted games:

  • Gwent: The Witcher Card Game (28h, 54%)

Really want to play games in the upcoming future:

  • Baldur’s Gate I & II
  • Battle Isle
  • Icewind Dale I & II
  • Neverwinter Nights I & II
  • Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition

Yes, I am a big Blizzard fan and I think their games always have (or more had) a very special attention to detail and an awesome gameplay loop. Their skills in delivering such experiences have dramatically waned of late, so I am not playing their games that much anymore.

Below an overview and an estimation of my playtimes. Maybe I will update this list, when I log into one of the games or subscribe later again.

  • Destiny 2 (approx. 100-160h)
  • Diablo 3 (approx. 1.200h)
  • Hearthstone (approx. 20h, mainly on iPad)
  • Heroes of the Storm (approx. 15-20h)
  • Overwatch (approx. 30-40h)
  • Starcraft 2 (approx. 120h, the only game I still play once in a while)
  • World of Warcraft (played from 2006 – 2010 as my main game; should be several thousand hours… holy sh**!)

Origin & Uplay

I hardly own games exclusively available on these two platforms. Still noteworthy are the following games:

  • Division 2
  • Dragon Age 2 (2h, still want to finish one day)
  • Dragon Age 3 (not started, want to play it, but so many people say I should not bother…)
  • Star Wars – The Old Republic (around 500-800h)
