Players must know that Valve’s Steam platform is currently one of the world’s largest comprehensive digital distribution platforms, and the platform has a large number of games and player users. Like other software, Steam also needs constant optimization, version updates, etc. We are all used to installing updates from time to time. However, you may not pay much attention to the specific update content and details. Recently, the Steam client beta has made an interesting update, which is to fix the bug that “If you buy too much game around 25000, the client program may crash”!
The Steam client beta shows: “Fix a possible crash for users with around 25000 or more games”. Which means this bug is now already fixed! Although fixing bugs is a normal thing, the trigger condition of “25,000 games” is really intriguing. Who actually bought 25,000 games on Steam? Most importantly, why…?
The question arises, if all the games on the Steam platform are included in the bag, how much will it cost? “At present, it was found that the local player who had the most games on Steam at that time was a North American player with the ID “dwight schrute”. This player owned 31,216 games at the time, with a total value of US$188,000! Players can also click here and insert their account ID if they want to see how much their account is worth!
At the same time, Valve will naturally not fix some small bugs for one person, but a “big” bug for three people (for now)! That’s right, according to the statistics of the Steamladder website, only three players in the world have met the conditions for triggering the above bug. In addition to the North American player “dwight schrute”, the Chinese player “Sonix” and the Russian player “gt4” are also eligible. In addition, after more than half a year, “dwight schrute” bought more than 1,000 new games, and currently has 32,829 products. (Of course, if you watch it again next week, the number will increase again, and so on.)
I don’t really understand the rich people’s world! Maybe the developers who designed the Steam platform did not expect that someone would buy 25,000 (or more) games now, so a bug was left in the program. The existence of three local players (several of them are close to reaching the number as well, all around 24,000 games) have allowed the Steam platform to fix a bug that ordinary players will not encounter in their lives. This should be regarded as an achievement!
Of course, the statistics of the website Steamladder cannot be 100% accurate. It may ignore some of the games that have been removed from the store or remove from the library. If players look up some information in SteamDB, you can find that the aforementioned Chinese player “Sonix” might be the player with the most games in the world. He has bought more than 42,200 games (of course, it will continue to be updated and bought all the time)! This player has invested 12 hours of playing only 22 games, and his average playing time is only 19 hours. There are 41,718 games that he have never played after he bought them, making people speechless…
From the data of SteamDB, there may be more than three players who have started 25,000 (or more) games. However, there is no time to compare the data of Steamladder and SteamDB one by one. Anyway, this bug fixed by the Steam platform has nothing to do with most players. Finally, I really want to experience the crash bug of this program!
