I've been gaming since the 1980's and if you count arcade machines since the late 70's and I loved to play tabletop rpg's like Tunnels & Trolls (still got my rule book) and Dungeons & Dragons.

Then came the mid 2000's when a car travelling in excess of 60mph hit me from behind while I was cycling to work and left me with an untreated broken back and serious head injury. I landed on my coccyx and instantly lost almost 4'' in height because the spine was crushed vertically on impact with the road and due to the head injury/brain damage, I no longer produce three essential hormones because my pituitary gland was macerated due to the shock wave that propogated up my spine on impact. Because I was sent home with no treatment (they totally missed the breaks and refused to scan my head), I'm now seriously disabled and have to take opiate meds and inject myself daily. It took a year for the breaks to be diagnosed and 7 years for the brain damage to be confirmed. :trolol: Thankfully gaming saved my sanity. I found that playing games really helped with my pain management & kept my mind active.

I'm not a game collector; I buy games to help with my pain management, plus I :spirallove: gaming. My favorite genres include 'in no particular order' RPG's, RTS, FPS, Shmups, Breakouts, Wacky & Psychedelic Indie games, Survival games, Simulation & Tower Defense games. TBH, I enjoy most genres apart from TM games, but what I play usually depends on my mood, whether a friend is available for coop gaming, or what I've just purchased. Some of my all time favorite games include Darklands, the Elder Scrolls franchise, Civilization, Baldurs Gate, Geometry Wars, Raptor, Myst & Riven, R Type, Space Invaders, Ikaruga, Cossacks: The Art of War, The Total War franchise, The Longest Journey, Under A Steel Sky, Aky's XP Breakout, Ricochet Infinity, Incrediball: The Seven Sapphires, Gish, Dune, Command & Conquer, Battlefield Vietnam, Battlefield 2, Conflict Vietnam, Vietcong, Men of Valor, Men of Honor: Pacific Assault, Far Cry 1 & 2, Line of Sight: Vietnam, ArmA II & 3, Rollercoaster Tycoon and I reckon the early access game Conan Exiles will be among those once I've had more time to play it. :yay:

Due to my kids exams, I've taken a hiatus from my Steam library to help with their revision, (though I still visit the Steam Store to check for deals). The end of the day usually see's me nodding off or oggling my wife instead of booting up Steam and the only games I can cope with at the present time are those that require only a few moments to play such as a simple breakout, Shmup or physics based game; so recently, I've been throughly enjoying dipping into my collection of old arcade games that I used to play before I joined the Steam community.

After calculating approximately how much I've spent on games since joining steam Jan 2009, amounting to around £45 000, I decided enough was enough. with over 3K games still left unplayed in my account and inumerable decent AAA and arcade games still to play it was idiotic of me to continu buying games virtually every day. On average since I joined Steam I've bought almost 3.5 games every day (that's really crazy) until I stopped at the end of July 2017. since then the only games added to my account have been those I've been given via varous developers for reviewing them.

So here endeth my Steam purchases. :trolol:

This is a brilliant collection of 23 pinball tables sold in six separate packs (the Star Wars pack has 3, the rest four tables each). These are the most beautiful tables I've ever played. They almost feel like playing on a real table, the graphics are so good.

You can compare your high scores for each table with your friends, and the accumulated high scores for each table also place you on a separate score table.

Ball physics is as good as it gets. I do feel some of the tables lack the ability to play skill shots, they re more about lucky than anything, but other tables compensate for that.

If you like pinball games I recommend you don't wait till the sales and get them now. I thought at first the full cost was prohibitive, but when you consider you are getting 23 tables, it's actually a steal as each table works out at less than £1.40 each (approx $2)

Got loads more games to trade; just check my inventory. Everything apart from the Free to Play dlc packs are up for trade plus a few others that I've already earmarked for friends or family, but most games from page 1 to 11 are up for grabs so long as decent trade is offered. I've also got several thousand steam codes (including ggames that are no longer available via Steam) from indie bundles that I'd like to trade for cards only. I will eventually post a list of these, but you can always ask me if i have a particular game code. I will trade for other games that I don't have in my
library, but am not interested in backgrounds, drops from games like CS:Go etc or emicons; though I am interested in completing sets of trading cards, so are happy to swap cards.

Those games/dlc in my inventory that have been removed from Steam I'd rather trade for other games that have been removed, but at a push I’d consider other options such as games I don't have, or a decent offer of trading cards, but those games are at a premium, so no discounts and more than likely a percentage multiplier on the cost of the game. I'm not looking to make a massive profit on those games as I don't like taking advantage of peoples wants, just a fair trade. I don't want cash for any of my games, I'm not interested in cash.

You can see a comprehensive list of removed games HERE . As you can see, some games are available online still from places like Amazon, but these sources will dry up as more game collectors buy them up.

Apart from the games/dlc's that have been removed that you can find in my inventory, I also have a Steam code for BRINK which has also been removed (not in my inventory) and there are a couple that were included in earlier bundles that are no longer on Steam that I’ve not listed these include keys for Transcripted and Your Doodles are Bugged!,I've got others such as Fuel, but haven't had much time spare to make a list of removed games from the spare codes I have. (I've been slowly working on a full list of game codes I have, but it's a tedious process as I have at least ten thousand spare codes. I gave away several hundred in one go last year, and have still to delete those from the list I've already made.

Sometime in the future (I don't know when, as i still have thousands of games to add to the document), I will be giving away some of them to friends.

P.M. me if you are interested in trading for any of the games in my inventory. I will also trade any card in my inventory. I've decided not to persue Steam levels as I think it's a big valve rip off, but i'm still creating sets to get the discount coupons since they changed the drops to coupons for games that you don't own.
