Here’s a little exercise for you to do.
- Calculate the amount of games you’ve bought and played less than twice in your Steam library (for example, I have 8)
- That’s it. That’s your customer score, now proceed to check from the following “chart” to see how good customer you are
Score 0: cheapskate
You are either a very cheap or pulling on some other shenanigans. Shame on you.
Score 1-2: poor start (you’ve bought 1 or 2 games that you haven’t really played yet)
You are not a very good customer. You should try improve your rating by buying loads of more games. After all, game developers need money. And you certainly have some (since you have time to buy games that you don’t play), so go ahead tiger and buy some games.
Score 3-5: good!
Now we are onto something. Clearly you are not only buying games, but you are also not consuming them. That’s a good sign: it means less support & maintenance for game developers. We are all proud of you. Keep up the good work.
Score 6-10: amazing!
Whoa. You certainly like bargain deals, don’t you? Awesome job. Keep on buying games, and don’t forget to visit the game developer’s own sites every now and then. After all, they all are eager to get your money. In fact, I know just the perfect game for you to buy right now – and don’t worry if you bought it earlier, the more licenses you get the better.
Score 11+: whoa!!
Either you are cheating, loaded or something… but this result is amazing. If the rest of the planet would act like you, game devs would not be bitching so much. The world needs more people like you: the people who buy games like you – without touching them. You have earned the collectors badge. Keep on buying. After all, game development is not about money. It’s about the money in your pockets.
