    Steam 'External Funds Used' tool lets you check your spends

    However, the total doesn't include games/codes you've bought via third parties.

    At least now, Steam will be able to diagnose whether or not I have Hazardous Gaming Disorder...!!

    Have you signed a GDPR thingy?

    I'll have to check when I get home.
    I imagine the total will be surprisingly low, as I buy games cheap and more often they've been gifted to me.

    Anyway, I thought you could just look through your account transaction history and total up all the spends?

    Somewhat higher than I imagined, considering most of my Steam games come from Humble Bundle in recent years. Gone are the days I happily pay full price for games, more so now publishers think I'm a console gamer.

    There you go Zak, not as high as I thought it may have been considering I have had an account since Half Life 2 and 2004.

    I tend to buy stuff cheap from places like Greenman Gaming and Humble now, have done for a while rather than paying top price for something.

    Writing and running reports on metrics is a small part of my day job, as such I have gained a bit of OCD for accurate data. I refuse to even attempt to look at this as the inaccuracy will infuriate me!
