    How much is your Steam account worth?

    $2891 though I'd say I bought a good few on special offer, but still. Started in 2004 with half-life, generally buy all sorts these days, big releases, small developers, indie titles.

    Most difficult challenge you have set yourself in a video game?

    Starship Troopers: Terran Ascendancy only using equipment seen in the first movie, also restricted the number of officers in my squad to a sensible number. Did not finish, can't actually remember how far I got.

    Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30, I was stunned when I first played that game and still go back to it today.

    Poll: How many people have actually read The Lord of the Rings?

    I think you have to read all his works to get a full appreciation of what he created, it makes most subsequent fantasy seem rather shallow by comparison, even some of the good stuff.
