    Thread worthy, maybe not but I just had a question with maybe some side discussion.

    http://steamcommunity.com/id/gamer_7601

    700 hours of playtime in the past two weeks. As far as I am aware, that's almost a month worth of hours. How is that possible? Also, look at the join date - 2003. Didn't steam release with HL2 in 2004?

    I'm wondering if he's some test account that just runs multiple games 24/7. Then again, not sure why it'd be in Germany as the location

    Oh, and you don't even want to know his total Gmod hours. It's almost 8k. That's close to a full year of playing non-stop.

    I am guessing he just modded his stats.

    Yeah that may put you onto "leaderboards" somewhere, but you look like a douchebag while doing it...

    That's more than a month's worth of hours.

    Steam has been around since 2003 and for the games the dude could be either sharing the account or leaving the games open.

    Even if he was shared, IIRC only one person can be logged in at the same time?

    I thought it was a cafe account too until I saw the join date and him having friends.

    G-mod wise, he might have ran a dedicated listen server for someone or something. The Galaxy Simulator though, I have no idea.

    Also I imagine you can inflate your total hrs played by running more than one game at once? I doubt he's somehow "hacked" his hours played. His join date is the day Steam launched (can you look this up on Wikipedia or something).
