Question STEAM Trading Cards

Profile looks neat, you've reviewed almost half the games you've owned which is quite impressive in itself.
Where do you go to craft the badges? As I've never bothered with this before.
I got a long way then 😁

@Kovanen Sure, that is a possibility, the only thing is that I also have a long way to go to finish a game completely. I often skip games when I get bored or just want to experience something different. I very seldom play one game for a long time, with the exception of the games I play together with my nephews. The majority of the Steam games are from the period when Fanatical was called Humble Bundle and had a lot of good bundles for a low cost. They now changed that to become the "Mystery bundle and regurgitate old bundles site". Some also come from gifts and free games from here and there.
 
This thread actually convinced me that I should be selling these cards, honestly. They aren't worth much, but I have over 400 "marketable" items in my inventory. Even at 5 cents a piece that's actually not bad for basically doing nothing.
so, is this what they call tru passive income? 🤣
(of course it's not you bought games for this to happen.) 😝

I mean... There's time, If you start now? How do you even own that many games?!
probably tons of humblebundles? maybe...? 😁

So.. STEAM Trading Cards, who collects them? Who trades them? Who sells them? Is it something you're interested in or is it just another pointless system that fades into the background?

I sold all of them once in the past, but it was around 5 years ago. It was enough to buy Dishonored on sale. :) Right now I've gathered quite a lot of them, so I might actually do a similar step in the near future. Don't need this crap. :p

Not around here, a litre costs €2.16 and I'm pretty sure there's a minimum of two litres, so I can't get any with that. Good thing I don't own a car.

It costs €1,58 per litre here! But I bet that for your average paycheck you can buy a lot more of them than in my country... ;)

Right now where I live in the US, gas is around $4.55 per gallon, which is around 4 liters. I guess I don't feel too bad now, as much as you guys are paying. It was only a couple of years ago that it was like around $1.75 per gallon.
 
One thing about cards that you might not know is that every transaction you make with cards gives both Valve and the game's publisher some of the proceeds, which can be good for small indie devs.

I've got 1042 items in my inventory right now. What I plan to do is to complete the badges for the games I finished, but I've not been in any hurry to do that. I kept up with it for awhile and got quite a number of badges.

Overall, I like the point system and point shop a lot better than the cards.

I envy these prices, even despite the fact that they were much lower in the past. You can freely ride from the east to the west coast in your own car in these circumstances. :)

Wow, I didn't know about that. Maybe it's a good idea to trade these cards after all. It's an another way to support the publishers.

Also didnt know about this, I'm about due a clearout as well and good to know they get a little something from it.

I usually ignore the trading cards until I have a lot then sell them all for a little store credit. I dont really collect anything in real life other than maybe books, so I definitely dont have any craving for digital collectables.

Capital region Finland fuel price check, its around 2.21 per litre for E95, a couple of weeks ago it was over 2.50 for a bit. The bus service works really well though.

Even if you could afford the gas, it would probably take you about a week to drive from the east to west coast in the US.

Just looked it up, and driving from New York City to San Francisco would take about 43 hours without any delays.

But.. what an amazing experience that would be. As an Englishman, driving from the Midlands to the south of England takes around 5 hours 30 minutes and for most of that journey all you'd see is motorways (Highways) and traffic, lots and lots of traffic.

I'm fully aware of that. :) This was only an example of what you can do with these prices. ;) Our government cut the taxes for fuel to a minimum in the last year and still the prices are too high for our paychecks...

My parents did that trip about 10 years ago. We live in Indiana toward the east side, and my brother used to live in Redding, California. They took a road trip seeing the south side of the country on the way, and the north side coming home. It wore them out, but it was the trip of a lifetime.

Oh that sounds incredible, I'd love to be in a position to do that one day.

Did that trip one way when I moved out west, took a northerly route—Wyoming, Utah etc—as there was bad flooding on the south. A memory which still haunts me is an overnight in Cheyenne to the tune of train whistles, it seemed like all night long! They sure like their trains up there :)

Quite a trip tho, we spent 5 days on it. Some mundane, but some really spectacular too.

That's awesome. I'd love to do it sometime, but I don't see it happening. Did you make sure to take the Donner Pass?
