(Sorry if this is a repeat, I tried searching the forums but nothing similar came up)
The calculator feature is really neat, I was wondering how difficult it would be to implement for users to add the actual price they paid versus the retail price/lowest recorded sale. Like if I bought a game on sale but it went on a better discount a few months later, or if I got a bundle of 5 games for $1 I could average out their price to 20 cents each and have a better idea how much I paid for my collection.
This would help for games that aren't free to play but I got free through some promotion or another, so I could possibly exclude them from the price per hour calculation on the page (which is another feature which might be nice, free games could artificially inflate that figure so you think you've gotten your money's worth but you've really payed TF2 for 100 hours :P ).
There's no way to properly do this without it possibly being abused.
Abused how? Maybe I'm not understanding correctly, but those stats are just for personal reference right? What purpose would there be in exploiting it?
The tool is there to calculate the value of a Steam account so one can compare it with their friends or whatever. If the user can change that value at will it kind of defeats the purpose of the whole tool.
