    Steam games?

    I have a slight predicament. I logged on my steam earlier this evening and found 40+ new, un-installed games, which I haven't bought. I got my parents to check their bank and no money had been taken out. I'm not sure where these games came from, or why they are there.

    Anyone have any idea?

    Best place to ask for Steam support is probably Steam support.

    If I had to guess I'd say it's a glitch. Try installing the games and see if you can play them. I've had games appear in my list that I didn't pay for a few times as well. Some stayed permanently, others didn't.

    At any rate I wouldn't worry about it. I'm assuming you didn't do anything strange to get those games into your account. And if they do turn out to stay permanently: yah! for free games

    Ive sent a support ticket in, so I can only wait.
    My parents advised me not to open any of them, just in-case it is a virus or hack of some sort. Ill wait for the ticket then take action

    It's not a hack... they just added the whole Free to Play library for everyone by default. So now you don't need to go in store and choose your F2P game, you can just do that by looking into your own library!

    Looks like its gone now. I think it was a bug from the last update but at least they added a new cool feature now: Family Library Sharing so now you can allow up to ten PC's(accounts) to use your library so its like sharing games with friends you get to choose.

    Yeah about that. Don't share games with your "friends". Even with Steams' added e-mail verification I predict a lot of people are going to loose their Steam accounts to random people on their friends lists they share games with. Of course they'll get them back if they bother to contact Steam support, but it'll be a hassle.

    I'd recommend keeping it as the name suggests: for family only.

    Well, none of my family play steam. They play consoles, so all for me!
