The TA way.

Time played isn't a reliable stat on Steam. You can have 100% achievements and zero hours in a game if you play in offline mode or 100s of hours in a game without having even started it simply by idling.
Also, since the DLC already uses the second method, there's no reason to have two separate methods for base and additional content.

I thought this was amended to TA's style anyway? Its only accounts that joined prior to January that still have 0 games (like mine).

Since January playtime didn't seem to factor into what was counted as a 'played game', you had to unlock one achievement (i.e. TA's method). So most of us thought the switch was made.
The problem is that this change wasn't applied to games 'played' before January, so older users have heaps of games marked as 'played'.

Actually, looking at my game collection, it seems the switch was never made (as you said) but the tracking of playtime on games with zero achievements earned stopped, effectively looking like the switch was made.

That seemed to stop in January.

However anyone who joined before January has these games where they haven't got any achievements in still on their account.

For example taking a look at my games I can see that the site says I own Broken Sword 5:

"Broken Sword 5 - the Serpents Curse - 0 of 35 - 0 of 619"

Now I do own Broken Sword but only ran it for the cards. Haven't started it achievement wise yet.

Game with playtime aren't even being added to collections anymore, it doesn't count towards your collection at unless you earn achievements.

Maybe this is actually a site bug, that people seem to like positively.

A quick update - this was changed a little while back to stop gamer game records being created for games with playtime but no achievements. I've just removed all of the gamer game records with no achievements attached and the daily site calculations are re-running now.

I guess that effectively 'fixes' the problem and now the site does fully use TA's calculation method. Time for everyone's scores to plummet again smile

The update is already live and everyone should be taken care of. All games with 0 achievements earned are gone from my games played. Should be working for you too.

Aye, my TSA goal is looking pretty insurmountable right now, but I was expecting to be at my completion percentage for months, not -24 hours! smile
