“I spent too much money on video games this month. All of my savings have gone up in Steam”

Steam is a platform for video games. Money often goes “up in smoke,” but a video gaming joke is:

“I spent too much money on video games this month. All of my savings have gone up in Steam.”

The joke was posted on Reddit—Jokes on January 4, 2017, and was posted again on Reddit—Jokes on January 12, 2018.


Wikipedia: Steam (software)
Steam is a digital distribution platform developed by Valve Corporation, which offers digital rights management (DRM), multiplayer gaming, video streaming and social networking services. Steam provides the user with installation and automatic updating of games, and community features such as friends lists and groups, cloud saving, and in-game voice and chat functionality. The software provides a freely available application programming interface (API) called Steamworks, which developers can use to integrate many of Steam’s functions into their products, including networking, matchmaking, in-game achievements, micro-transactions, and support for user-created content through Steam Workshop. Though initially developed for use on Microsoft Windows operating systems, versions for OS X and Linux were later released. Mobile apps with connected functionality with the main software were later released for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone devices in the 2010s.

The Steam platform is the largest digital distribution platform for PC gaming, estimated in 2013 to have 75% of the market space.
