My opinion about Steam? It simply sucks

Valve's Steam content delivery system has met with quite a few hiccups along the way, but Valve promised they'd iron those out. I guess it is a work in progress still.

you don't have to run the client 24/7, only for playing the game

I just don't feel like installing a client such as steam for each company
Makes me angry sometimes that it has come so far.

They proptect a year hardlabour investment... with thousands of people living from it

compare amount of illegal HL2 copies vs illegal D3 copies and you get Lazyman's drift

Steam-a-like-soft is the only way to keep the games from being hacked & copied

The only way to protect the investment from hackers. How do you feel when people came to your house and took your P4 2.8Ghz and returned the second day because they forgot your R9800 on the first try?

So, you the lock on your door ... pain the *** to carry keys around; takes time to unlock the door at your own house.

You guys don't bother that it sucks 10 megs of ram? And why does it have to be running when you want to play HL²?
The procedure for registering was also a pain in the *** (he had to decrypt the files for like half an hour)
True, it doesn't suck, but I find it a bit "overbodig" (can't find the english word , let's say I find it "not necessary" (and is that spelled correct? ))

never had probs here to with updating the latest patches

I just fired up Steam here after finishing HL2 back in 2004. In updated everything flawlessly at 300-400kb/s, and was up & running with the latest patches and maps in no time. had some good fun with the new CS bots
