OP  2/01/14 1:15:23 PM#1

I'm not a fan of it.  I don't like having one account with X amount of games. If I lose the account there goes my games if I can't recover the account.

 

I would much rather have the game installed right on my pc and have a separate login for it. I'd feel like I actually own it more than I would through a client like steam.

I used to feel the same way, but I eventually came over to the dark side.  I love Steam now.

If one is that paranoid about losing their account then they should go to greater lengths to ensure that they can recover their account in different ways.

Or make proper backups of information or whatever.

I don't dislike it I guess, I just won't ever use it. I only play mmorpg's and buy direct from the company making it or the box from Amazon. I'm not interested in using Steam or anything similar to play something I like. My son and husband however have no problem with Steam.

Steam is just a store. I don't "like" it anymore than I like the store where I buy my groceries. They have good prices on games so I buy them there sometimes but when GMG offers an extra 25% off a game I want I never hesitate to buy there instead and also do prefer buying on GOG because you actually own the games you buy there. Being fanboys of particular stores is for idiots. Makes even less sense than being a fanboy of a product.

I don't mind Steam, until I have to use that joke they call a support system. Then I hate them.

Seriously, I don't even know how such a dominant company gets away with such absolute garbage support.

I like it.  Convenient and in some cases very good deals. 

 

But for those who can't behave themselves and get account banned, I could see where it's a problem, especially if your account consists of many games.

I love steam, it is a great service to get games on sale and play with friend. 

It is getting harder to avoid steam these days anyways. Games like Bioshock Infinite are updated through steam even if you buy a boxed copy. If it is not through steam these days it will end up being through Origin if it's an EA published game, or U-play if it is an Ubisoft game. That's the way things are going these days. Connected game services, but the benefits of cross game chat and unified friends lists are tough to beat. 

try to get over the fear, and the of the positives that come with it. Also, let's not forget massive sales.

I don't care for it either. Why would I want to load a program, to load my programs? Stupid. I don't need 3rd party software to run my programs. I know its popular, shop, download and play on the same program. Don't need it.

 

its like the X-Box one to me. I don't need the x-box one to rum my movies, cable, computer, and games. I just want a game console.

I don't dislike it, but I don't shop there.  Call me old fashioned but box, disc and key on a sticker is more my style.  Occasionally GoG if they have something I want.

 

If I just uttered incomprehensible gibberish, assume that I'm tweaking. It happens.

I could take it or leave it, but I do LOVE Valve and their games.

I resented having to use steam to play GA but got over it.  Then a patch came along that just wouldn't patch.  Long story short:  Steam's support blamed GA, GA's support blamed Steam leaving a customer unable to play the game.  Dropped GA and uninstalled Steam.

Perhaps Steams Technical Support has improved...

Steam is great for me. I was worried early on about losing my account and the games on it, however I was relieved to be able to download the game and the key for each one to play. I dont download the games anymore, but it is nice to know I can at anytime.

As for the account, I keep a phone book with my user name and password recorded in it. Every few months I will go thru and change all my passwords. Better safe than sorry.

I used to be leery, but I too came to the darkside.  Sharing the games (w/ saves) across computers is rather handy.  Specials have gotten me to take risks on games for 5 bucks that normally I wouldn't have tried. 

 

It simply is better than everything else out there for digital distribution.  It does occupy such a large part of the market that similar companies can't compete.  GoG games occupies a vital nitch different than steam, and some companies have opted to go with proprietary platforms such as Battlenet and Origin.

Same here... and a map! A tangible map please! Cloth preferred but I'd settle for paper over nothing.

The OP pretty much summed up the most important black mark on the system.The second problem is support,their support is the lamest support i have seen,they almost always tell you the problem is with the main  developer and not them.

The good thing about the service is you are most likely buying the games cheaper than anywhere else and you always have the ability to d/l from Steam,delete it and d/l again later.I think for a long time Steam was untrusted by many,now i guess it will be around a long time and since we get games so cheap ,even if it folded up shop we would not lose a heck of a lot.

I wouldn't say I only buy from steam but I really do like digital DL from companies that let you re DL the game any time in the future you want. 

I don't like to keep boxes and CD keys or any physical copy of games, but I do like that if my HD ever crashes I can just DL all my games again and pick up right where I left off.

I also like the friends features. I can see what friends are playing see how much time they put in on games and it really helps decide if I want a game or not. It's also very easy to join them through steam.

Steam has it's down sides like...some games can't be played if steam goes off line. You could lose the account...I guess. but for me the benefits out weight the negatives so I'm happy to use it.

That and steam sales are pretty hard to beat. I have a lot of great games I never you have played and I paid $5 for them.

People are like cats. When they die, you get a new one.

I like steam as a program, but I don't understand people who buy games from steam. They are horribly priced doesn't matter if it's a sale or not. And for the people who are going to flame me for this just google around, they are horribly overpriced in steam.

 What are you talking about? Steam typically has the best sales on games. Once in while another site will have them beat but it is not all that often.  So where is this website that has cheaper games than steam?

Losing your steam account is about as likely as losing your bank account. It will only happen if you make extremely stupid decisions.
