Didn't realize Valve games were already on D2D and then Valve pulled them from their website. Sorry for the confusion on that, My bad I guess. Never recalled any of their games being on D2D.

its not necessarily that people are all valve "fanboys" i keep saying this over and over, its just a matter of convenience having all your friends, games, groups etc. all in one location. I'd like to avoid origin at all times, but depending on their success and from reading many people's posts etc. they might be pretty successful and that ALONE will give other companies the nudge they need to start doing the exact same BS..

Yea I hated Steam when HL2 came out. I was like I just bought this game at EB games, why do I need to put it on this crap? Now I won't buy any game unless I can buy it on Steam.

That's what 7 years will do to you.

THIS. The reason people are upset is because Steam really has THE dominant DD and tool for having a gamer community on PC. If every publisher had their own community and made all their games exclusive to their program... well, that is ****y! I can see people (that are playing mutliplayer games) choose to not buy games if they aren't available to purchase and play with their friends using their current community they've spent years building.

No one wants to set up multiple accounts for each game they buy. Then they have find which of their steam friends bought the game. AND then they need figure out their new tag on this other service just to try and play with them.

I have tons of friends on steam. I've built my list over 5 years. I love being able to just join whatever game my friends are playing. Last night, a small group of us wanted to start a L4D2 4v4 game. One person hosted and we all just joined his game. So simple, fun, and easy. Nothing beats gaming while hanging out. I don't want to lose my friend's list.

If someone creates a better DD and community program than Steam, by all means, do it! It'll eventually take a big chunk out of the market share and people will migrate. I don't think a publisher randomly creating their own setup and making games exclusive is going to win fans. Make your games available on ALL DD services. Hell, make it available on other DDs a week later, but don't cut off such a huge DD like that. If you want to promote your community, it should speak for itself. If it is that amazing, people will join.

I just like the convenience of having all my games on one platform, and since I been using steam, thats the platform I buy my games on.

I do sometimes buy retail, rarely though. Probably going to buy bf3 retail because I doubt it will be on steam

Raven you made a good point but your condescending tone ruins your post.

at first i heard rumors that it wouldn't be available for preorder from steam but you would be able to buy it after release and then have to buy the expansion pack. but with the announcement of all these games getting pulled from steam and other EA games going exclusive that chance has become very slim at best
