Would this make Steam/Valve mad at me?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering if steam/valve would do anything if I coppy my friends DLC files for fallout: New Vegas (Dead Money, Honest Hearts, Old World Blues) and add them to my pc and use them without paying steam for them.

I really dont want Steam/Valve to ban my account if they were to find out somehow. Not really sure if they would care or not.

Steam will find out.

Their systems are very good at finding out when people do exactly what you said above.

Not only will they ban your account they will ban your friends.

Is it really worth it for a few $ worth of dlc. NO

Just buy the games. You'll sleep better knowing that you're not a douche who steals games.

I used my GF's steam account to DL Bioshock, then use a diff. executable that I shortcutted through steam so I don't have to bother w/ my retail copy disk. Haven't been banned.

Probably against ToS what we're talking about, but I'd move your game files out of your steam folder, then add thee DLC, and use a shortcut to use the steam overlay. Just me...

Agreed they will find out and you will get banned........no need to steal material that is only a dollar or two.

Dont get me wrong i have downloaded games but decided to go legit when I realized steam sells good old games for 80% off!!!!!!

Likewise, good sir.

I didn't like the hassle of having to used cracked-exe's to open up a game. It takes forever to find a good one.

Cheap is as close to free as Steam gets. Love it.

Too bad you just missed the first 2 DLC's for dirt cheap during the summer sale. Might have to wait till Winter before all 3 go on sale, but there may be more of them by then too.
