Strange, I've never heard Steam losing customers games and telling them to basically buy it again, nor have I ever heard of Steam banning people from playing games based on what they said on the Steam forums.

Too true. I don't think I'll ever look at Dragon Age the same way after playing the Witcher.

Well, Steam certainly wouldn't be as important if developers knew how to integrate a decent chat & pm service in their games. On many games out today, its near impossible to organize a game with your friends w/o using steam. I don't know what it is about game devs that they can't grasp the concept of AOL IM.
-Borderlands - has one of the worst chat services out there. You cant message people between games and past messages aren't easy to bring up. no PM ability. If you're not in the game with your friends you can't communicate with them
-Dead Space 2 - forget it, its impossible to communicate with people in your team, let alone having the illusion of being able to contact someone outside that game
-Crysis 2 - Communication for this fast paced game is slow and laborious. No PMing and chat is hard to continue from games to the server lobby.
-Starcraft 2 - Bnet finally introduced a lobby and has a better pm service going but in the start it was damn annoying to try and get people together.
Bioshock 2 - *lesigh*
The other nice things about the Steam overlay is being able to browse other servers as you play in one, the variety of options in filters and being able to see where all your buddies are and inviting them even as they play in other games.
