what my point is, you are forced to open steam, launch the game from steam, and have steam running, to play, some people love steam and is okay with it, which is fine, then they can play with steam open.
the problem is, you are forced to use it, there is no choice offered to just install the game and launch the game without being shackled with other programs
Yeah but when you have a very substantial and large amount of people who use Steam 24/7 and have it open all the time anyways, you aren't "forced to open steam'' because steam is already on 85% of the time on most of our computers..Steam is on my computer 99% of the time on my computer, the only reason i turn it off is to use Origin to play BF3 (too much ram usage when using both).

When you login tick the "remember password" box and next time you try going offline mode it won't ask you for a password.Edited by Despair - 5/20/12 at 12:36am
