Im very mixed about liking steam and not liking steam

the interface is nice and i love the fact that most games i would want, Would be there whenever i want them.

Now stuff i hate about steam are...
VAC, Hackers dont get banned untill 2 or 3 matches on steam games

The fact you need to wait VALVE TIEM when you brought a game retail and everyone else already has it, The point of pre ordering is so you get to play it first...

Steams DRM... Yeah its a minor excuse but i still feel there watching me >.>

I love Steam. Just got a 4 pack of Left 4 Dead 2, Borderlands + all the DLC, and Wings of Prey for under $60. And the DRM is a non-issue when you compare it to the DRM in most other games out today. I can install my games as many times as I want on as many computers as I want, and I've got no CD's to worry about or anything.

If I could, I'd have all my games on Steam.

Nooooo. Every SINGLE steam game that requires VAC bans (aside from Mw2) have the ability for you to kick or ban every single hacker in a dedicated server. Dunno what game you're talking about.

OCN's calculator is having a seizure.

About as happy as I would be getting my toenails torn out. - 37 - 7.17%
Indifferent. - 68 - 13.18%
I love steam. - 381 - 73.84%
I wouldn't mind it if they weren't such douche bag control freaks. - 80 15.50%

07.17% + 13.18% + 73.84% + 15.50% = 109.69%

You could select multiple options. It's not broken... Technically. Although you might vote on two/three/four items, it only counts as one for the "Total votes".

is that a DERP moment right there?

so a consumer who purchases a product, is pirating,and stealing it? quick everyone get off the car lot, less you be charges with grand theft auto!
