Been using it for years and the bolded part makes no sense to me. I dont really care for Steam, but it has its uses.

I've been using steam since it was in beta a long time ago and love it
post #26 of 56
I don't see why anyone won't use steam
  • It has Counter Strike: Source, Team Fortress 2, Call of Duty, Killing floor, and left for dead as exclusives
  • It has Fallout New Vegas, and other games running on it even if you buy the disk
  • It has EPIC holiday sales
  • If you get hacked, just email steam support with your CDKeys and it will be given back to you
  • You don't have to buy every game through steam ,just ones on sale and ones from the store that need it.

I have steam and actually like it a lot. It is very easy to use and it has an abundance of titles to choose from. It's prices are rather good as well! Although...... I am still old fashioned and enjoy physical media and running it through the dvd drive manually. Which is why I still buy some games at stores if they have it cheap.

So anyone here play DOD source on steam?

i dont like steam cuz of this :

-i dont have any X or _ to minimize or close it which is weird
-it doesnt want to remember my name / PW so i haf to type it every time
-Steam update news on startup piss me off
-kills my DL speed on utorrent (but almost every internet program does that...)

i like it cuz:
-i lost my cd of L4D, and i got my old account back, which had the cd key in it, so i just DL'd it and i can play now
-it looks nice

so....steam is 6.5/10 for me

  • Press the X at the top, or go to the bottom of the startbar and click X on it and it's gone into the taskbar
  • it remembers mine, just click the REMEMBER PASSWORD button
  • The updates are like once a month and take 5 minutes, and you can choose to not show startup updates.

Not making you wrong, just making you aware.

hmm X on top? i know i can close it in the taskbar, but its faster(a sec faster but still) than just clicking x on steam, but i still cant find any X's

i do click remember password, still doesnt do it ^^ oh and it doesnt remember your name, which i like in xfire
