I will admit steam is a godsend, and valve gets extreme props for its creation, however I talking about their abilities as developers.
Recently their games have been low par; im thinking l4d and l4d2; sure kinda fun but I would never pay more the the 6$ I got for it. Portal was awesome but way too short, then there are games like TF2 which I really dont see the appeal in, especially now with the item store. Also I tried playing HL2, even with the cinematic mod it felt dated in both gfx and gameplay. While the story was awesome, the gameplay was just too boring for me to get through.
Well HL2 is well over half a decade old. When it came out everyone and their mom was orgasming through 15 layers of clothing and cooking the neighbors pig as a celebration. The reason people like tf2 is because of the -mostly- casual gameplay. It's one of the best if not -the- best community out there. Bunch of cool people kicking back and having a good time. But I believe the hats and stuff ruined the community a little bit
Maybe you're just not a fan of the steam engine, I know not everyone is.
