I'm totally outraged that I now have a free optional feature that allows me to play my rather sizable collection of local multiplayer only steam games online. It's awful. How dare they?

Careful there, they might open source it and make things even worse.

you know why they don't report bridge jumpers from the Golden Gate? It increases the # of jumps.

The same philosophy applies for negativity and ridiculousness. It's less likely to happen and repeat itself if its ignored.

Guys, this isn't to play local (as in LAN) multiplayer games over the internet. It's to play local as in "split-screen console style" multiplayer games over the internet.

Quite a few smaller games lately have been releasing without remote co-op. This closes that gap.

Some games still do support direct IP connection to a server but it's getting more rare as developers prefer to have their own single point of attack called master server without which their whole game dies instantly. The master server is used for discovering servers run by anyone or in some cases by the developer only.
An old school LAN doesn't need to be LAN if one has public IP server.

Who is this feature for with Steam...??? Beside the split screen gaming streaming mode? What Steam games actually benefit from having a VPN = one lacks public IP to run their server?

Edit: well damn, still is. Lol

This seems to be confusing, for some reason. This is a great feature. People complain about local games not having multiplayer all the time.

^^ many many games would be vastly improved if they approached mp like borderlands, or even half as much.

What this does is it Streams your game (only shared screen multiplayer games) to your friend so they can play with you. For them it's like they are playing on Stadia or something, they are basically streaming the game from your PC. They just show up as a second local controller being connected. I've tried this with two friends in two games so far and it's worked great. Really cool feature to have.
