    There's nothing that 'sux' about Steam, I've been using it for years and not a single issue all that time. No fiddling with DVDs that can break or get lost :wink:

    I personally think Steam is great. Of course one or two people are gonna have problems, and some people don't like Valve's dominance in the digital market, but the reason is they offer the best solution to gamers.

    Nothing wrong with it IMO

    Unless that guys profile was only a couple of days old, there is no way possible that his profile could not be found. Steam as well as so many other companies keep constant backups of all their databases. This would make it easy to recover anyone's profile should it get "lost".

    Ditto. Not a single bad experience in the last 4 years.

    If rFactor was available on Steam, I would've bought it years ago :D

    What really sux is that when you buy a game on dvd or cd rom with the anticipation to play right away, you install it and during the install you have register an account with steam to play the game...I don't want to have to sign in to steam to play, or be solicited about the other games they want you to buy through steam...What if i want to play the game offline only, or don't have an internet connection, with steam games you cant!!!

    Well if you're one of the few left around who don't have an internet connection, then you won't be able to use Steam anyhow. If you happen to have no internet connection when you want to play a game, you surely can play offline.
