I do like what Steam offers with games delivered at cheaper prices straight to me with relatively little strings attached. The games are constantly updated too and the friends list works well. Man I love steam

Newell is a legend

Back in 2003, I laughed at a friend who raved about Steam. At the time it was mostly just counter strike on it I believe and so I didn't bother. Now I wished I had been there from the start, their games are awesome...they are free to mod and create new games from and steam itself offers a way to chat to friends, enjoy games with them and get awesome games for cheap prices.

If I was in Newell's shoes right now I would be getting people in to add screenshot and video capturing services, that would then ultimately put and keep Steam at the top

Steam seriously used to be SHIT. Back when you had to install it if you wanted to play Half Life 2, it was the worst PC experience since DOS.

Nowadays it's one of the fastest growing ways of getting new games and the first place I check if I'm considering buying a new PC title. I pity any games company too snooty to join up with Steam to distribute their games and wish Steam would close the gap between international and Steam release dates and then it'd be perfect.

Er, I thought you still needed it to play Half Life 2? I installed it from The Orange Box the other week and it automatically installed Steam. I was pretty disappointed actually, as I purposely bought the retail release assuming Steam wouldn't be required.

As for timely international release dates, they're working on it.
