If I was to respond to this thread truthfully, I'd get kicked off the Lost Alpha team for the amount of verbal violence I would unleash on you all.
The twilight of light and darkness would quiver at my holy rage,
one that outdoes the one shown by the messiah of Christianity towards towards
the money changers in Herod's temple.

So, considering that, I'll be tame in saying that people who can't appreciate Valve and Steam need to get hit by a truck full of cancer for their blightful case
of mental degeneration.

Bitches...

My feelings on it aren't as strong as yours (I really love Valve, but don't feel such things are worthy of wrath), that was REALLY fun to read! Do it again! What else pisses you off?

You will have to consult to my SU-85 if you want to do that!

But anyway, this is the reason why people (like me) say that Steam suck:

- Slow and unreliable

- Very change sensitive

- Flood your PC with useless updates

- Constant overloading of content servers

- Account stealers

- The need to be online of all time, even when you want to switch to offline mode

- Due to updates, mods and mod tools constantly wreak

- Other made up reasons for trolling

Steam is a great idea, but it was just too poorly implemented to be anything more than an annoyance.

Steam is fine. It's not the second coming of Jesus, but compared to other digital distribution platforms I've tried it's the best, and is very unobtrusive. I will never understand why people would have such strong feelings about it either way...

@ 009 ~ a lot of your list are among the things "anti-Steam" people often say about Steam, unfortunately most aren't true

Slow and unreliable - it isn't with the new client (it uses Webkit as opposed to the old Microsoft HTML platform).

Flood your PC with useless updates - If you think that updates to your games are "useless" then switch off auto-update. Do you complain about the auto-update feature of Windows? Or any other software for that matter?

Constant overloading of content servers - In the last few years I've only had issues with Steam's servers a couple of times. That's not bad in my opinion. I couldn't log into this forum earlier on, I just waited five minutes and tried again; welcome to the internet

Account stealers - email accounts, ebay accounts, facebook accounts, forum accounts, even bank accounts; these are all things that can be 'stolen' if you don't keep your password secure, so I don't see how this is relevant.

The need to be online of all time, even when you want to switch to offline mode - erm, the whole point in "offline mode" is that you don't have to be online. I've had to use it a couple of times and had no problems, although I know with the old client it would often refuse to work for some people (seems to be fixed with the new one).

Due to updates, mods and mod tools constantly wreak - again, turn off auto-update if you're that worried.

Yeah, I forgot that most of those problem exists in old versions of Steam. Thankfully Valve fixed most of them

The mod breaker one came from the Mac updates, it wreaks my Smod . And I was working on that

Having used Steam since it was in public beta, I can attest that it's an order of magnitude better now than it was in 2003.

Whoever needs to bypass Steam to play offline can email me. Also search on Russian Google, as it isn't controlled by corporate jackasses. I think people should be able to choose whether or not they want to play or connect online or not.

Being an avid user of steam allow me to say I would not have been introduced to the stalker world without it, never heard of it till I saw it on steam, 20 bucks fine got shadow of chernobyl and got hooked, so thank you steam advertising. Also regarding some points others made.
Steam isn't slow, your computer is no offence, it is not slow for me and has not been, only every once in a blue moon but what doesn't f over every now and then? . Also, your accounts as easy to hack as you let it be. It also makes thing's easier to keep track of, if I got games retail say the disk breaks, gets to dusty something similar, then what? Nothing I'm screwed. Also Spartan regarding Cod, they chose to not use dedicated servers, not steam. They also chose VAC which is only good with dedicated servers. It was a stupid move to make a lazy console port for the pc and now activision and what's left of IW is paying for it.
