It was a valuable service at a time when PC games didn't have a centralised launcher system. Now it's a bit overbearing.

Still, the service it's given to PC cannot be understated. I highly doubt PC gaming would be growing like it has been without Steam.

No. As a gamer I feel that steam is just too great a risk and has too much potential to damage my PC.

I use gas to heat my apartment.

It use to be great and i couldn't imagine being on a PC without it.

These days, if given a choice i don't get games on it. Unfortunately i don't get that choice as much as i would like.

That said, i have it.

Steam sucks. It's a horrible service and the complete opposite of what PC gaming is all about.

Being on PC is about being fluid and de-centralized. Not stuck on any one os like the console experience.

Ironically however, the console services of PSN or Live fair much better than Steam, as at least everyone there is running the same equipment and being regulated in the same fashion, its a crappy albeit even playing field.

Not so on Steam, which is like a junkyard. Any hillbilly peasant with a joke of a PC can log in and start playing. Ruining multi-player games and hacking / lagging their way to victory.

Most developers aware of the lack of quality control on Valve's end are not going to start spending money on policing their games and I could go on and on about the bloatware that some people dare to call games that infest Steam's market.

It's one thing to be a Rodeo Drive business and another to be a flea market. Steam is a flea market which attracts fleas. I would really prefer publishers and developers to release their own games via their own client. I'd even pay a subscription or extra for that. All so I could avoid the masses of filth on Steam.
