Default Re: Retail vs. Steam

For some reason, some games, i.e. those by Rockstar, is not available on Steam in my area but is available as retail (steam hid GTA4 as soon as I signed up and told it that I'm in Malaysia, but the game is sold at stores locally over here). So I guess that's my only choice.

Ninja edit: It seems that R* has vanished off steam completely. It's not even showing when I visited the website. Not sure if it's only my IP or if something is going on.

Otoh, Steam is a great way to get Valve and Indie games.

I'd vote "depends on situation", but that isn't in the list.
