What I dont understand why is Steam charge more on PC games than high street retailers and digital retailers?
i buy my games off amazon.

they deliver before steam normally unlocks the game

its cheaper normally

retail

they refund if the game is ****e

Now, if I need to format, I can't just grab the box off the shelf and reinstall it that way.
Why would you take the time to reinstall when you can just backup your steam copy? Super simple. And what redeemed said.
