Definitely. I don't buy a game unless it is on steam. I hate to have that excess paper garbage.

IMO if you have it, don't buy it on steam

Are there glaring problems with the game that require a patch? Not being flippant or anything, seriously asking as I'm interested in purchasing.

Also, I know this will sound horrible, but how does the game play with a keyboard? For reference, I happily played through NFS: Most Wanted (the last racing game I bought) with a keyboard. ..

You can use a racing wheel or a 360 controller if you have either.

The keyboard plays the game fine, frankly If you've gamed with a keyboard all your life, you are not going to have a problem.

Although I like using controllers cause I get the vibration going on .

Anyone know if Grid supports multiple controllers? I have a separate wheel and pedals ( meaning, they are not connected, Momo Wheel, and Act Labs Pedals )
