i used to hate steam. but now i dont mind it. never really had any problems with it. Just annoyances with constant updates and a bit of a resource hog.

Has steam updated recently? If your using a firewall like ZA pro, it will not always recognize an updated program as being the same. If push comes to shove you could always re-install.

I wouldn't mind Steam if it didn't have any Source engine games.

I don't think steam is perfect yet it isn't absolute crap either. and to quote the someone elsewho said this, most games are around 20 dollars. I paid 15 for HL2 and I got a quality online gaming experience. Steam may have its ****-ups some time but it's not total crap.
