I do no how to spell DA. If you notice on the keyboard the h is next to the G. It is called hitting 2 keys with one finger. I knew it was my mistake and that is why I posted my reply to clear things up. You can get back to your summer school home work now.

Don't say such nasty stuff.

Steam sucks, everyone knows it and you're not funny, their forums are filled with Steam haters, every magazine I know discredits it and always asks if you can install "without" Steam. That to me assures me everyone feels the same.

Steam sucks.

Of course you can be a sheep like everyone and swallow whatever they shove down your throat. However, I am different. Games should be sold in boxes on store shelves without any overhead garbage to ensure I am not a thief.

I don't like Steam either.

As for problems connecting I know I had serious problems with CSS even though I had the right set of ports open and forwarded in my Netgear. The server browser would constantly hang up on me and have problems connecting to servers. Removed the router and everything was fine.

Never had an issue with STEAM and clearly it isn't the evil thing many made it out to be. This thread on the other hand, much like any discussion of STEAM, really shows how mis-informed and confused many gamers are.

Yeah your so different so you had to go and point out forum objections to it and every magazine that you know hates it... must be some obscure magazines since PC Gamer, PC Gaming World, EGM and Game Informer have praised it and valves work with smaller developers.

You do know that the people who bitch are usually in the minority and make the most noise right? Valves sales prove that the steam distrobution method is working and is liked. If SOOOOO many people hated it then the titles on it wouldn't be selling so well...

Oh and if everyone "knows" that steam sucks then how come the majority of posts here don't agree with that...

Most people don't have strong emotions about steam. People put up with steam, just as they put up with unskippable trailers on DVDs, or commercials at a movie theater.
