Good... bad?

I think steam is a load of balls... it dosent save favorite servers or game controlls... meaning i have to re-set them EVERY time.

Also, i had to buy my OWN copy of a few games cause i couldent re-install it on my pc.

I actually find Steam really helpful when It comes to organizing games, and updating them and such.

As for your problems, I havn't experienced any of them yet, so Steam is still great to me.

I've had no problems with it.

It eats up my RAM like hell, but that's to be expected.

I wouldn't mind that if i had 512 mb RAM, but it lags like hell on my shitty 256 MB.

It deletes my favourites from time to time, but i have only one on there, and i can easily remember their website to get their IP address.

Why isn't there a "It's not good, but not bad" option?

anyone that knows me knows how much steam ****ed me up... or atleast my computer.

Twice, not once, but twice, after uninstalling steam and sierra utilities, my whole hard drive got completely erased. I hate Valve for makin steam their foundation for games.

Its basically a utility Valve use to sell there games on, and its also a client program for you that organizes your games and such. I'll put some screenshots on, 2 secs.

Steam is a program that controls products that are made from Valve or something.
I have it, but i can't explain things well.
Also, Redeye posted some screenies of Steam.

Yeah, but if you gotta pay for the stuff on it, it isnt much good of a p2p client, now is it? I'll stick with bittorrent if you don't mind...

Who said it was for P2P? I r confused.

Though you'd get teh stuff cheaper if you want to go buy it somewhere else instead of steam.

But stick to torrenting files. It be much better.

Its not bad, its easier than having them all bunged onto your desktop. You'd have like 40 fricken icons. Anyway, works fine on my 1024mb of ram. Muahaha. I love Steam games. :)

Steam is great. I love the fact that I can install games from pretty much anywhere and play them on my many computers using just my account. It owns the balls out of saving CDs.
