Is it possible for my brother and I to share a same account to play different games?

E.g. I want to play Black Ops, and he Modern Warfare 2.

Since both games I've registered under my account and my brother is working and doesn't play much but only recently wanted to try out MW2. Was wondering if we could use at the same time.

1) Whether or not both of us can play online at the same time for both different games. As in, I'm playing Black Ops and he MW2 in multiplayer.

2) At the very least can I play offline Black Ops and him playing online MW2 or vice versa?

Two computers can not use the same Steam account at the same time. I can't say whether or not that extends to one using Steam in offline mode or not. You'd have to alternate use of the account between you, to avoid any ban(s) etc.

Each game on your account, is tied to your account only.

Accounts aren't tied to your computer though, so you can use a different computer, transfer the files across (and verify them through Steam, just incase) and use that computer as well. Just not at the same time as another computer.

I don't think so. You can only be logged into your Steam account on one computer at a time.

Unless there's a way to run two instances of Steam at the same time, no.

Furthermore, it wouldn't help Blitz in the slightest. He and his brother would still have to alternate between themselves to use the computer.
