Wow...that's unfortunate. :( I have issue with Steam in general. I don't like that you're forced to be on-line to play a single player game. I don't like how it updates, because it can potentially crash whatever you're running if it decides it needs more hardware resources to finish working. I can see the merit in having an on-line system by which you can add new games with just a few button clicks - but I generally think it's more trouble than it's worth. Also...I'm a big fan of having the disk & the cover art & such. Honestly...the only reason that I've seen to bother with steam is to play Portal. If it weren't sacrilege to remove Portal from my computer, Steam would be gone faster than you can say, "Add/Remove Programs."
Steam dosnt force you to play while online... You can use steam while offline.....
Steam is currently my favored store for buying games... dont even have to find a no-cd fix anymore :)
No disc, is glory :P
