Sigh, yes I knew Steam existed but i never suspected it would be required for a single player game that I bought with a disc. I thought Steam was just a discount download service mostly for older games. And Origin, GFWL, Rockstar Social? I don't know what you mean. I've played Origin games in the past but there wasn't anything like Steam there.

But its more like, you do know what goes in a microwave and what does not. But then you buy the same product you've been buying and only when you go to eat it do you find out that you can't microwave it this time. Yes it says it on the package, but why would you bother to read it? And your oven only works sometimes so you have to put off lunch until it does.It's a bit like … Someone is putting something into an microwave oven. How is the person supposed to know that some things must NOT be put and "heated" (however this ominous "heating" process works) into the oven ? That's tech.
Actually that isn't entirely true, I did buy GTA4 via Steam last year, only played it once, but didn't have trouble with Steam then. I had forgotten about that.All i knew about Steam last year was a guy I work with, whenever we discussed a less than brand new game, he'd be "Oh you can get that on Steam on sale right now". And I'd say "why pay to download something, and its too big, would take a week on my slow DSL"
As the lines continue to blur between them, and PC gaming experience continues to deteriorate I may not be as upset as I have been to see the continual decline of PC gaming.
I think i'm just getting tired of the tech. I'm considering changing careers to be honest, except i'm probably too old. […] At home, I'd rather play a game than read about it on the net, or waste time troubleshooting like I was still at work.
reminds of how lots of people in the USSR (not all) liked communism and had there ideals that they had grown up with. Just like how you have your own ideals that you have grown up and in someone (most likely) make you not want to install free steam that large portion of people have already gotten. Then when the USSR dies all the people that were like Communism is the best were then all like "oh capitalism seems so much better. Boy was I wrong" Are they idiots too?Unlike the idiot Sackichop and anyone else who was forced to Join but now loves it. Well the world is full of idiots!
