How big is your steam library?
Not including all the Valve stuff, and I mean I have it all, like 6 games. I am not a huge fan of digital distribution, mostly because of DRM issues and having to make sure you are online. And for those 6 games I have bought, they were all Steam deals. I didn't buy one at full price.
I've got a whopping 9 games on Steam, excluding demos. I buy games that are on super-sales that I've been thinking I wanted to buy anyway, or games that manage to be cheap without being on sale. I think I originally installed it with Portal, and my first purchase was Peggle after I saw it was the cheapest way to get the game after I saw a friend playing it (it looked fun -- and it's pretty fun for something so simple).
From there, the Steam sales sometimes catch my eye, or I'll find a demo that's so fun I keep going back to it until I decide to just buy the darned game.
I'm not very comfortable with "Digital Distribution". I don't like using my credit cards online, and I dislike any service that I feel could potentially sever me from my games. If I spend good money on my game, I don't think anyone should be able to take it away from me (disallowing me from using a public multiplayer feature is a little different than disallowing me to play at all). I'm uncomfortable with the prospect of somehow being banned.
" 124 according to my community page. I love it. Steam is solely responsible for my current PC gaming habits. Not sure why my Civ 4 and expansions show up twice. I hope I didn't buy that pack twice... (edit: one is http://store.steampowered.com/app/3900/ and the other is http://store.steampowered.com/app/34440/ that forwards to 3900. weird.) "Mine is 113 (counting the Civ clones. whatever that is.
Also, yes, if it was not for Blizzard games or Steam (or Impulse for Sins of a Solar Empire) I wouldn't play a damn thing on my PC. Steam is totally awesome. In a device that has virtually unlimited space (I can add another hard drive super easy) digital distribution makes all the sense in the world. On my xbox, PS3, or PSP or whatever, I don't like it as much since I would have to delete stuff at some point. Steam also makes it super easy to get games back if you delete them. Unlike other services.
" None. Boxed games ftw! "That's fine and all, if you have the shelfspace for it(especially those xbox-huge old games), but if you're like me and don't care to be a packrat(let's face it, you crack your game and put the disc away somewhere)
it doesn't matter
