Never out of some protest, but if it's not on Steam chances are I won't buy it because I hate having a dozen different programs on my computer to play my games. I already got Impulse for Sins of a Solar Empire and GFWL for the 2-3 crappy games that require them. Three is my limit and I refuse to install and spread my games out even more. I won't, for example, be buying Battlefield 3, and any future EA games that follow suit, because it's not on Steam. It's their choice to do what they want with their games, but if they don't put it on Steam I won't be buying it.

What are some things that today we consider only in the realm of Science Fiction that you believe might become Science Fact within our life times. Not what you hope, but what you think is actually possible. Some of mine would be:
Under/Above Water Cities- While the underwater city aspect may be a bit further along, I think man made floating cities are a possibility. We are already creating man made islands in places like Japan, Canada and parts of the Middle East. So it wouldn't surprise me to see it happen. As well, the closer we get to colonizing other planets the reality of needing to build and develop air tight living conditions will become important, and on earth the best place to simulate and test in that kind of environment is under water. So I could easily see an industry being formed around this kind of thing in conjunction with testing for the above mentioned.
Jet Packs- If you got a spare $100,000 sitting around burning a hole in your pocket you can actually buy a jetpack right now that are being made by some hobbyists. However, they are extremely loud and don't last for very long in their current incarnation. However, I can see a near future where they develop ways to make the things more affordable for the average person, and last longer to boot. Assuming laws don't get in the way of owning these when they become affordable to the average person anyway. As they no doubt will once some idiot attaches his 3 year old to one and kills it.
So what are some things that you think may become science fact in our life times? Doesn't even have to be some super fantastical things like the above mentioned, but maybe something simple like paper thin monitors, clothing that light up and plays music, or even personal sex bots.
Anyway, let the haters hate as far as the ER is concerned. As long as the ER isn't just Jeff sitting there bitching and moaning the entire time because he doesn't want to do another ER then I will watch it.
The idea of the Vinny/Dave PC talk has me really excited, but I really hope it's not a members only thing, or it's members only for a week then everyone gets it for free, because spreading the word of small PC games is something I want to be shared with the largest number of people out there possible. Not just the kids that can afford $50.
Wait a day or two after. That way when it runs out and next years is ready to roll around you will have time to see what they are adding next year.
Only when I used to get gift cards from relatives around my birthday and/or Christmas time. I told them to just give me cash, because they never know what to get me. I buy everything on Steam game wise anyway.
