So for a few years now I have had this vendetta against steam, I always thought it was unnecessary and wasted my time and space. I installed it for the first time in about 18 months yesterday and I'm not completely sold... yet. I signed up for the free MW2 weekend, I started preloading it last night and when it got to around 50% I went to bed, turning off my computer. I come on this morning and notice it's started the download again from 0% and it's now 11GB instead of 4... well thanks for that. Then I launch a steam game and it took much longer for the game to start than the none steam version that I have been using for a long time. Game performance is no different however but this way I get to play online, I'm willing to put up with Steam for online racing.
So I checked out the store, there are a lot of games that I'd like to play but they are much more expensive than I can get the solid copies elsewhere. Do people really pay for the convenience? I mean seriously, £40 for MW2?
