DUke Nukem Forever. yes, I DID IT
What was the First Game You Bought on Steam?
Yeah like most in this thread the first game I ever purchased that required Steam on my PC was Half-Life 2. I would probably guess that the first game I ever bought in the Steam store was World of Goo, which to this day I have never beaten despite enjoying many of the levels I played through.
Mine was Psychonauts if you don't include the Orange Box that started it all. Actually, I had HL2 way before the Orange Box, but didn't realize you could gift extra copies so I gave my old steam account to a friend and started a new one with the Orange Box. Owell, I think after more than 140 games its a bit too late to trade accounts back :P
Bought though Steam: Super Meat Boy, followed by Poker Night at the Inventory. The latter was the better purchase. This was late in 2010, but I'd only gotten my first credit card then. I'm sure before that I had family members buying and gifting me stuff, I just don't know where to see that history.
I had my free Steam Account for quite a while to play the free games (Alien Swarm, Half-Life 2: Deathmatch), but I finally gave in when Super Meat Boy was $5 on the 2010 Christmas Sale. And then I added The Orange Box, and some indie packs, and the games kept piling onto my cart...
Edit: Oops, SMB was $3.75, not $5.
