So I was looking around the web and say an offer that was too good to be true. If you sign up for a new steam account you can receive
Half-Life 2: Lost Coast and Half-Life 2: Deathmatch for free.

Well...if you don't have those already, you probably don't care about games.

Indeed.  I didn't start it. :P

I think the Nvidia deal is the better one of the two.  You get Peggle EXTREEEME as well.

Statistics. seeing how much they will lose by giving those games away as incentives, while seeing the probability of new accounts buying games.

Don't have steam and don't really plan on making an account any time soon. Haven't had a desktop capable of running games in years, which is probably the reason why.

Is your life really so desperate that you're looking for a singular occurrence to replicated everywhere you plan to be?

@Enigma777:  I think he's talking about why VALVe chooses to give games away, IronicAvatarCleverPerson.

I signed up when they were offering Portal for free. Much better deal IMO...until I realize how much shit I've impulse bought.

@SeriouslyNow: Childish, I was reminded of Reddit's "occurrence" under an hour ago, figured I would post a harmless comment. Is your life really so deplorable that you're looking to insult people just to inflate your online ego?
