Valve’s Steam Seems Like a Dream

In the great span of things, there are only a few companies that come to mind when considering the breadth to which online content has flooded our homes and lives: Google, Facebook, and, for gamers the world over, Valve’s Steam.

Steam is the best network out there. and you don't have to pay $60 a year....

I cannot express my love for Steam enough.

I got:

Assassins Creed Revelations

Batman Arkham City

Crysis pack (Crysis, Crysis Wars, Crysis Warhead, Crysis 2 maximum edition)

Left for Dead 2

Max Payne 3

Saints Row the third

Sins of a solar Empire: rebillion

All for just about £70 and to think a few of those games about 5 months back to get two of them on retail would have cost me that much.

Now i jsut have to quit my job and bum out because most of these are going to make my face melt with playtime.

And not to mention I had some cheeky fella earlier trying to say to me I pay the same price for games as they do on yeah buddy.

I just got back into PC gaming after a long absence and I gotta say, I am amazed by Steam. I didn't think I could love Valve any more but they found a way.

During the Summer Sale I bought:

- Crysis 2 Maximum Edition $19.00 (50% off)
- FEAR 3 $5.00 (75% off)
- The Darkness 2 $12.49 (75% off)
- The Witcher 2 $15.99 (66% off)
- Batman: Arkham City $10.19 (66% off)

Today I bought:

- Transformers: War for Cybertron $7.50 (75% off)

You just can't beat Steam. I wish the Playstation Store had deals like these without the need for a subscription (PS+)

Both services are great, they both have something(s) that make them better than their unmentioned rival service and they both have something in common... They're FREE, and great to use for example one gives you the best discounts, discounts of up to 75%, but I believe I seen a game on discount at 80% off, and there are great free to play titles 60 bucks can get a person about 7. great games.... the other one you get free games(good ones at that), 1hr-trials, early access to betas, and discounts... So there's really no real gamer should not like Steam and SEN (formally known as PSN)

Oh please, dont even mention SEN next to Steam. Steam is amazing.

Those games that you call free from SEN come with PSN+ and that is charged. With Steam you really do get free games, there is no catch there. Amazing games like TF2, Dota 2 and many others are free on Steam.

Between Steam and SEN there is no contest, Steam wins hands down.


Even if SEN did have those prices, at the end of the gen, you would have no gaurantee the next console will play your games. With PC whenever u decide to upgrade, you can rest assured your library isnt going anywhere, its yours to keep.

Again this just makes console gaming look like a joke compared to PC.

hey iggy I was comparing the both of them to xbox live dingus, read between the lines... of course steam is better than SEN.

Steam is so wonderful. It's so strange that a company as rich as Valve hasn't gone corrupt yet. Lol. I love Gabe Newell!
