Games for Windows LIVE needs to crawl in to a corner and die. It's brought nothing but problems for us PC gamers. I can't even play GTA IV online any more because it won't let me log in to my LIVE account.

It's fast, simple, reliable and best of all, you can buy games off Steam for cheaper than retail. The largest publishers and developers already support Steam (EA, Activision, THQ, Codemasters, 2K Games, Bethesda, Capcom, Eidos, iD Software, Ubisoft, and of course Valve itself. Steam is already leading the digital content revolution. With 20 Million Steam users, it's going to be here a looooong time.
