It's not a lot of money, but we're less than halfway through the event. Last week I detailed what I consider to be 11 overlooked bargains in the Steam Summer Sale, but I've got all of those games already. Valve, however, has found a way to keep me spending.
Steam is the model that all other digital platforms should strive to imitate but, when it launched as a beta alongside Counter-Strike 1.6 in 2002, I said I would never buy a digital product from Valve's platform in my entire life. I lost: I now have 258 games in my Steam library. Just how did Valve make a piece of software that so utterly and comprehensively annihilates rival platforms such as Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network, GamersGate, and Direct2Drive?"
