GamerFitNation's Gregory Laporte talks about his first time using steam and why he likes it.
Stream looks awesome
A water stream? A particle stream? A slipstream? A jet stream? DO TELL WHAT KIND OF STREAM!?
Love steam. I probably use it more than anything else. =)
there's nothing that really competes with it so why use anything else... origin is no where near it ill be launching bf3 threw origin thats about all that will be good for
Steam is amazing. The whole environment that Valve created is superb. For some reason EA's Origin seems to be trying too hard. Their deals are just awesome. For example, as of this very moment you can buy their THQ Hit Collection that includes the following games: -S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl -Titan Quest -Titan Quest - Immortal Throne -Company of Heroes -Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts -Saints Row 2 -Warhammer® 40,000™: Dawn of War® II -Warhammer® 40,000: Dawn of War® II: Chaos Rising -Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II: Retribution -Metro 2033 -Darksiders™ -Homefront -Red Faction®: Armageddon™ -Red Faction Guerrilla -MX vs ATV Reflex All of these 15 games for a mere $49.99! I've wanted to play some games that I never got around to playing (like RF Armageddon, MX vs ATV and Homefront) so this gave me a chance to get them really cheap. But how can you resist such a deal like this?!?
This kind of combo pack is exactly how I managed to amass such a massive amount of games for peanuts.
Dude!!!! We have so much catching up to do! I'll break you in easy :)
First time using steam was Super Meat Boy for $7.50. Some of the best $7.50 I ever spent.
Hehe, the day I started using Steam wasn't anything special for me, being a console user I stick to that, only turn to Steam for PC only games.
if i was a pc gamer (meaning if i had a pc or laptop that was good enough to play games) id use the hell out of Steam. but alas =(
youve missed out on a lot of great deals
first thing i downloaded after getting my gaming pc last summer, over 40 games in my library.
Lol over 90 for me... And except for new titles, probably haven't paid over $15 for a game lol..I love it.
Me too, I have a lot of big titles, eg: just cause 2, metro 2033 and crysis maximum edition and haven't spent over $10 on any game. I lobe it
Have about 20 steam games all retail versions never purchased a game online.
Still havent made the leap to pc gaming yet. Half life is the series that i think will get me to eventually. My list of already realased games on the 360/ps3 is currently at 93 games. I have gamefly & have steadly made progress through them, ive gotten 85 games from gamefly now. So eventually i will run out of console games & i guess steam will be where i go next. Personally the best decision ive ever made for my gaming life is/was gamefly. Over $3500.00 worth of games ive played from them so far.
love steam,its not exactly right to the developers or publishers if we rent and buy used games for movies i don't care but being a gamer is something im proud of
I have brought 122 games on Steam over a three years period. 122 games!!! A total number PS3 games that I own in that same time span? 13. Why such a disparity in games owned? The vast majority of games were brought from Steam sales where they're 75% off. Once I get used to paying $5 for the likes of Bad Company 2 and Batman GOTY edition, paying retail price for PS3 games make me wanna throw up. In this economy I'm going to avoid paying full retail whenever possible and Steam is the way to go.
I have 125 Steam games, begining with Alien Vs. Predator 2011 (was $5) and ending with Wings of Prey (also $5) The price range of my purchases runs from $1.50 (max payne 1 and 2 and puzzle quest) up to around $30 (Dawn of War 2 bundle, Shogun 2, Disiples 3 and a few others I splurdged on....lol....splurdged on) The savings I have netted afford me the ability to build 2 new gaming rigs if I felt like it! (I don't need to, the twin 570's and i-7 2600 is MURDERING everything I throw at it! I love you steam! OOhhh did you know the actual reason gabe newell invented steam? http://verydemotivational.m... Sorry Gabe, you are the BESTEST!!!
There are lots of bargains on Steam, but most new games can be purchased cheaper on disc. I saw Rage for £17.99 on disc the other day, its £29.99 on Steam. Not sure why that is.
First impressions are important. Its the #1 reason I am loyal to steam. The #2 reason is they don't get between me and my game (looking at you MS) and they don't try charge extra for keeping my games longer than six months (looking at you EA) It was simple, the first impression was great and they maintained it the whole time. I haven't used Origin, but my first impression of EA was them wanting to charge extra to allow me to have the ability to download a game for longer than six months. Got as far as the checkout page and never went back. GFWL gave me hope at first, then it wanted to update. Which means kicking me out of the game, then waiting for it to finish. Because you have to update to sign in and sign in to save the game. Maybe its a coincidence, but I swear, Steam has always asked me to restart for its update the very moment I don't want to play a game and won't mind waiting a few seconds for it to restart. Valve never purchased my loyalty. It wasn't the deals that kept loyal, though that was a nice incentive. They made it easy to buy digital software and got the hell out of the way when I wanted to play it. In my experience they have never done different.
Steam winter and summer sales are delicious
