Steam allows you to purchase and immediately download games at a whim. No more traveling to and from the store.
Another added plus of Steam is the special sales Steam runs. Weekend sales, Developer sales, Midweek Madness sales, and their big Summer sale. All of these knock huge chunks off the normal asking price. The Steam Summer Sale I have seen knock up to 80% off of the normal price for even AAA games. Wait until the summer sale begins, and you can spend $50, and purchase multiple AAA and AA games.
By the by, the Steam Summer Sale is not far away. Usually that sale runs somewhere in June, July, or August. Very much worth catching.
Steam accounts are free to make.PSIII wrote:I've always had bad luck with PC games, be it video cards, drivers, crashes, games never launching, etc. I've also always had nice computers, too.
That is more than likely due to the poor sate in which even AAA titles are released now. Batman: Arkham Asylum was unplayable at launch. Several other games have been the same way.
BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite had problems crashing, and they still do. Thankfully, there is almost always a guide on Steam, created by a fellow Steam user, which helps you solve most of the problems.

How about downloading the digital copies from Amazon?
If Steam were ever to cease to exist, how would that effect what you bought from them? I know it's far-fetched, but crazier things have happened.

I got STEAM because I was looking to play an older game and I knew hassling with emulators and other factors was just going to be a pain.
I got Steam (which is at no cost) and paid the few dollars for Master of Orion 2.
I've considered getting Fallout 2 but haven't done so yet.
