i bought tf2 from a local retailer less than a month ago because it was both more convenient and cheaper than downloading from steam (i say more convenient because i didnt have to wait on a download nor weigh down the connection my boyfriend shares with me). if you sell it they will come

I bought the Orange Box because I couldn’t get Steam to work otherwise. Still don’t know why installing from a disk worked where installing from multiple downloads wouldn’t, but hey, Half-Life 2 and Portal. Fair deal, imo.

I LOVE POSTING ON FORUMWARZ!

­I honestly think that most game companies should go through steam, not just because of the security of it, but you can take it pretty much anywhere, and it’s easy to join the games your friends are playing. It’s a great system.

Most retail stores don’t even keep stock of PC games anymore. I had to go to a Fry’s Electronics to get TF2.

I think the big advantage for Steam is Valve can have special game promotions like Free Portal or $.25 Half-Life 2, but that hardly hurts retailers of other games.

Those things about steam are what make it a threat to similar retailers. The argument is backwards in relation to the topic.

Don’t get me wrong, though. I have nothing against Steam. They found a functioning, profitable business model and are using the **** out of it. Everyone else is just ****ed they didn’t think of it first.

retail outlets for games will become obsolete in the future anyways, i wish ALL new (and older) releases were downloadable on the PC or console. Corporate greed holding back what people actually WANT at its finest.
