it's unfortunate that despite this, I don't like having to play games I bought (even on disc) on Steam...like when I rushed out to buy HL2 on release..
it's just another irritating requirement, and they charge a load for online purchase too, with VAT on top?! how can you charge VAT on a download? pssh..

That will depend on were you live at least and who you buy of. For example Newegg we don't get charged tax. BUT one thing for sure D2D we do..

Fallout 3 (Pre-Order) $49.95
Tax $3.50
Total $53.45

And VAT would be on top of that too. And back 6 year ago PC games were £30 thats more like $60. So £30.

All though there is a kick ass heath system in the UK and if some one says it's not kick ass trying living with out one as you don't know till you lose it.

true, NHS is helpful enough, but it sure is irritating that, upon buying my friend CS:S, I then had to pay something like $8 extra in tax, which although not so much, it threw me off, I really didn't expect it and had to re-balance my debit account to be able to afford it..sigh

1. you would pay the same tax in a store,
2. You don't have tp spend gas money.
3. You get auto updates/ and can't lose the cd,

Tax is government's fault, not steams.

Releasing the original Multiplayer F.E.A.R Combat ruined the online Fear community. Its almost non-existant. Most of those that still play the game like to exploit glitches in the game that developers failed to address. Actually the games support was almost non-existant.

Releasing F.E.A.R 2 online for download should help with the piracy, and will surely invite more morons to play the game. F.E.A.R had so much potential. It could have easily taken over every single first person shooter game and pushed first person shooters to the cutting edge of professional gameplay. I really do hope the game devs dont stop supporting F.E.A.R 2 aswell.

Steam is the worst concept ever. 15 Million people forced to make an account. <--< Seems to me like theres something majorly wrong with the individual identification process that can be easily resolved without 3rd party trojans. <--< Tax that.
If you own the game, you should own the game!
If you want to demo the game, rent it, or try your free download.

Steams anti-cheat protocols suck big time. So much for F.E.A.R.
