Steam sucks. Sure, it's a good idea, if you have broadband so that you can easily download the patches it force-feeds you, and if the company's server is up, and if the company never goes out of business.

I predict that a decade from now, nobody will be able to install Half-Life 2 without resorting to cracks because Steam will either be long-gone or Valve will no longer support games older than 5 years or so. Even then, where will you get patches for it?

"Steam Powered"? More like "Steam Crippled"
