I’m not against other outlets I’m just not intrigued enough to bother, I get most of my games after launch and on sale so the pricing is never that far off others offers.
I use steam also because I like the community features and I don’t use messenger, facebook or anything like that I just buy my family steam games then they have to have accounts and I can chat to them.
i just link all my non steam games through steam where ther is not an issue that causes a crash.
I’m in no way saying steam is the best as I’m sure there are as many flaws with it as there are good points, for me the biggest is offline mode, I don’t have the net at home when I go to my friends to LAN I often have games update, I know I can turn the feature off but as I stated before I’m lazy.
The other great threat I feel hanging over me is that I own 106 games at around $3000 laid out for myself and gifts for others over 2.5 years
It’s a lot to lose and it only takes getting hacked or a false positive on vac and I have lost all my games.
