Good thing the only games I have on Steam were free.


For a while I have wondered why they do this for many of their own games, realized it is likely to keep those games alive enough that they kind still find other ways to profit off of them besides the direct sale of them...like those TF2 hats or whatever, do they sell those?


Yes, they sell those and people buy them for ridiculous prices. Recently I sold my tf2 backpack for 150 dollars paypal to some people who want more hats ^_^.

I've grown to hate Steam. So, so much.

I hate digital copies to begin with.
I hate that it's required for some hard copies. (ie; Skyrim)

And I hate their fucking deals.

They're so irresistible, I can't not throw money at my computer screen.
