... and thus humanity rolls forward in another step on their road of evolution... and what I just typed makes no sense whatsoever.
road of devolution*
(nothing against Steam and Valve, but being too lazy to pick up a CD is a bit too much :D)
- As soon as the disk got scratched the game you paid for was useless,
- The hassle of having to swap disks to play different games,
- If you live in some remote corner of the planet you had to wait even months after release to play a newer game,
- Internet downloads (such as Steam's) do not pay customs,
- All game data being in the hard drive and no slow optical drive reads allow for faster loading times,
- And in the process, Steam makes it so easy to install a game you don't even have to input a *CD* key.
This does sound rather Steam fanboy-ish (though these are all facts), but given Steam's the most reliable way to buy legit games at a non-wallet shattering price where I live... I'm kind of biased.
Disk warping from overuse is a problem too. I have 3 copies of Battlefield 2142 because the disk warped so often
Meh, reasonable biases though. The only issue I have though is how you're only allowed to install your games on a limited amount of devices. Never had that problem with CDs.
Also, when your (or in rare cases, valves) internet is down, and you're locked out of half your installed games. Most you can just open the .exe in the steam folder though.
Also, games with mandatory updates.
god dammit Rocket-Banana, you ruined the joke
