Default Poll regarding Steam users

I just wanted to see what the community at large thinks of Steam, as it seems like there are quite a number of people that either don't have it or choose not to have it for various reasons...

Im trying not to start anything in the way of a argument over whether Steam is good or bad, just want to see its usage.

i have purchased only 3 games that needed STEAM in my PC life
i had with all three proplems, 2 of them i could not install.

I would prefer not to be forced to use STEAM at least during the install, i have already preordered a DVD version
in general, i have nothing against STEAM, and i have no expereince with its "server browser" system.
and, for people who have no proplems with the programm, IF CoD will be avaialble via STEAM, it can be much more easy for them to purchase the game too !

I use STEAM for all my games, including games that weren't published via STEAM , I link them into STEAM so I can access all my games from one app. It's great.

I buy most of my pc games through Steam, and have never had an issue. In terms of digital distribution, I think its the best out there.

I honestly don't see what the big deal is, so many ppl bickering about steam. If you don't like it.. don't use it.

Sure, but what if we have to use it if we want to play Cliffs of Dover...

last game addon i bought on steam last week downloaded at 500-550k per second
its not bad
holds the games you purchase in its games library so you can just re download them if required
only time they really annoyed me was when i bought a game on ebay and when i tried to install said this code is not for your region bla bla so basically i wasted my money
didnt buy any games from steam for about 3 years after that
even now i let alot of games slide that i would of previously bought
i dont think it pays for companys to piss off the people that spend money with them

Then you'll need to install and use Steam, otherwise no CoD.

I've not had any issues with Steam. I view the features it has as a bonus not a reason to not buy a game.

I've used it a couple of times in the past.

I had Red Orchestra, and a couple games I cannot even remember anymore.

I just don't like the idea of not having the disc in my hands. And I had issues with their login system all the time, and well, it does not matter really, as I won't use Steam ever again.
