Help me fix Steam! Tags: PC gaming Portal Steam Video Games Last response: June 18, 2012 1:09 PM in Video Games Share lumphy101 April 14, 2012 2:36:22 PM I just re-installed Steam, and downloaded Portal, along with Portal 2. I click the "Play" button and it says "Preparing to Launch Portal." Then nothing happens. Yet it says I played it that day if I click it. PLEASE HELP! -Anonymous More about : fix steam jtl2901 June 16, 2012 2:10:26 PM My suggestion, don't use steam, use Origin instead. I've had nothing but problems with Steam, especially with the offline mode, Origin is much easier to use and seems to be much more stable. Just my opinion. jtl2901 June 16, 2012 2:30:06 PM Is Origin only for EA Games? Just seems like I've had a really hard time with Steam.
