I haven't bought HL2 due to steam, but I figure if it pisses such an idiot off that it can't be all
bad. I plan on buying it next time I see it on sale.

Not quite all the awards.............

I never understood what the whole fuss about steam is, and I have been
using it since CS1.6 first came out!

Were it not for steam, I would be stuffed playing any of the half life
series. Shortly after registering my game on steam, I lost the
CD/serial number from the original Half Life CD's, as well as my
computer in the process. (Call it a family member scrapping the wrong
equipment)

With Steam. I download the installer, few MB. I pop in my e-mail and
boom, I can download any of the games.

The only bad thing about steam, is that if you register your Half-Life
account to receive Half-Life2 Silver/Gold Package, you can no longer
create a new Steam ID with the old Half Life package. But since the
Old Half-Life Package costs about £5 in the shops, it is a non issue.

Wining? ;-)

C


PS I think HL2 has a fantastic engine, but is waaaaaay overhyped as a
*game*. I found it so boring, linear and with so contrived puzzles that I
uninstalled it in disgust.

Now you are just getting out of control. None of that was informative.
Fanatically posting to many newsgroups with your opinions as though they
were facts puts you in the category with other internet crazys like Dave
Hayes.

Please stop

Well, I'm not a fanatic/troll like the original poster, but I have a few
issues with it - it keeps freezing, it slows my PC to a crawl, even on
broadband it takes forever to update so I dread to think how dial-up users
will fare...

For dial-up users, that'll take three months per game. ;)

Actually they missed out on one category - Gabe Newell failed utterly to

It's been posted in here a few times. For some users, especially those
with hi-speed, it's pretty painless. However, there's people in some
countries that only have dial-up and they 'pay by the min' to be online.
There's other issues, but I'll leave it up to difool (aka sayno2steam) to
jump in and: add, modify, correct me, and provide his take on it.

You missed a couple.

Most likely to be currently be an escapee from an institution:
sayNO2steam

Most likely to make Derek Smart seem like a polite and reasonable
person.

i'm sick of the industry giving valve all the prizes cause what
they want is the monopolistic plan steam is applying to pc games!

nobody defends us!
nobody defends pc gamers!
nobody defends our consumer rights!
its completely despairing seeing how easy valve is implementing
the most damaging, monopolistic against consumer rights plan in
pc games and nobody does anything about it!

so mr gandalf answer me please WHO WILL STOP VALVE?????

Definetly "us" will. If "us" were enough people to make a difference then
"us" would stop valve. But spewing load after load of posts trying to turn
everyone here into your "us" is doing nothing more than pissing off enough
people to get you put in the nutcase category. You would improve your case
quite abit if you post more information and do it less often.

Otherwise your with the guy who tells us the holocost never happened and
has to get a new account every month in order to do it. Or the KKK folk. Or
the Freedom Knights who feel that trolling equals freedom of speech. They
all believe and they all feel that they represent the rest of us no matter
how many times they are told different.

I'd like to thank you for this post. To hear that you're starting to
wear down and getting tired of this gives us all hope that one day it
might be over.
I guess we just have to be persistant and keep harassing you at every
post. Thanks again. :)
