Advocate for Steam!

Postby DrRelic » Sat Jan 04, 2014 1:04 pm

A friend of mine asked me about games and the best way to collect them. I'm a big fan and advocate for cloud based installers so starting with StarCraft 1 and 2 through Blizzard's site and starting collecting through Steam I love that I can have my laptop and desktop both installed with Steam and installing games have never been so easy! So that being said I love watching Steam for deals on games and try to pick up the ones on my wishlist with discounts galore!

My story....

I own 77 games on my Steam account.

69 of those are compatible with my Mac.

I've spent $0 through all my Steam transactions.

All the games I have obtained have been through Humble Bundles, or Steam giveaways.

I've been thinking I need to put some money into my Steam wallet, though....

Steam is great! Bless the bundles, the sales, and trading. Humble Bundle and Groupees are my favorite bundle providers.

I probably don't have the biggest library, but it's nothing small at 234 games now.

I have the smallest library here, and some of it is junk (Star Wars Galaxies)

Not even remotely.
I accrue books and games faster than I can consume. I guess I'm a collector of sorts.

I can relate completely. There are so many games that I just absolutely adore... but still have never, ever finished. I have more games on my list of "intend to finish" than "already finished." But I imagine I'm not alone in that boat....

That sounds like me and ammo. I don't think I have any unread books lying around and few games unbeat, but if someone invites me shooting I never have enough ammo...ignoring the couple thousand rounds I do have.

Having too much ammunition is like having too much money. Even if you don't have enough time to use it all, it's good to have... just in case. :wink:

I horde ammo due to an idiot-facilitated ammo shortage around here.

And yes, Oro, I plan on getting my own handgun with a caliber that isn't 9mm :P (you were the one who didn't care for the caliber, right?)

I also have a slightly PG-13 tumblr that you may not enjoy

It's that way here. I haven't seen a fresh box of .22LR in ages. I rarely see .45 but they card here which is stupid <_<

Also my next gun is probably a 9mm so I shouldn't say anything <_<



*cough*

But yeah Steam rocks.
