Let’s be clear; my past is not unblemished. That said I always maintained, even in my darkest days, if developers just got wise to the fact that we’d rather get our games instantly over broadband and give them to us in a convenient, fairly priced way I’d go legit in a heartbeat. Then Valve started putting games out on Steam and I bought them. Then everyone started putting games out on Steam and I bought them by the hundreds. I really, really like Steam. I think digital distribution platforms are the way forward.
I can, however, understand why some people worry that the technology might be unreliable. I can understand this because I have used EA’s Origin.
