The only reason Steam bothers me.
Aye, I remember going to a halloween party with my laptop, all set on playing Amnesia, and lo and behold, I get the message, "would you like to play this in offline mode?" I click 'YES'. And it says "Steam cannot do this."
I'm paraphrasing this of course. And I tested what would happen if I went into offline mode before losing the internet, and merely because I shut off my laptop after doing this, when I tried to play games in offline mode, it STILL wouldn't let me. You have to be online to go offline. That's just the biggest load of bullocks ever.
And THEN, every time I want to play something on my laptop/computer, I ALWAYS have to put in some new code. If it were only the first time I tried it on a different system I'd be fine with it, but that's just another round of bullocks.
I don't like Steam anymore. I used to be like the masses that think it's awesome because of the games it provides, but it's worse than the PS3 when it comes to DRM. By quite a bit.
I haven't checked out GamersGate yet, mainly cause I haven't found something I want to buy off it yet.
