Re: Anyone actually buy HL2 not through Steam?

I love Steam as a concept, and the implementation is pretty good too (the bugs some people experienced notwithstanding). Giving people the three option packages to choose from is just brilliant. Why not milk some extra cash from easy spenders with almost no additional effort? Awesome! I also like Steam because I'm sick of the clutter in my apartment and would like to reduce it or at least not add to it. I buy a lot of games and CDs, but once the game is installed or the CD is ripped, I feel myself wanting to add to landfills and get this redundant material stuff outta my life. Steam solves the problem for me. As a developer and a gamer, I really hope Steam catches on!
