I am not trolling. I am genuinely interested to understand why so many people seem to be so enamoured with Steam. On these very forums, we have read quite a few times phrases like "I would not buy the game from anywhere else than Steam". More generally, the posts by Steam ooze with a passion for that platform. I have bought a few games on Steam but as far as I am concerned, this is just another distribution channel. I also bought from GOG, GameTree Mac, or directly from Indie developers. So really, I would really like somebody to educate me about what I have been missing for so long about Steam.
