    I think I have like, zero games on Steam that require me to have an active internet connection, and many of them don't even require Steam be open.

    This was a few years ago, and I was so put off by it, I've avoided steam since. Maybe it's better now, but my first impression was terrible, and as they say, you only get one first impression. The next time I'd try steam would be if there was some game I desperately wanted that required it. When that happens I'll give it another chance, I suppose.

    If the primary concern of the devs was to squeeze as much cash out of each purchase as possible they would have never released it on Steam.

    Instead they got massive exposure and probably widened their audience by an incredible margin, as well as received top-notch hosting, for what is likely a relatively small take of the profits.  If Steam weren't lucrative for the developer people wouldn't have flooded it with games.

    Fair enough. If it had only been on steam, I'd never have bought it at all, come to think of it. I had to get steam with E:TW or something, and made a point of never looking at it because I was annoyed at having to connect to steam for a game that was physically in my hands.

    they said they would've if they could've ! and really, who doesent use steam? its so common, i dont see why anyone would have any excuse too not use it.

    I almost never use steam (some games I bought disks of required it), and don't plan to. Why would you elect to use steam, when it is entirely unnecessary?
