Can't say I ever remember Steam games installing .NET Framework... mostly just DirectX and Visual C++ but to answer your question
Well if an app requires it, it would be a failure of the developer to not have it install. So the installers all install it, I'm pretty sure it's like DirectX, it will only update/install the outdated components.
New game I purchased just installed .NET. I know obviously if a game needs it it should install, I'm just wondering why each game installs DirectX/Visual C++ when I install them even though I already have them on my system.
