Never realised I registered so early for steam on 13th September. I didn't even play much CS or HLTDM.

I'm a steam member since 8 September 2005 and own 1064 games so far with about 60 another copies of those games (left over from bundles) activated on another steam account.

 

You my friend are keeping Steam alive! :woot:  That's a lot of games! I have 8.

The reason I don't use it is because I find it's still a little clunky. Meaning that it does freeze sometimes for me, not too sure maybe it's because i'm using a first gen i7. ALSO i guess i think of it only as a game launcher so to me, I want my game launcher to be very fast, fluid and ultra responsive.

 

and again i'm not saying Steam isn't that, but I just want a little fine tuning done to it :D

It's very nostalgic to be honest. :blush:

 

Been a member since Dec. 28th, 2004. I remember getting HL² a couple days after Christmas so it only makes sense that I installed it then. It's been a long and wonderful ride.

Oh, the nostalgia. I first used Steam when I played Counter-Strike 1.6. I remember installing it about a week after Steam was first released. Actually, I remember using the Steam beta with a different account and later forgetting the password. I accepted it with open arms because I knew it was the future. Some of my friends claimed that Steam would die off in a year and we'd go back to installing games from a disc. They couldn't have been more wrong.

I'm weird.... I actually prefer origin to steam for some reason now.
