With a little persuasion from my boyfriend, other than letting Steam speak for itself, I’ve decided to join the crowd and sign up for Steam.
First off, it’s free to join, the only thing that isn’t free are the games, but they’re cheaper on Steam anyways than buying the disc at the store. They also have sales every few months or so where you can buy games at a discount, so it’s pretty cheap.
The second reason is, it’s on the computer. If you’re a gamer, you know, PC is the Lord of Game Hosting. The graphics are better on the computer, the games run better on the computer; the whole experience is better on the computer (especially Skyrim, BioShock, and Borderlands.) Besides that, expansions are pretty cheap too on Steam, not they aren’t cheap for Xbox too, but it’s just easier to buy the expansions on Steam and have it right there. The only downsides: Steam usually gets expansions/add-ons after Xbox and the problem with the saves not loading right on different computers, I think the experience will be overall more enjoyable.
Thirdly, games. I love games, I love gaming (not so much so that it’s my whole life and priority), but with Steam, it’s easy to browse through and see what kind of games look appealing to me. Rather than having to look up a million reviews so I can see what I’m supposed to look forward to in the game, I can just see the top selling games on the platform and decide ‘yes’ or ‘no.’
My final reason: I’m hoping to possibly get better screenshots instead of taking a picture with my phone. I’d like to have An Oblivion Tale played on the computer to get better picture, but if worse comes to worst, it’s back to the Xbox.
What are your thoughts on joining Steam? If you have a Steam account, what do you like or not like about the platform?
