its almost perfect... well it was in 2004, but it still looks decent, and even compared to newer games it still pushes what youd expect of a game.
First Steam game I ever bought had to download data on dial up back in the day geez was def worth it... one of the best games ever

I do like Steam though best thing is you can back up your games and put them on external hard drives for piece of mind.

There's not even really a need for that when you can just re-download them at 5megs/sec

Yes but if you didn't have fast internet connection it's ideal to back them up, I download all my games at my dad's house (he has fast internet connection) on my netbook and then put them on my PC at home.

I have my steam folder on a alternate drive from my boot drive and I do like how I can just start up steam manually after a reformat and everything generally works right off the bat. Though it doesn't hurt to clean house every now and then either, especially given the massive number of updates that have become the norm for source engine games.
..but I understand what you're saying.
