Steam fails. Steam is a good idea. See a game online, buy it, download it, update it, play it, download stuff for it. But, it fails. Steam is a great idea but is implemented horrifically. I own Portal, All the Half-Life's, and Team Fortress 2 and download times are BAD! I dread even updating these games because it will take me 1 hour each even with the fastest internet connection. Steam offers a nice interface, online store, and a lot of content (L4D is epic!) but updating and downloading games and content such as movies, trailers, mods, ect. sucks. I don't want to update something every time I wan't to play it when I know it works with my system.

Example: Just spent 15 minutes downloading a Steam L4d Trailer on to my Laptop. I unplugged my laptop to go sit on my couch and watch it. Turns out, even though I downloaded the video to my hard drive, I need an internet connection to watch it...

Totally agree with this.

Steam is a fantastic idea but their network fails. Bigtime! For speeds.

This is exactly why i always buy the disk for whatever game i want to play through Steam. I have all of the HL/HL2 L4D/L4D2. Everything infact and all on disks. Updating any of these games once installed for the first times isn't a problem though. On 20Mb broadband all the updates come through quick enough.

And on topic for the OP. Just do what i do and google some PC game review sites. They usually give you some good idea's and enough information on what you may or may not like.

Good luck on whatever you choose and happy gaming
