The best thing it would do is rip off the mask that Steam has anything to do with PC gaming. Readers know that I view the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 not as consoles but as ‘dumbed down PC machines’. All the games are PC games but dumbed down to play with a controller on a TV.
If PC gaming masquerading as console gaming is possible, then console gaming masquerading as PC gaming is also possible. What the Valve Corporation is doing with Steam is a type of Anti-PC-Gaming. It is console-izing your PC gaming. If a Steambox is made, this would reveal the Valve Corporation for what it is trying to do.
Why doesn’t Steam offer DRM free games of ANY KIND? The problem isn’t that Windows 8 wants to be a closed system, it is that Steam wants to be that closed system.
True PC Gaming is not having closed systems. The more a gamer questions the purpose of Steam, the greater the realization sinks in that Steam is retarding PC gaming by pushing DRM and other bad things.
