I find Steam to be very handy. You don't have to drive around looking for a game, it's probably on Steam. No disc-swapping (which is making a resurgence), you may not remember the days of waiting on dialup in download queues for patches because developers hosted them with a third party, Steam activation has eased most developers DRM fears (Rockstar is painfully immune to it, though, making you do three levels of activation).

For those of us who sat through hours of floppy drives grinding away, Steam is a treasure.

Unless it gets hacked. Then it's all of sudden not so much fun anymore. >_<

My steam got hacked once, but because I buy all my games from retail stores they couldn't get any creditcard information or anything else sensitive.

Credit card information is stored locally. If someone logs in to your account from another computer, they do not have access to your info.

Valve confirmed it themselves... and the article is all over the web.

Though, like I said, it never happened to me so maybe you're right.

Any site which stores credit card information - or any other information for that matter - online is susceptible to being hacked- Amazon, D2D, Book sites, game sites, porn sites, etc etc. Hell, any database which can be accessed online is susceptible to being hacked, since people will hack and steal completely pointless information just for the fun of it. Even CH could be hacked. Steam isn't unique in that.
