It had some issues when it first came out, sure. But outside of the updating when you tell it not to I've not had a single issue with Steam in years.

I don't like steam but I am a steam user. I bought a Supreme Commander 2 DVD yesterday so I can play immediately and have to download the whole game off from the net. Unfortunately, steam wants to update the game before I can even play, and I don't have a good internet service provider, took me 12 hours to update the game. I could have played immediately if only steam at least allow me to just install game and not update.

Well I am a steam user dont really have a problem with updates then again dont even have a problem with it offline has well... Only problem I have with it is sometimes cant find the save game files on it... Then again alot people cant complain really. It was your choice to use it not theres so in away I see both sides lol. I do have a fast net connection which I do love.... So no problems with updating.

If you really want to boycott Steam just go into one of there main forums and start listing stuff that is wrong. Some how show them that your right. I am sure alot of other people will back you up on what you say. If theres euongh people usely they fix the problem. If they dont just claim that you will report them with the proof you have,( this part usely 3 to 6 weeks later, but I suggest wait for 3 to 4 months if the forum still going strong, they still have not done nothing). You have the proof you need for court. But theres few other details I am leaving out because its my trick of trade. Somethings should not be said over forums.

One more thing dont blame me nor CH if this does not work because I have no dealing on what you do. You choose your on path I dont choose it for you nor CH. Just my little disclaimer.

This.

I've been using steam since July 24th 2004, and I've never had a single issue that I had to go to customer service about. Steam is one of the best gaming clients ever made in my opinion, and you all can tell me it's not til you're blue in the face, I;m entitled to my opinion.

Boycotting Steam is basically saying that you never want to play another Valve game again. If you don't want your games to update all the time, go to the properties of that game (right click, properties), click the Updates tab, and then pick NEVER UPDATE THIS GAME option.

There so go, problem solved, you can now all stop badmouthing steam just because they automatically give you software updates to fix the bugs that your games might have which may make you extremely frustrated, make your game crash, freeze, not load, make certain scripted events not happen. Incase you hadn't realised, automatic updates to games is an extremely useful feature, which you CAN turn off if your desperate enough.

Just because you like using trainers doesn't mean steam is being a nazi updating your games, it's simple enough to just disable the updates. Your complaints have an easy fix if you took the time to look.

Edit:

And in answer to the OP's "How do we boycott Steam?"

The answer is this.

Stop buying games.

Either that or take the time to read the back and if it mentions needing steam to run or an internet connection, don't buy it. Simple as that really if you want to cut your list of playable games down by a fair number.
