That's exactly what I told my boss when he told us about having to close our video games store and basically blamed steam for it. The world simply moves on. What I still hate about steam is the regional restriction of content. They missed hundreds of my €€€ because of "low violence version".
Wow, I had no idea that they imposed those kind of restrictions in Canada. Sad, I always liked Canada. You would think that at the very least you would have access to any version you want if you are seventeen/eighteen or older. Of course, with Steam there really would be no means to verify age... a credit card verification perhaps.
I never encountered age restrictions but as far as "low Violence version" goes, have you ever seen the german censored version of Counter Strike Source? www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkUuABNnTC0
Here mate. It is not steams fault that the patch the makers sent out it up. So do not blame steam for that.

That wouldn't be as big an issue if steam didnt FORCE you to patch.
How is that Steam's fault? The X-Com developers are the ones to blame for that.
Blaming Steam for a faulty patch, is like blaming a store for a product that didn't work. Its not the stores fault the product was faulty, its the fault of the company that produced the product.
