I never buy anything through Steam or any game that uses Steam as a third party client. I have had my fill with this bunch of crooks and will never use their service or buy from them again. Oh everything is fine up until something messes up, then you can never get any satisfaction from these people. When their automatic update download failed on one of my games, I could never get the game to work again. In other games I could never get my password or registration recognized and have lost probably $200.00 or more before I wised up and stopped using things which were associated with Steam. I am aware that more companies are using Steam, but I cannot understand why. I think these companies to be first class idiots, and complete dolts to use Steam. Do what you want but take my advice and leave Steam and Steam related games alone.
