Please; enlighten us.
If you've always been able to play your games which require Steam and never had it fail to launch a game then you have either been very lucky, haven't used Steam for very long, or only use it infrequently.

Very lucky? I've only recently heard of this ever happening, and that was during the mysterious Portal puzzle a week or so ago. Something was up with Steam's content servers or something, and I think it may have only affected users of the new beta GUI (which I also use).

I have used Steam since 2006, and I have NEVER had any problems with it denying me access to my games. I can't honestly think of any other problems either. And I use it quite frequently.

There is of course the occasional inconvenience of Steam disconnecting from, and being unable to reconnect for some time to the servers which has only had an affect on one game: Team Fortress 2. And it didn't mean I couldn't play. It just meant that my non-standard items didn't work (only the main weapons you have before you unlock achievements or that you obtain from item drops will work). And as I said, the game still runs the same, and it's only a slight annoyance. Usually, reconnecting to the server fixes it, but sometimes it's a Steam-wide thing, which is a shame, but not catastrophic.
