Yes, if you have never
had Steam fail on you, then you are very lucky.
To prove it to yourself simply type "steam failed to" into Google and then see all the suggestions which popup like "steam failed to connect" and "steam failed to contact key server". Then click on some of the links to read about actual people having these problems. The fact that these terms are Google suggestions show just how commonplace these Steam failures are.
The point is that all DRM systems which rely on Internet authentication like Steam does will fail sometimes. It is inevitable. Just because it hasn't happened to you doesn't mean it won't. And, the more games you have which are tied to Steam, the bigger the impact it will have when it does fail.This comment was edited on Mar 9, 2010, 12:50.
