Although I can certainly let Steam more or less rape me/my hard drive because this is Gordon "Stephen" Freeman and/or Meestor Newell, I cannot help but think that a system like this ultimately needs to have significantly more user control or have the market consolidate even further (as scare a thought as that is.)
What if every
developer or publisher decided to have a system like this? Am I supposed to have fifty Steam-like programs running on my computer? Kill my bandwidth eacn and every day? Go out and buy four or five hard drives solely for these developers or publishers to randomly whore out my hard drives?
Again, Valve can pretty much make me its b*tch :o, but it really should look at how it is handling the program and what options/control it is giving me as the end user. Yeah, I know that I can essentially block it from doing things, but it requires a lot more work on my end than it should. It is not like I can just open up the Steam window and see what it is specifically doing or decide whether or not to start or stop the pushes that Valve makes.
