"I lost access to the email account I used in HL2. When I tried to get the game re-registered, they basically told me to get lost.
They are arrogant. I'll never buy a Steam game again.
Sounds to me like you are just a dumbass. You can't re-register your serial number to another account once you have already done it. Maybe read a little, use some common sense, and use their Support system on the website to submit a ticket instead of being a complete idiot and just blaming Valve for your own stupidity.
And you registered just to post that...so I'm going to do you a favor since you obviously can't figure it out on your own... http://support.steampowered.com
Are you f-ing stupid or what? Not be able to re-register is why Steam sucks. And didn't I say I already contacted them? Didn't I say that if you don't have the original email account, your game is worthless? It was retail fool. Who keeps receipts (you have to scan a copy and send it to them). WTF
Oh and it's always the real-life wuss-boys who try to act like big men on the Internet. Isn't that true you little turd. I should have expected it from someone who spends his life on gaming sites. I didn't ask for your opinion anyway, pimpleboy.
Steam sucks for games the way DRM sucks for music. Even M$ will let you call to reactivate.This comment was edited on Apr 20, 14:00.
