I especially love the way you can import your own games into Steam. =P You can get games from other platforms and sites, and just pop them into Steam.

My account only has about $130 worth of games on it, but I've got 64 games total. =P Dirt 2, Left 4 Dead 1 & 2, Aliens Vs Predator, Supreme Commander 2, Overlord, Orange Box, the list goes on and on. cheers

I'm a fraghead, but I don't like RTS's, and not much of a MMORPG guy.\
So that knocks a lot of PC games dead there.
And 1000$ or more for a great PC? I'm goooood.

300 bucks for a PS3/360 is good.

You can build a PC for like 400-? dollars that can run generic FPS games like Crysis, STALKER, and Black Ops on HIGH settings that actually isn't much of a difference from Medium settings.
LMAO! Laughing

I bought AVP also. . . . . . Waste of 50 euro. The three campaign's (Alien,Marine and Predator) were so underwhelming, although the MP was fun for a while, it was a change from your standard FP games. Until that is it took almost 20 mins to find someone that actually plays the game. @_@ It's a ghost town now.

It was only $6.80. I'll play through the campaign and put some hours into the online. For less than $7, that's a STEAL.

lol a change from standard fps games? It felt like a sci-fi version of The Darkness.
In the multiplayer you could play as human or darkling (like alien or predator) and darklings could run across walls, even upside down, just like in AVP. And that game's only like £3! XD

Yes a change.You could play as an Alien,Predator and Marine. 3 way team deathmatch. Compare that to CoD, MoH, Halo, Killzone, Battlefield. All the mentioned games are very similar.

In the Library menu:

At the bottom, press the button that Says: Add game.

Then 'Add Non-Steam product'

You now get a list of installed programs and games on your computer.

Ah I misunderstood. I thought you meant sort of gameplay style, like the things you can play as.

PC gaming are for enthusiasts while Console gaming are for gamers. I'm a PC gamer and what's so great about PC gaming is that whenever you spend your money to upgrade your system the more entertainment you get from it.

One more thing; on PC gaming, you spend a lot on first hand but when you upgrade the system, you'll only spend a little.
