The only thing on the face of the earth that could have so many errors. Using it is like unwanted anal sex by some big burly man named Betty.

Wow, gg steam. GJ with making 24 out of the 29 people on NAR#2 the Gorge Hideout server randomly drop, completely ruining the game.

Wait... why are 666 and a bunch of pentagrams with stars in them included in the steam help file?

A digital download system based on auto-updates, friends-lists, and no DRM.

Although not perfect it's a much better option then Gamestop and dealing with the asshole customers rip off resales, cheap ass trade in values that rip you off at every possible opportunity.

Steam was created by valve to sell there products along with indie products and occasionally other stuff. Many people claim that Steam is only around to line valves pockets but really they are just upset by the bugs and mistakes valve made with the program rather then having really issues with it.

Despite it's wonderful usage and application Steam has it's fair share of faults. Mainly slow processing which can delay downloads massively, auto-updates without any notification, and the occasional bugs and glitches.

Despite this Steam is often regarded as a massively useful program and a god send because of it's lack of pointless DRM which most other digital download services are plagued with. It also has often sales which can give a great product away at a great price.
Guy: Steam sucks it's so laggy and never loads an-OH that indie game is on sale for 50% off must buy!

Gabe: Another job well done :D

A online gaming thing that makes your money disappear.
I just spent 400 dollars on Steam. I regret nothing. Except that I didn't buy any Team Fortress 2 hats.

An app by valve software that sells downloads of games old and new and usurps you of your money.
I spent $100 on Steam and I haven't even played half of the games I bought.

Steams is a game. Fun for all the family. 'Steams' was born in Coundon Court School in Coventry. Everyone who goes to Coundon Court has played this game. It's not just a game either, it's a test of strength, bravery and manliness. The game evolved over the years into what it is today.

The rules of the game are:

You kick a football around in a group.
-If you get megged, everyone else in the group kicks the shit out of you.
-If you kick the ball in the air and someone else catches it, everyone else in the group kicks the shit out of you.
-If someone else kicks it in the air and you try to catch it but drop it, everyone kicks the shit out of you.
-If you take 2 touches of the ball, you get the shit kicked out of you.
"Let's play Steams!"
*Brad passes the ball to Dave*
*Dave megs Sam*
"STEEAAAMMSS!!" (Shouted by everyone)
*Everyone beats the shit out of Sam until they get bored*

An online gaming store created by Valve as a way to make money off of games, people worked hard on, just so they can make a profit because THEY'RE TOO DAMN LAZY TO MAKE HALF-LIFE 3 OR A NEW PORTAL GAME! Way to go Gabe Newell, suck up all the profits from the hard work indie developers go through only to find out all the cash goes to Newell buying more Big Macs to sustain his life-support.
Gabe Newell:"Suddenly I lost my ability to make new games."
Valve Employee: "Dude, let's be like EA and make a store called Steam, where we trick game developers to making games on the store, where they believe they would get the majority of the profit, but in reality, we take all the cash and buy another McDonalds for you."
Gabe Newell: "That's a shit-tastic idea!"

Steam has two definitions.
1: Common, non-scientific name for water vapour.
2: An online games store renowned for it's frequent sales and deals.
Definition One
Inventor: "I've had an idea, I will use steam to power trains!"
Guy: "Dude, that's so 18th Century."
Definition two:
Guy: "Steam summer sale is here! Woo!"
Guy 2: "Yeah, but, I would also like to eat."
