Steam. Everyone who’s been playing PC games for the last decade will know the name. It is one of the first major applications to introduce digital download of full PC games. Some people hate it, some people love it, but, in the end, it’s an easier and cheaper means of purchasing a game rather than forcing your lovely legs to work and walk a couple of blocks.
Just about everyone in the industry is comfortable with having their products up on Steam – everyone including Electronic Arts. Having titles already listed on the popular game-downloading app, EA has added six more games to the service. The list of games are as follows:
- Need for Speed: Shift ($50)
- The Godfather ($10)
- The Godfather 2 ($40)
- Battlefield 2: Complete Collection ($30)
- Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Uprising ($20)
- Medal of Honor: Airborne ($10)
Sadly, one of the most popular titles on EA’s behemoth list of games, The Sims 3, isn’t on Valve’s popular download service. Instead, the game is being offered on Stardock’s competing service Impulse. Why the back and forth from EA is beyond us. Looks like there’s going to be two popular kids on the block fighting for the pretty bitch for a while.
