store.steampowered.com...

You have to register on Steam and don't worry it's safe, Steam is owned by the company that made the game.

Sorry although I heard of Steam I'm not very into video games at the moment: My parents frown upon it.

Yeah, I had to click the 'install' button a few times before it would work.

I have a very large distrust of Steam, despite being a user and member.

But this being free sounds good - must be a sign they are getting cashed up nicely


Why I distrust it, is because every game you pay for, you only get to install - it's good as long as they stay alive, and if any problems arose either by your losing internet access, or their website becoming defunct, you then no longer have the games you paid for.

Once reinstall of your OS, games are gone. Even if you did tick "offline" to be able to play them in the first place.

But can't talk now, downloading

That's not true, I had to reinstall my OS a few weeks ago and it let me download all my games again and reinstall them.

hmm ok i have to cut in here because there is all kinds of fail going on in this thread. first of all, buying from steam is much better than buying a physical copy because once you buy a game from steam, the license is yours to keep. if your physical copy breaks, you don't need to buy a new one, just download it again.

if you have to reinstall your OS all of your games are still downloadable. If you have a second or third computer you can install there as well as long as you log into your steam client. however you cant play a game on multiple computers at the same time since you can't use up both licenses simultaneously. there are all kinds of advantages and disadvantages to buying a license over a physical copy but i won't bother with the details here, just know that if you buy it from steam, it is yours to keep and you can download at your hearts content.

also i find it strange that games are "frowned upon" by parents of this generation. i can understand that type of ignorance in my generation since my parents didn't grow up with games but for someone growing up now, it seems antiquated. there was a time in the generation before mine that thought kids who listened to ozzy osbourne and played dungeons and dragons were automatically branded satanists and we all know how ridiculous that is. i actually got in trouble for an iron maiden poster and i assure you, i don't worship satan. and if you go back even further parents thought elvis pressley was considered too risque because he shaked his hips.

games are just games and parents need to understand this, and it bothers me that games are perceived negatively. look at movies, just because there are some very disturbing movies out there doesn't mean you outlaw all movies altogether. parents need to get involved and monitor what movies a child would watch. the same would apply to games, i wouldn't allow my child to play la noir or grand theft auto but most Mario or Zelda games will be fine as long as it's not affecting their grades or their lives.
