Steam likes pissing me around.

It's slow, clunky and most of the games available on it are not compatible with Macs. Portal 2 was good on it though, and TF2 as well.

I hate having to load up Steam every time I want to play a Steam game, makes everything so much slower.

Free and legal Steam games

Hey Guys, I Binged Free and legal steam games and found out the following games are free:
Alien Swarm
America's Army 3
BattleForge
Between
Champions Online: Free for All
Codename Gordon
COIL
Global Agenda: Free Agent
Mightier
Moonbase Alpha
Peggle Extreme
Sam & Max Episode 104: Abe Lincoln Must Die!
Spacewar
Spiral Knights
Team Fortress 2
The Cat and the Coup
TrackMania Nations Forever

Here's the link to the website where I found this info: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...d.php?t=851573
Thanks IvanDoomer.
Note: You Must go to the website I posted to install the following games:
Sam & Max Episode 104: Abe Lincoln Must Die! (Why? Offered for free but is nowhere to be found on the steam storefront)
Codename Gordon (Why? this game has been removed from the steam store)

Note 2:The following games have been mistakenly listed as demos but are in fact the full game:
BattleForge
Between
COIL
Mightier

If you're talking about vapor then I rather not talk about it...


But if you're talking about Valve software's steam then the first thing that comes to mind is TF2... is it worth getting back into? Also why did they choose to brand it "free to play"... wasnt it always free to play?
