Play demos, catch up on news and get great discounts
Steam is fueled by a constantly growing and improving catalog of games which range from free pixel art platformers to releases that have been built using the latest game engines and are worth every penny spent.
The platform currently offers over three thousand games with hundreds more being voted and launched on a regular basis with the help of the ‘Greenlight’ system. The latter is community powered as each member can voluntarily vote if they want to see a specific game released on Steam. They can also visit the pending product’s page and give positive or negative feedback.
That is one of the many examples which showcase the amount of contribution Steam users can have over the content they receive and of course, its quality.
Receive automatic updates for each game you have
As a Steam user, one of the things you can really benefit from, which is absolutely great, is the fact that you automatically receive updates for every game you have installed. Along with sparing you the grief of looking and downloading them, you also get all the latest news neatly sorted and available at the click of a button.
Apart from news and updates, you also get info on the products you add to your wishlist, making it very easy for you to not miss out on any ‘Midweek Madness’ sale when prices tend to plummet to ridiculously affordable values.
The place to be when it comes to all things gaming
When it comes to Steam, there’s a lot more to wrap your head around apart from what has been mentioned. It’s a complex yet easy to use platform that facilitates everything from finding a game to getting the best deal for it.
