    You got it.

    I haven't had to reinstall HL, HL2, or any of the expansions (Counterstrike, Day of Defeat, etc.) since I've got them all in Steam.

    Thats right, and that is why we all want desperately to be able to add games we have purchased at retail so we no longer need to keep track of the discs. It also keeps everything updated.

    man, all this time and such a great utility unused, this helps a lot, I have a whole armoir of PC games and only 26 installed in my new computer, now that I know this I can add em all and put em in storage

    I also have 6 computers in my house (2 more coming soon) can I login my steam account and play from all of the computers in my house (well, theoretically, only 2 are capable of running all the games lol)

    Well yes and no. Not every game can be added to Steam. Only about 2-300 different games can either be added via steam or registered (using the CD Key) after the fact on Steam.

    For games that can't be directly registered/downloaded, you can still "Add" them to Steam. (You can basically shortcut to every game so that you can still launch it from within steam, but you don't get updates, patches, etc.)

    For example: Titan Quest. I picked it up for $5 at Circuit City. Even though it is possible to purchase the game directly through Steam, it is not possible to register it after the fact and take advantage of what Steam offers (patches, no-CD, etc.).

    Aye, which is why we are saying it would be awesome if you could do this. My Trackmania United for example, I bought online when it first went up directly from Nadeo's site and now I have run out of allowed installs... if I ever need to install again I need to contact them and have to go through that nonsense; if I could add the game to Steam then I wouldn't have to worry about that. Hell, I wouldn't even need to worry about reinstalling at that point, everything in that folder is self-contained.

    sorry to continue derailing the thread but there was an interview where valve said they know people want to add non-steam games to steam...I know it's not much but maybe they're trying to work on that...

    the problem I guess for them would be the fact that how would they determine pirated copies from legit copies? I don't know if there's a database of keys kept when copies of a game are being manufactured so maybe they can compare it to that database or something...though it may not matter since the game is already cracked and all they're doing is registering it for updates and so on...

    I don't know really...I'm sure there's legal hurdles too along with technological hurdles...like if it were to happen then I bet the increased load on content servers would kill all available bandwidth...but still it'd be awesome to see

    Well, since you cannot play pirated games online due to cd key checks, I imagine there is something in place to check the true validity of keys.

    Wasn't as big as I thought it would be, but some of us were interested.

    I wouldn't recommend doing another one until after the holidays, though, too much awesome new stuff being released.

    It hasn't been popular, but the Game of the Month Club is a good idea and I'd like to see it continue.

    it's a good idea during the summer and stuff when nothing is being released...but no one would want to play a 5 year old game during this stretch of games

    As long as it gets going again sometime in the future, you can count me in. I just have to finish Far Cry 2, Fallout 3, and Merc 2 first
