EA games on Steam, wowzers

21 12 2008

I’m away from internet contact at the moment, but i just saw this news as i was buying the original stalker for $5 on the Steam weekend deal.

EA on Steam, this is huge in light of their recent DRM fiascos, i didn’t even want to consider Red Alert 3 because of the install limitations, something that really tarnished everyone’s view of Spore (write-up to follow). It’s a weird feeling installing a game and worrying about “wasting” it, but i digress. With another notch on Steam’s belt, could this be another step in the direction of having every PC game available on Steam? Could this be the death of the box PC game? Can i think of a third question to round out this conclusion?
