You might have noticed that last week, Anarchy Online finally joined the whole Steam crowd. It was weird to look at that story and wonder who is out there that was holding off, for some reason, from trying out this game for the past 16 years until it finally arrived on Valve’s platform.
Then again, I know many players who primarily rely on Steam to be their complete game ecosystem. If it ain’t out for Steam, they ain’t playing it. I’ll admit that I’m starting to gradually migrate in this direction for both Steam and GOG.com, since it’s nice and convenient to have all of my games organized and handled by these platforms. And they seem to do a good job of allowing me to peruse other games and easily installing them, particularly if they’re free.
Are you one of those who wait for MMOs to arrive on Steam before trying them out? Have you found yourself flipping through the “massively multiplayer” section to see what else is out there?
