Can I play some games with my xbox controller?
+Shalom Goldsburg Yes. I use mine to play Rocket League, Pinball FX2 and many other titles. If your controller is the Xbox One controller be aware it only works with Windows 10.

Bought DOOM for $5 USD last week! But 95% are getting black screens because of the stupid Chroma patch. Even when sales are expired, trading works as an alternative; I've traded inventory games for the sale price that have expired over the years.

Does it cost monthly to use steam
No, there is no monthly fee for STEAM. Some of the games do have monthly fees (usually MMORPGs) as an option.

What is the point of buying pc games on steam when you can just download it for free and some of the games on there are expensive that is just a waste of money
OMtom87 (4 months ago)
Ok, but if you want a decent to good gaming experience on pc, you’ll beed to fork up much more money or your cheap pc isn’t future proof and you’ll need to upgrade quickly anyway. I’m a consoler but I do recognize that pc gaming can be much better, sure, because a gtx 1070 cost more than my entire Xbox one itself. I bought an xbx 1, $120 headset, more than 8 games and a years worth of live and I’m still not above $1,000

My $700 Dell i5-7000 laptop plays AAA games well on Medium to High settings. Before this I had a $2k PC with a GTX 295/750. Thing with consoles is that the recent ones aren't backward compatible. Steam has all my 1k+ games that can be accessed and played on future PCs.
sdushdiu (5 months ago)
Steam is useful and cost effective ONLY if you wish to try out a bunch of games before buying. Otherwise owning a HARD COPY and not having to pay to play ad nauseum is the cheaper way to go.

Yawn..."Apple had to give up on all their failed processors" LMAO! Oh, you mean as the PowerPC was already TWO generations behind the rest of Power's lineup, of which the smallest Power CPU in 2004 was EIGHT cores? It made complete sense for Apple to employ the commodity X86 processor instead of paying and having IBM/Power make a puny outdated PC compatible version of Power for a tiny market share....and then you stupidly state that Macs can't run Windows after stating that they were PCs - in fact, specifically Intel Roadmap compliant PCs - that indeed run Windows. With such a braindead ignorant intro, WHY exactly should one continue to listen expecting subsequent reliable information????
Craig Richardson (5 months ago)
Are some of these games made by regular people similar to Google play or is it all official games and all are safe to download?

Digital games needs to be way cheaper than they are cause you lose the ability to sell them after you are done with em. With consoles you can sell ur physical games and make alot of money back.
Yousef Alhajeri (8 months ago)
The main feature of steam is ability to get a refund if you played the game less than two hours... considered as a demo. Buy a game, play & if you dont like it then return it.
Mohammad Alqahtani (8 months ago)
maybe it's a better way in future but for now you can't get new decent games always on steam still needs time to improve. It does not make sense to pay $ 2000-2500 on gaming pc and most of the games you find are arcade will I can get better games for cheaper console :)

PC = personal computer ...... not intel or mac
Intel or Mac? Are you not aware that Macs use Intel processors? Windows, Mac, Linux and all PCs though in this context PC is a personal computer running on an x86/AMD64 platform.

What about games I have on my PC?
Albert Rios (8 months ago)
How do I add games I own to steam or is it not possible? Citi Skylines I purchased this from Microsoft store but can't find where the game was installed in order for me to add it to steam. I can't even see the properties or the install on remove installations?
+Albert Rios what do you mean? Steam games are downloaded on your PC.

i instal call of duty black ops when the installacation done it say steam must be running
+ritam lodh Steam games require the Steam client to be running to play. If you're traveling the client can run in offline mode, but it still has to be running.

J Cole (11 months ago)
Joe’s Super Fantabulous PC Gaming Channel Could you recommend a good gaming laptop? I'm starting to get into computer gaming and don't know ANYTHING about it. And I just want to buy a pre built laptop that can run battlegrounds H1Z1 Day Z etc. I don't have the time or knowledge to build my own and don't want to even try I have a budget of $1000. I was looking at the Aleinware 13 but friends of mine were saying you're paying for the name and their products aren't good.
+Noah Reed each game has its own requirements which are listed on their store pages. I personally like to have the best PC I can afford to be able to play the most games possible at the highest settings.

Just bought a PC game, which is basically forcing me to install Steam, so I thought I'd check it out, since I really don't care much for it, I kinda just want to play the game I've spent my money on (especially since trying to install Steam resulted in a bluescreen). "STEAM is a better way to play" >Cannot play without signing up. >Cannot play without signing in. >Cannot play if internet is down. Oh, that's much better than pressing one button and having your game start. Remember kids, always check the label. Avoid anything with this abominable virus on it.
Terrible Tanner (1 year ago)
No, I can't imagine many people love blue screens. I'm trying to warn people who are looking to buy PC games, who like myself had no idea that Steam was programmed into certain games. Furthermore, I'd rather play a game the old fashioned way: You put the disc in, press one button, and it starts. I find this far superior than having an irrelevant dictatorial program telling me I can't play the game if I don't sign up to their website, agree with their terms and conditions, remain signed in and have internet access 100% of the time (especially when the game has no online features whatsoever) and then booting me off my own game if my connection drops. I see no upside to Steam, and can't understand why anyone would even consider using it.
Millions of players aren't playing on Steam because they love blue screens. Something is wrong with your PC's OS that has nothing to do with Steam. You can avoid blue screens of death forever though by playing on Linux (Steam has 2500+ Linux games).

yeah, so i just want to know wtf is steam and here is a 20 minute video. 20 minutes. the first minute and a half is rambling about how to define a PC. no way i stay for the next 18 and a half minutes of rambling. you just like to hear yourself talk?
11swallowedinthesea (1 month ago)
Go to Wiki. Otherwise, resume being salty.
The question was answered in the first 22 seconds. The rest is details about Steam and why it's a good platform.
v10moped (1 year ago)
20 minutes? Really? In settings put speed to x2 speed. because this guy covers the subject way too slow.

If this video was shorter it wouldn't give you anything more than a google search or common sense would give you faster. Pay no attention to these 2 second attention span idiots.
Here's the short version for anyone that doesn't have time for a leisurely video: Steam is a software delivery and management service where games are often much cheaper than on consoles or from stores. There is no annual fee, no discs to worry about, you just login and have access to yours games and saved game files from anywhere. The same games on consoles cost more and don’t look as good as playing on a PC on Steam. I love Steam!

*I've been debating about this and the prices are really tempting. Gamestop will go out of business soon, and it's their own doing for giving us peanuts for games when we go sell it to them then turn around and BOOM sell for 5 dollars less than the new copy. I stopped buying from them*
I used to buy from Gamestop also, but that stopped as soon as I discovered Steam.

Gotta love the summer sale. Sadly for me who lives with his family and has a birthday in july, getting anything around this time is not available really I am never able to take advantage of the summer sale.
kieran ives (1 year ago)
I disagree that it's cheaper overall, the pc sets you back loads then the monitor then the mouse and keyboard and with buying games on console after you get bored of the game you can trade it in for money, not sure if you can do that on pc or not.
Z Wojey (28 days ago)
kieran ives unless of course you are like me and know close to nothing about building comps... Then its just like buying a new console having to pay someone.
E.R.A Studios (4 months ago)
Some people aka collectors also like to have the physical copy.
You can game on a TV the same as you can with a console (I have a PC connected to my TV). I haven't seen a TV made in years that didn't have HDMI input or a PC in years that didn't have HDMI output.
kieran ives (1 year ago)
+Fash Themightygaming yeah that is a good point.
Fash Themightygaming (1 year ago)
Yes but you can upgrade the pc without buying an entirely new computer. Whereas to upgrade your console you need to buy a new one... Cheaper in the end...

I've been playing Sniper Elite v3 thanks to the sale, and I've been loving it! I think you would too!
