Steam Keys

Steam: A Quick History

If PC games are your thing, then you most likely have purchased at least one from it or used a Steam key before. Even if you are more into dedicated video game consoles, you will still have probably heard or read about Steam around the internet.

Steam is a software that was developed by Valve Corporation that allows digital distribution of games using the internet. It also acts as a digital hub for players to connect with other players around the world through multiplayer, as well as allow them to interact with each other through voice and chat. The initial goal to the creation of Steam was for the automatic updating of games without the need for gameplay-halting patches, and for providing a tighter grip on distribution of games to dissuade piracy.

First officially released back in 2003, the general gaming public was a bit skeptical of the idea, especially since it mainly relies on internet connection for its services. But fast-forward a decade later, it has become so popular that it has become almost synonymous with PC gaming. Although, not all games can be found at Steam, its game library consists of thousands of games for users to buy.

Steam keys: How and Why

In order to download and install a game from Steam, players will need to purchase a Steam key first. Buying a Steam key is just like a normal transaction performed when buying anything, online or otherwise. No tricks, no magic, and no behind-the-counter transactions: just straight up buy the product then enjoy the product. Once users have bought a Steam key, all they need to do is enter the little codes and just wait for the game to be downloaded and installed.

Steam keys are a very convenient option for players who just prefer to do all of their gaming transactions while not moving an inch from their seats at home. It further adds to the trend today that every transaction can be done over the internet. Sure, the game boxes bought at retail stores hold sentimentality (and admit it, they look cool), but at the end of the day, convenience wins out: using a keyboard and a mouse to do business is more enticing than the horror of actually getting up from your seat and traveling to the retail store. Popular and highly-anticipated games are most likely available for sale at Steam, so no need to worry about missing out on the good stuff.

Discounts, discounts, and more discounts!

Ah, probably the only reason players will hate Steam (and Steam keys by extension): it’s a fast way to burn through your cash, leaving you with a ton of games to play but too poor to even buy energy drinks for the entire gaming marathon that will ensue. Steam offers players lots of video game discounts everyday, especially during holidays and the cash-crippling summer season. The bargains are always too enticing to pass, leaving players grasping for control and discipline over their money. If you don’t like the current bargain on the game you like, you can always come back another time and wait for a better deal.

Sales on Steam are one of the main advantages for getting Steam keys: players can always get more than their money’s worth with all the discounts parading themselves in your face. If you want games at the lowest prices, Steam keys are the way to go!
