Well, it would be more if every highstreet shop you visited required you to sign up for an authentication card, and required that you use that card every time you wanted to enter the shop, and every shop uses a different card… and they all got burgled all the time anyway, so the only people it was inconveniencing are paying customers.

The key thing I find with Steam is that it absolutely minimized inconvenience, makes patching and updating completely transparent, offers a bunch of other useful features, and actually functions as a reasonably effective copy protection system.  Plus it’s a single solution accessible to all developers, that almost all games can be accessed through.

It’s not perfect, but it’s a hell of a lot better than most.
