Steam is a digital distribution, digital rights management, multiplayer and communications platform developed by Valve Corporation. It is used to distribute a wide range of games and related media entirely over the internet, stretching from one-man independent efforts to some of the worlds most popular games. Steam is set apart from its peers in terms of functionality primarily by its residency in the system tray, and the desktop tasks that the client software performs to make use of that... More info »

My friends use this and I started using it as well. It makes sense you have your friends list, the games, the invites, etc. There are good deals on games. Can't complain

Love the Big Picture mode

Big Picture

It's like the dashboards on PS3 or XBox360 and let's you start programs through a nice interface from your couch with your game pad (among other things). I've never really liked Steam, but that feature is awesome.

Using Steam took the gaming experience to a whole new level. It made buying games much more easier and cheaper.

The deals makes gaming affordable again, which is the main reason I like it. Also I have had to buy Diablo 2 about 3 times now, and this takes care of things like that for me.

Also, the community aspect has come a long way, and you can now host and share videos, screenshots etc. through Steam.

Steam has become THE Standard in digital distribution, and that is because of good management. The service itself is free, has a good community integration with profiles, chat and voice-chat, groups, recommendations, and more. Also provides development framework for steam integration to developers resulting in games using the steam community, achievements, cloud storing of settings and save-games, server browsing.
The only drawback is: Steam is DRM. A game bound to your account will be bound to it, permanently. You can play games offline and deny updating, but you’ll probably stay online and up-to-date with its nice auto-updating.
Valves (creator of steam) distribution policy is not too coplex and not unfair allowing for publishers and indie companies to publish their games in fair terms. For the users there have been and will be an infinite amount of weekend deals and Summer and Winter-deals where you can buy countless games for a hell of a price.
