Games

Steam Family Sharing allows close friends and family members to play one another's games while earning their own Steam achievements and saving their own game progress to the Steam cloud. It's all enabled by authorizing a shared computer.

Sounds neat, but it does look convoluted and complex. I have a simpler system, which is quite revolutionary. It's called physical copies and I can just give them to friends. It's magic.

I'm an avid gamer and I've never understood the complaints about the price of games. After taking inflation and other factors into account, we're actually paying less for games now than we've ever been, not to mention having full access to an indie scene that sells games for considerably less than the usual $60.

People regularly pay $10 for a 2-hour movie. How we can balk at paying $60 for 40+ hours of entertainment is beyond me.
