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.

Most of the games on GoG are less than what I spend on my lunch on a Friday.

I spend as much on a triple-AAA game as a night out on the town mid-week with my friends. The night out cannot be replayed without more investment weekly.

You go to the cinema and pay 1/6 of the price for 2 hours entertainment you can't see again without (legally) purchasing a disk for a similar or higher price.

Games aren't expensive when you actually compare them to other forms of entertainment.
