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.

Realistically, when do you think EA or Steam are going to go bust?

Realistically? Not any time in the near future but on the other hand stranger things have happened. As I said, the risk is less and for most people (me included) it's a perfectly acceptable trade-off.

I dread the day when Steam goes bust. I've got 201 games in my collection, according to Steam, and even though I've gotten almost all of them through various sales and Humble Bundles it would still hurt my wallet quite a bit :/
