What is “Steam” do you ask? Well, if you know what Xbox Live Marketplace is, and the Playstation Network is, that that’s pretty much all you need to know. If you don’t know what any of those are, then let me try to break it down for you. You can go to “Steam” or store.steampowered.com and you can purchase and download games, full video games right from the website, download them to your computer and play them right there. Takes out the middle man of you having to go to the store and buy the game.
