Personally I've never really had a good experience with Steam. There's always been something that's been bugging me or not working.
Here's just a short list of problems I've had with Steam:
-The client is clunky and needs to be redesigned, imo.
-Sometimes the download speed of games has been so slow it can't even be considered decent by todays standards and no I can assure you this is not cause of my connection.
- The fact that Steam HAS to run in the background at all times to play any games is just ridiculous.
And now, today, I just can't seem to be able to purchase a couple of games. With the Steam Summer sale I was hoping I could pick 1-2 games up but that doesn't seem to be a possibility. All I get as a message is this, which seems to be complete bullshit.
"Your purchase has not been completed. Your credit card information has been declined by your credit card company.
Note that in some cases, your credit card company may put a 'hold' on funds in your account, but you will not be charged. After correcting any errors in the information displayed below, please try your purchase again."
"An unexpected error has occurred. Your purchase has not been completed.
Please contact Steam Support."
Now is it just me or is Steam completely fucking useless? I just can't put into words how much I hate the client.
