Gamers can download games via Steam, which also allows players have in-game voice and chat as well as the ability to save games online. Steam supports the likes of PlayStation 3, OS X, Linux, Android, Steam OS and Windows.

Steam is an online platform where game purchases can be made, and if there is an outage the Steam community will come forward with complaints. Millions of gamers will not be too happy if the service drop in any way shape or form and no matter how short or long the problem lasts for.

It can be said Steam games not launching or its website going down would cause a few complaints, relying on Steams official Twitter updates is worth while looking at, but gamers are a lot quicker at reporting Steam problems. If you are a gamer please do send in your Steam problems today.

  • mike0liver

    What is going on? I bought GalCiv3 from Amazon for delivery yesterday – it arrived on time. I started the installation process this morning at 10 am. It took almost an hour to update Steam and then, when I clicked on the game launch icon, I was told it would take 109 days (YES, 109 DAYS!) to update the game. This is now down to 1 day and 42 minutes. All I want to do is play a b—–y game! and one that I paid good money for. Get your act together, Steam, and quick or that’s the last you’ll see of me!
