I have steam installed, mainly use it for Skyim, DOTA2 and some FPS multiplayers.
I use both Steam and Origin, helps to quickly download games as I want to play them, then remove them from my low-memory PC when I get bored of them for the time being.
To me, the appeal of using digital download services is to gain access to older games. When I've felt the desire to play the action / adventure games that I loved in my youth, as well as games I never got to play, I've gone to sites like Abandonia.com and Good Old Games (gog.com). Let's hear it for nostalgia! =)
I use Steam and WoW, those two are also my major money pits so more would probably be the end of me :)
No, I've never used a service like this.
steam because it auto updates my games, and it also puts all my games in one place to remove desktop clutter
Yes; Steam and Origin to be able to download my games onto more than one computer easily, without having to keep track of discs or serial numbers.
I use Steam, but only because it is the place you can find the most games. I would rather use another more simple solution that would allow me pay with Paypal (I am located in Denmark), and not force me to use Euro, when it's not my currency!I prefer Origin actually, but it's just "limited" in how many games are there to EA's collections (naturally) and some Popcap stuff .. not sure if Popcap is branch of EA? .. wouldn't surprise me hehe :-)Oh and of course Battle.net system, but I guess that technically isn't a software, but more a website .. *shrugs*Anyways .. thank you for a wonderful site .. it makes WoW better! (no I'm not sucking up lol .. I mean it ;-))

I haven't used Steam in ages, and even then it wasn't much.
I use Steam only for Dota2, but it's not a bad software.
I use Steam and Origin. <3 those Steam sales.
No, I don't need one :)
On my computer, only WoW.For everything else, Xobx 360, WiiU and PS3.
Steam, It is very userfriendly, and it is very useful to have all you games together.
With the massive array of pets added since MoP this one is up there on being the most adorable.
Although I believe steam and other services like it are a wonderful idea for gamers everywhere, due to the availability of games that may not available in stores, World of Warcraft takes up most of my free time and gaming budget.
