I use Steam because it makes life a lot easier than keeping discs sorted and losing product keys. One digital download and I'm good to game the night away!
I love the cinder kittens!

I used to use steam but then wow tookover :p.
Rarely use Steam, I tend to stick with WoW.
Steam, quite often. I usually buy games on there when they're on sale. Most recently I bought Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition on sale, quite a buy!
I've used Steam and Origin in the past because it was required for games that I had purchased. I also recently used Ubisoft's for FarCry 3 and Assassin's Creed 3. Pretty usefully actually.
Yes. I prefer to use digital download because it prevents me from losing important game keys or having to come up with places to store the media and box contents. The only software I might by in a store would be collectors editions but lately I have noticed alot of collectors editions that are digital are just as good. Digital download all the way!
The only one I use is Steam, and I hardly ever use that.
Yes, only for plants vs zombies and bejeweled twist
No, I don't. Main game right now is WoW!
Steam is cool for games like portal and half-life. Other than that II play WoW.
I do use Steam. Very handy. Does what i need it to do.
I use Steam for the majority of games. It's extremely quick and easy to use, and is the most widely used platform.The only other services I've used are Games for Windows, Origin, and Gface. Both GfW and Origin were extremely slow and clunky compared to Steam. Since GfW is now defunct, and I'll never buy another EA game, I won't use either again. Gface is ridiculously obfuscated when it comes to anything but launching a game, but it's only in beta at the moment.
Steam. Only because it's required to play Skyrim.
I and members of my family have tried Steam (Valve), Origins (EA), Impuse (Gamestop) and even GOG.com. The largest - Steam - is used most frequently due to quantity (and in my opinion quality) of content. We like the ability to cloud-store as a great alternative to bookshelves full of game disks (bookshelf? /push kindle aside). The prices are fair when considering the store purchased alternatives. Further, lets be honest, the badges on Steam are a nice "mini-game" that attracts the achievement 'ho in all of us.
I use FFsplit via twitch mainly due to the fact that I can edit the picture being broadcasted. IE if i have RL friends wisping me, I can put a picture of Majora's Mask up to block chat. My raid group has 15 raiders on at a time (usually) and we like to do quick swap-ins and it helps a lot when those sitting out get to see how we are doing things live so they don't need an attempt to get warmed up. I've got to say tho, Twitch does a great job with their streams. If anyone is ever interested in watching The Crimson Tide's group 2 (Darkspear) run, check out my channel on twitch.

Yes, I use both Steam and Curse to make my gaming experience more fulfilling. With Steam, I can easily download all my favorite non-blizzard games and play with dozens of friends with ease. With Curse, my addons are easily downloaded and installed to make my "WoWing" more enjoyable.
