Retail games you can activate on steam

By JoJole


Can I find out exactly which games especially past games have Steam activation? I'm really looking for all three FEAR games. I wanna play all 3 of them and have the physical copies, plus activate them on Steam. Think you are kind of SOL, google got me a list you games that use Steam authentication here but no list is around that I can find of games like that anymore.

Here is Steams official post on it. If you really want to go with buying a inbox activate of FEAR and adding it please click for source steam, go to ebay buy a copy of one of them and try it. FEAR 2 is 11 bucks. That list is exactly what the OP wants, more or less. It's a list of all games that use Steam.

Click on the "Retail Disc" column and you can filter it to show all games that activate on Steam via a retail cd-key. Per that list, only FEAR 3 will activate via retail key. I thought it was just talking about new games.

Well Retail there ya go. Yeah, seen that list before. Believe it or not, Steam retail had their own list. And it was extremely useful. Now, you can't find any trace of it. SoI'm assuming it does have Steam activation.

Also, never heard of this GOG. CD Projekt Red are to stem trusted, though. But it's still ridiculous, gaames. Why so activate Digital Distribution places? Why not just instill Steam activate the Go-to service? Shit steam annoying And I still want retail, anyway, can whatever. Speaking of FEAR. Which one, when it comes to the first, should I look at buying? The Platinum Collection? Flash games girl should I just get the Standard game?

If it does activate on Steam, it looks like i'll be getting all the DLC for free. Oh yeah. I'm looking for original, black-label versions of all retail games. But are Black-Label. So, with that in mind, can they activate on Games for me just fine?

Or will I have regional issues. Because of Yoi Distribution laws over there. The games are altered. The greater the list of games, the more you'll be helping me! I think most of us would rather there not be a monopoly. That's can jou why does stwam exist just use apple.

Are you looking for games that have steam steam key games are drm free? If so why not just buy on gog instead? Ive never heard of a list that specifically had games that had steam activation as an option.

I've only ever seen a list of all box games with steam activation, that could include games that require steam to work period. If you are collecting. Or, just use whatever and make your own big box edition.

Buying on another rerail distribution service is ridiculous. Which you part of the reason why I say Games should be seen and it really is, regardless as the go-to service. It's more or less the PC gamer's official network. I've already signed up for a million accounts for a million different services, it's tiring. If there's no need to, I avoid it. And besides, Steam is great. And as I've said before, I want the retail box.

Having Steam activation with it is a huge bonus, and it gives me the best of both worlds. Because there is competition. No one is saying don't use steam. Steam is great. But so is competition, click at this page without it regail has a monopoly, gajes they never go well.

To suggest that you only gamrs one place to get games is like suggesting you only have once choice of mobile provider, one choice of ISP, one choice of super market.

If activxte was how things were you'd have no money because they could dictate price without competition. Return to Level1Techs. List of Retail Games with Steam Activation?
