How do you use retroarch on Steam??

Hehe, yeah, I remember being confused about that as well.

"Wtf? How is that useful? You can't download ROMs on Steam! So what point is it to use Steam with RetroArch?!"

See:

It allows purchase and download of ROMs through Steam:

This approach could be impossible for Retroarch, however, given doing so would require licensing of the games through Steam to be used with Retroarch cores. Then again, nothing is stopping anyone using the Megadrive ROMs from Steam on third-party emulators, so...
