It's the part about needing the client for installation step. @x_wing mentioned something about them explicitly allowing manual backups and re-installtion without the client. I've never seen that. Where is it documented?
Don't know, but here they indirectly say there are games you can play that don't require Steam account.

QuoteCan I play games after deleting my account?

During the 30 days before account deletion, games that require a VAC server will not be playable. After your account is deleted, games that require a Steam account will not be playable.

And at "2. LICENSES A." they say you may be required
QuoteTo make use of the Content and Services, you must have a Steam Account and you MAY be required to be running the Steam client and maintaining a connection to the Internet.

Quote5. THIRD-PARTY CONTENT ⏶

In regard to all Subscriptions, Content and Services that are not authored by Valve, Valve does not screen such third-party content available on Steam or through other sources. Valve assumes no responsibility or liability for such third party content. Some third-party application software is capable of being used by businesses for business purposes - however, you may only acquire such software via Steam for private personal use.

Doesn't this mean it's up to the content publisher?

That's against their TOS already. Unless they modified it to allow that.

What I find funny is majority of people who refuse to use Steam also have NVIDIA GPUs.
Let's create a doomsday scenario for NVIDIA.
NVIDIA closes shop, you have a 500$ GPU, the Open-Source driver is SH*T because NVIDIA doesn't release the firmware/microcodes for their GPUs, you can only play games with the proprietary driver that is rapidly aging, The proprietary driver doesn't work on the new Kernel.
What now?

Quoting: TheSHEEEPYour argument is based on an eventuality that will simply never happen. You think police will kick down your door and arrest you for using a copy of a game you bought some time ago, but no longer "own"? Come on!
Might as well argue that you can't play your GOG games any more if you get abducted by aliens and they only have an old Commodore lying around.

Preparing for such an eventuality makes about as much sense as never using ROMs to play old games, as you are actually only allowed to play ROMs of games you own (and afaik only if you made the ROM yourself).
That's the very essence of tinfoil-hattery. Why waste valuable lifetime to prepare for something that will never happen? Just so, that in the 0.005% of it happening you can point and say "Told you so!"?
Very well said. I've been wondering how best to respond to people crying about Valve's TOS, because it doesn't include text that says you can keep your games you bought that run without the Steam Client, even if Steam closes shop.

Paradox Interactive on Linux support, it's being done on a "case by case basis"

Quoting: tuubiMost of their customers or the loudest of their customers?

Also, you really can't enjoy a game/story unless it perfectly conforms to your narrow world-view? That's a bit sad.
Funny, I've noticed people who say they have no problem with a product's "agenda" say it because it conforms to their worldview, and usually the second they see a game, movie etc. that doesn't, they are the loudest "unsatisfied customers" although I doubt they even purchased the product.

With the Valve Index about to launch and be delivered, Valve held a little private launch party with speeches

Quoting: liamdawe
Quoting: NanobangAlso, Liam, thank you for taking the time and effort to transcribe Gaben's speech. Transcription, especially of less than stellar audio, is very not-at-all fun under the best of circumstances. Your going the extra mile for we readers is very, very appreciated! :)
Thanks for the kind words, turning it up enough to hear it properly was quite painful on the ears with all the banging and background noise. I thought people would appreciate it though :)
Did you try to remove the noise with audacity? I used it a few times for this purpose with great results.

Valve release an official statement about the future of Linux support, they "remain committed" to Linux gaming

Quoting: ajgpIt going to be interesting seeing how the Ubuntu 32bit debacle is going to affect the next round of PC stats here on GOL (provided everyone updates their PC info), how big is the hit to ubuntu going to be and where have been the big winners from this migration.
I think you will see the affect more in the future, especially around 18.04s end of life.

Have been putting in a lot of hours in Graveyard Keeper and just started Lords Of The Fallen (awesome game unfortunately the Steam versions DRM is not removed so it won't work on proton unlike the GOG version)

Unique gravity-defying metroidvania 'Dandara' finally sees an update to the Linux version
