Hard to explain? It's a game launcher that Valve uses.

Hehe, thanks!

And, as I said, I'm talking about the WHOLE thing. From not having Steam opened, clicking on the Half-Life 2 desktop icon, then loading Steam, loading Half-Life 2's loading screen, then loading that screen!

That takes around 2 minutes. You know what? I'll time it! (Tomorrow, though, I have to go for now )

its like this general manager that have counter strike, cs source, dod and a lot of other "steam" games. u have to buy a half life game to get the cd key and make an account with it to get a steam account. after u make an account u can play any of the default games in there, there might be some other games where u cant play because u have to make additional purchases.

You can always just get it to save your idea when means it pretty much goes straight into the main window in like 10 seconds. Then If you justed clicked on the actually game shortcut to start with it goes straight into the game loading and then if you've got an alright computer it only takes bout 1 min to get in. :P I mean "GooOoD" computer tho. =D
