There's always a way...

I mean, XP was supposed to be uncrackable, look how long that lasted.

Now take a look at Half-Life2, there are no cd-key generators, why? because there is no installers. There isn't exactly an installer to hack and find keys for.

I personally love the idea of having everything done via steam, if I could have all my games run via steam I wouldn't mind at all.
I don't know where you've been but I know for a fact that there are cracked HL2 versions available. Aswell as the rest of valves series I have legit copies though...

There are people that make keygens, like teams and whatnot... so basically almost everything has a keygen...but are we allowed to discuss this here?

i'm referring to getting keys that can let you play online and have full access.. now as for being able to GET the games, your right, in fact i've even been there *cough* EMPORIO *cough*

There was also six-steam and steam down.. but see my point was, you can't steal hl2 from someone who deserves it.. you will not buy a copy of the game, and then find out your cd-key is invalid because of some punk with a key generator. This was was a problem with half-life1 on steam.

You can see the obvious difference in seriousness between a legit customer being screwed and someone getting a single player game without paying.
