Steam is a digital distribution platform introduced by Valve on September 12, 2003, allowing anyone to download games and updates. What makes Steam different than most other digital distributed platforms is that it allows both large and small game developers to sell their games. Steam supports mods, has a community of several million other players, and offers many free games.
