After reading this, it seems as though purchasing more than one game on a single steam account limits the flexibility of how you can use a game.
I understand why Steam did this and am not trying to complain about it. However, it does seem that creating a separate steam account for each game is advantageous.
- It doesn't cost any money
- It allows you to play different online games at a time
- The community features of steam are made almost un-usable as they are designed for one account per person (not multiple accounts per person)
- Creating multiple accounts eliminates some of the convenience of using steam, especially when switching between different games and getting game updates when you boot up.
I understand that trading, selling or transferring accounts is specifically banned by the User Agreement. But I cannot see anywhere that restricts a single person from registering multiple accounts (1 per game).
Does anyone do this, and should I be doing this with new steam purchases?
