Any study about games would be incomplete without mentioning Steam. It is, actually, an online platform where a user can download several games and store these into his profile. These games stored in the profile can be downloaded and installed on any PC. A very important feature of Steam is its facility of trading. A Steam user can exchange his items with any other users. These items may include games, trading cards, and other items related with these games.
Another very good thing about Steam is that there is large variety of games on this platform. All these are rated and classified according to the age group. The games with age group 16 or above are just for adults and may contain violence. Therefore, try to keep children away from such games. There are many child friendly games at this platform. Download and install these for children.
Another very good feature of this gaming platform is its facility of parental control. There is a restriction setting named as ‘Family View’ through which any unauthorized user can be restricted. A pin is generated in its setting up. Any person has to enter the pin to download any such game from the platform. Thus, children and toddlers are restricted to download and play violence games. There is also an age restriction condition. A person has to enter his or her age for proceeding the download. However, this can easily be tricked by writing fake age. Therefore, entering of the pin is the most secured method.
Keeping privacy is also another very good feature of Steam. The user can block messages and all other communications from a friend and even can remove the other from friend list. If you are not accustomed to reading and replying messages, keep privacy settings on. To avoid friend requests, a user can change his Steam name by editing his profile.
Steam is also considered a very good platform as it offers convenient methods of paying for games. There is also the facility of Steam wallet and a user can pay directly. Steam wallet is exactly like a bank account where you can keep your credit until you make some purchases.
There is also a danger of scammers in this way of purchasing games. You may fall a pray to unfair deal also.
