    Open Steam.
    Click the 'Library' tab
    Click '+ Add a Game..'
    Click 'Add a Non-Steam Game...'
    Select the game from the list or, if it is not there, click 'Browse...' and locate the .exe file
    Click 'Add Selected Programs'
    Done! :yay:

    Optional: If the game's name is messed up from using the browse button right the game in your library, click properties and change the name in the first box.

    Edit: Note, this will add it as a non-steam game. You will not be able to unlock achievements, look at your stats or see how your friends are doing on that game (also, if the game links with the Steam community you will not be able to easily join your friend's games). If you want this you'll probably be safest re-downloading the game through Steam - you will likely be able to keep your saves.

    Check the flag dumby
    It's not really worth it tbh.
    You could use the key to get any item you want and more through trading
    Also if you're curious I know where you can buy a key for about $1.50

    Edit: Made my sentence make a bit more sense.

    I'm on all the time. Haven't had much time to play games lately because of school.

    Oh ok, I kind of figured this, but thanks for confirming it. I guess I will re-download it with steam. Thanks!

    Hey guys other than Super MNC, TF2, and DC Universe, what are some other free games that are good?

    Alien Swarm and Trackmania Nations are some of the free games I've played for over 5 hours. Nothing much else, but that's probably because it's me.

    Also, is there any way to sell used Steam games? Like I'm sick of Killing Floor and want to sell it.

    Too bad. Hopefully they add that feature, ever. Although I highly doubt it, developers aren't such a big fan of used games

    They aren't even small fans. Developers get annoyed second-hand sales of their games due to seeing no income. I would love the idea of selling used steam games though, would be nice.

    Steam is great and all, and my opinion has changed in a big, positive, way compared to last year, but it's such a shame it's so often offline! I get so much Steam trading errors or Steam Community down errors, it's kind of a dealbreaker IMHO.

    Just wondering, it's going to be Steam Summer Sale soon, and I'm doubting between putting all my Paypal money on my Steam Wallet, or to invest all my Paypal money in TF2 keys, which I can then use to buy the on-sale games even cheaper.

    Are the on-sale games tradable like all the other Steam games?
    And how long does the sale of each game last, or is it just like 20 games that are on sale for a whole month in 1 go?

    If you really want to play these games then personally I'd put the money in your Steam wallet since there's a fair chance of having the copies you trade for revoked at a later date due to whoever bought them in the first case being less than honest,

    But I guess that'll only happen when the game was giftable but not when it's tradable?
    The thing is, Steam's same currency policy is really screwing us Europeans over, they just copy the USD price over and place EUR behind it, but that's not true at all. If I invest in keys I can get the games even cheaper than they would be in the US Steam Store.... That is an amazing deal and will save me at least ten euros.

    hmmm satangel you've got some interesting points, but does your keys/eur theory hold some truth?

    Bought some new games, got BF3 (origin though) and GTA IV Complete now. I don't mind at all if GBAtemp people add me on Steam, no problem.

    Same name there as on here, Satangel
