I’m actually surprised that they actually managed to pull this off, but Steam has finally activated the Family Sharing within the Steam application. For those of you not in the know, this basically means that you can share your Steam games to anyone that you please . . . as long as you trust them with your Steam account.
Per PC Gamers article found here, “Family Library Sharing allows you to share your Steam library with up to 10 computers at a given time, and for up to five accounts that may then use your game library on any of those computers. “Only one account can play games from the library at a time, and the primary account holder always has access over other users. If you start playing a game while one of the
people you shared the library with is already playing, he or she will have a few minutes to either save and quit or purchase the game and continue playing.”
I personally think that this is an awesome idea. A lot of us in the clan and have known each other for years. I would think that there may be handful of us that wouldn’t mind giving someone in our clan access to our account so that they could play our games (it’s also a great way for them to play a game that you want them to try and maybe buy but they don’t have a demo to play or the cash to shell out blindly).
I hope that this doesn’t become a boon dongle, but I personally think this is a really good move by Steam.
