Play the game. ... I purchased a game (Sid Meier's Civilization V) in a store. All it said is that I had to have a Steam account that's verified. It didn't say ANYTHING about having to download almost * *** gigabytes of software in a forced update. I DON'T need a stupid update. I'm NOT playing this game online. I don't do multiplayer. That's why I bought this game, because I don't have to play it online with others. So I want to play the game NOW. I have a limited internet data amount. I can't waste *.* gigabytes for an unnecessary download. If I can't play it because I can't update it, then forget this stupid game and give me a refund. In cash, not Steam credit. I didn't buy this game with Steam Credit but with cash. Again, if there's no way to ignore the update, then I want a refund. Playing this game isn't that important. I just thought it would be fun but I'm NOT using up my limited data for a stupid game. It was NOT stated on the package that any update was necessary nor how much of an update was required. Had I known, I never would have bought it. It was also not stated in the License Agreement. I know, I read it. No where did it say that I was required to download an update of * gigabytes. It said I would possibly have to make a *rd party account, but it said nothing about any update of * gigs. The next time you require an update on any game purchased, then make sure it's clearly shown that it is required so that people don't spend their money and time. I realize that you're just a support person. So, please pass this on to your supervisors so that they can fix this so it doesn't happen again. Thank you.
I couldn't play it. I had time now to play it but I can't because of a stupid * gigabyte update that wasn't mentioned. Not everyone has unlimited internet data. It costs me $** for every ** gigs that I go over. I have * months out of a year where I won't be charged but I've already gone over once and don't plan on doing it again unless it's almost the end of the year. If a game is sent out on DVD, then it's perfectly playable without any updates. So let me play the un-updated version. That's fine with me. I own the Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri game and have for many years. I never had to update it to play it, so why would I have to do it with this game?
Telling me how I can play the game without an "update" which normally is for online multiplayer gaming, which I don't do. I might stream my game play of a single player game, but I don't do multiplayer online gaming. So anything that has to do with it is completely unnecessary and a waste of my internet data usage.
Hold on. So to get any good service, I have to be a "good customer" and tell you why I am? Really? I didn't realize I'd have to be writing an essay on my "good customer" qualities. Well, let's just say that you can figure out why with my email address. I've been a user of twitch for about ** months now. Who knows how many games I might have gotten from Steam but if this is standard procedure, I'll just stick with retro-gaming. Or do some console gaming with games that can't really be updated so I don't have to worry about this.
Yes. I tried to stop the download and start the game but that just started up the download again, which I had to stop, again.
