What is Steam?

Steam is a digital shop, a bit like the Google Play and iTunes app stores – but for PCs, not mobile phones and tablets.

Gaming company Valve launched Steam in 2004, and it now has the biggest catalogue of games to buy and download of any online site.

Steam is also a social networking site – with discussion groups, a messaging system and on-site rewards.
