I dislike the fact that they did it on Christmas day. Yeah I get the point it was suppose to be a gift but lets look at this realistically. Most gamers already own this. Only people who are gamers will actually be checking anything remotely game related today. Most people like me have a limited time to actually go on my computer today. I actually wanted to buy Payday 2. I heard it's good but I'm sat here after everyone has gone to bed trying to add a steam gift voucher code I got as a present to the store so I can buy it. I only have £10 in my wallet and it's £11, my luck haha.
Heck I didn't even know L4D2 was free until a few hours ago when I tried to access the store.
Brothers and Sisters are sworn enemies Like PC Gamers and Xbox Gamers, or PC Gamers and Sony Gamers, Or PC Gamers and PC Gamers, Damn PC Gamers ruined PC gaming
This is the most legit complaint you could have about this whole ordeal.
"I already have the game" well too bad "I wanted a better game" well too damn bad "I don't want the game" so don't get it then "I wanted to buy something but I can't because steam is screwed up because of idiots getting free L4D2" Yes... that's messed up.
They should have put the "free L4D2" on a server by itself so that only the people trying to get freebies are affected. OR maybe they should have made it like a deal where you are put in a queue and if you want it you can "reserve" the copy but the game won't actually be added or installed until the servers are in a condition to do so.
Oh well... Valve is the one that's losing out the most since I'm unable to give them my money.

does anyone know if i would have to pay for it again if i uninstalled after the giveaway is over?
Generally if it's attached to your account it's yours to keep installed or not...
