unfortunately for people whos internet goes down unexpectantly, steam requires you to "log in to offline mode" while you still have internet. It assumes you know you wont have internet access and can plan ahead.

This isn't really true. I used Steam for a whole month without Internet, and offline mode worked great. If you try to log in without having Internet access, Steam will fail to connect, and present an option to use offline mode.

You have to have Steam save your password. If the Steam client doesn't know to save your password, it doesn't have the means to verify your account if there is no internet connection. I'd rather this be something that happens right when you first install Steam, but it's something you just have to know to do or you're screwed until you get the internet back up.

When you first download a game, you have to run it once online to be able to play it offline.
