I was being sarcastic. While Steam and GOG offer different bonuses, I was speaking more generally. I'll choose DRM-Free any day over the apparent ecstasy of clicking a button in the Steam client rather than the Start menu.
Hint: I am pretty sure he knew you were being sarcastic.
Steam offers a couple of extra things like achievements, time played and auto updates. Of course the downside is that Steam is DRM. This does not bother me, because Steam is at least fair about it. I can understand not liking DRM, but steam isn't exactly TAGES or securom either.
