Not nearly as bad or wide spread as the facebook log-in requirements.

the only reason i asked is because i don't have the internet all the time so i was just wondering that's all

I don't use facebook so i wouldn't know

If by 'everything', you mean games that require Steam to play, then I would assume that the answer, in this case, lies somewhere in the question itself.

A lot of games can be played in offline mode of you don't have Internet all the time.

Basically, we can blame ourselves up to a good degree. Most of these questions can be answered by a single answer.
"Because we keep throwing money at them"

I frigging hate whenever someone on my twitter timeline, or on some page pastes a FB link to a news and i get 'Nope, you gotta have facebook to see this'... Well, then **** you.
Another good example of why we have to deal with certain stuff nowadays....

There are lots of reasons. I imagine a big one is that Steam provides a set of features -- Steamworks -- for free to developers, and those features are pretty valuable.

For instance, Steamworks has a complete system for doing multiplayer authentication and matchmaking. All stuff devs don't have to waste time reinventing, for free. Even things like Steam's bread and butter, content delivery, are valuable; the Bioshock Infinite devs were using Steam to distribute builds internally and to press, AMD/NVidia, etc.

I blame laziness and publishers. I do not want to switch between DVDs when playing different games on PC. I just hope there was less commercial solution than steam that each and every game publisher would use.

I think steam should just take over the world. I'd be okay with it.

And when the internet goes out nothing works -- no thank you.
