Bring Age of Empires I and II to the Steam store
They are both in the top ten downloaded RTS games on the internet, but they are being dicontinued and retail stores are going to stop selling copies soon. We need to keep these dying games alive; we can by getting them into the Steam store.

Steam can't do that without permission of the rights holders. Valve is not going to bother with attempting to make contact with them since it would take too much time and effort to by themselves go out and search for games to bring into the library.
Rights holders need to contact Valve to get their games onto steam.

Ergo you need to contact the rights holders and convince them to contact Valve.
Posting here does absolutely nothing.

PS. you could also work for getting them onto Gog.com

Contact the owners and give them your idea, only way to do it. Valve is a HUGE company, they don't need to search for games to sell. Game owners come to them.

easy way to find out ..think you can google it...I found an old game I played in 1995 online, that way, was originally a Sierra Online game, somebody bought it ..and runs it still.
