It was a question motivated from uncertainty of Steam, not of dislike for supporting Jeff.
I bought them as they came out over the years then again later when they came out on disk as a set. Jeff Vogel is one of the few men in the business I totally respect for his devotion and creativity. He is one of a very few who can capture my imagination and draw me in to the story. I have been a fan since GF 1 came out. Heck the version I first played had a ghost in the first area by the docks :). Only a few even know what I am referring to.
Present Steam price is insanely low, as long as it DOES work offline. If Support can't verify my past purchases, I buy from Steam now I know it will work offline.
