Looks like we will loose one of the good games from Steam, thanks to Valve for breaking Steam’s terms of service. This happened just as the new DLC legacy update was released from Dragon Age 2 by EA. Rather than being made available via Steam’s own client, EA chose to release the new DLC via an in-game store which has prompted Valve to remove the game from its network.

Valve has not commented on this move by EA while EA said in a statement, “At EA, we offer our games and content to all major download services including GameStop, Amazon, Direct2Drive and Steam. Unfortunately, Steam has adopted a set of restrictive terms of service which limit how developers interact with customers to sell downloadable content. No other download service has adopted this practice. Consequently some of our games have been removed by Steam. We hope to work out an agreement to keep our games on Steam.”

Has Dragon Age 2 disappearance from Steam affected you in anyway?
