    I have no idea what you're talking about, so I did some investigation, and...

    Code:
    What are Steam Trading Cards?
    
    Steam Trading Cards are collectible cards you get by playing games on Steam. Collect a set of cards to earn items that help you customize your profile and show off your gameplay.
    Is this for real? :confused:

    I only need Torchlight II.

    The only cards I have extra of are Football Manager 2013 and Tomb Raider.

    So if you could get an extra Torchlight II, I'd be happy to trade my extra Tomb Raider with you. :)

    I don't get it either. In order to play games, you need a STEAM client. In order to customize your STEAM client, you need to play moar games and collect cards. Sounds like a pretty malicious service, if you ask me.

    Added you as friend. About to leave for comic-con. I have Steam on my phone so go ahead and initiate the trade whenever. :)

    This is true, but supposedly collecting sets can net you some half-decent discount coupons, which could be a plus during non Steam-sale periods. Also, some of the better/rarer ones are said to have sold for a fairly decent amount on the Steam marketplace once upon a time, but I don't know how well that's going to hold up the further out they get from the days of the Beta.

    Actually, that's only for customizing your profile. If you don't care about Steam trading cards, not participating will not hurt your experience in any way, shape, or form.

    I heard that people buy / sell this stuff for a truck ton of money. People are so dumb.

    Some are dumb. Others are making truck tons of money. Ahhh, capitalism.

    Edit: Of course, it's easy to judge. Every hobby can be seen as stupid by those who don't pursue it and there's always something better to spend your money on if you ask someone else. When it comes to judging the tastes of others, there aren't many soapboxes to do it from that are actually fit to hold the weight.

    Yeah, but you gain nothing from "collecting" these cards. You spend time / money on stupid stuff. If it would be real cards, okay... But they are not. They are not old, they don't really have any value and you can't do anything with them.

    Even collecting postal stamps has more value than this.
