I can't seem to be able to pre-purchase Left 4 Dead, so I'm thinking of reinstalling Steam. But if I delete Steam, will it take my games with it?Would really rather not having to sit around while everything downloads again. Plus, I really fucking want my Left 4 Dead :|

^thisUninstalling Steam means your games are in the crossfire, they should really fix that.
