Steam Family Sharing exits beta, lets you borrow all of your friends' games


One of the inherent drawbacks of digitally distributed games is that you can't loan them out to friends, but Steam has rewritten the rules a bit. Now that Valve's Family Sharing feature is out of beta, pretty much anyone can authorize another user -- that they trust with their account and its attached reputation/information -- and their device to "borrow" a game from their library. It's taken a few months to happen, but if your best Steam buddy owns Rust, you should finally be able to give it a shot before plunking down the cash for it yourself.
