Default Raptr: The Ultimate Gamers' Social Network?

When I discovered Xfire in late 2004, it felt like I had stumbled on a pot of gold. It was a chat client like no other, because it had a major focus on the PC gamer, and as a result, it quickly became a tool that millions of gamers kept in their virtual toolboxes. A social network before the term 'social network' was even recognized, Xfire did a lot right, and for the longest time had no fear of real competition.

You can read the rest of our post and discuss here.

I have been using Raptr since Feb of 2010 and I like the fact you can put reviews up to recommend to your friends. I haven't used it much in my other games because the overlay kills your fps (at least it did 4 months ago I haven't looked since) and it took forever for it to update my Steam games. It is a good idea and has some bold initiatives but for the PC it falls a little flat with some of it features.
