Locked out of Steam account because cannot get access to password

My son has a steam account with many games on it. He has lost his password and can't retrieve it because he also doesn't remember which email he used. I do not want people to get a hold of this account and I also want my other son to have access. So how can I get the password and then change it to my own password so I can take control of when they play.I have already tried the lost password we will email it to you. But since he is not sure which one we can't get it.Yes, they are teenagers and of course didn't keep a book of passwords so I was wondering if anybody could help me. Is there a way to get in contact with steam and explain or do we just say goodbye to the hundreds of dollars of games I have purchased over the past year for them to play.My other so is a helper on some of the games and very responsible but our household is in turmoil over this because the boys are fighting over it.Please help!

If you still have the receipt or proof of purchase you may contact steam support, they will look at your billing history credit card payment etc to verify your account.

My Wife bought a new laptop, and purcased empire total war for me. we downloaded the game, it was one of the best PC games ever . but then the laptop broke, and after buying a new one i cant get the game...

Your going to need to contact steam they will send you a new username and password,then you can get your code back.Or they will find your old one.

When you registerd with steam you used your e mail address for verification,this is all you need to get your account info back.

Also steam is only a middleman you must of got the game from one of steams providers,like digital download,or someone else.Check with the game manufacture also,E A games or whoever made it you would have had to create an accout there to get the code.

Why do u need steam to run game

Steam is a platform for managing and launching Windows (and now Mac) based games. You will need to have Steam installed in order to run specific games if the game depends on it. There is nothing you can do about a game that requires Steam as that is the way the developer or publisher designed it.

Cant create account for my new game half life 2


Valve Corporation. All Half-Life 2 players on PC are required to have Steam installed and a valid account in order to play.[44] Steam allows customers to purchase games and other software straight from the developer and have them downloaded directly to their computer as well as receiving "micro updates." These updates also make hacking the game harder to do and has thus far been somewhat successful in staving off cheats and playability for users with unauthorized copies.[45] Steam can also be used for finding and playing multiplayer games through an integrated server browser and friends list, and game data can be backed up with a standard CD or DVD burner. Steam and a customer’s purchased content can be downloaded onto any computer, as long as that account is only logged in at one location at a given time.
