I have no problem accepting this as a fact; but I wouldn't call it a monopoly yet. Not as long as there is a substantial number of games coming out that don't use Steam. Among these, I would certainly count all (usually smaller or indie) games that will come out in the near future that make a point about not using Steam - after all, it takes some time for such resistance to materialize.

Personally making games a service has no benefits for me but many for publishers and developers.
It's your decision if you don't find "the services" Steam offers to be worth the trade-offs; services you wouldn't otherwise get (if you bought the game w/o Steam support).
