    Hey guys, my friend recently let me try black ops with his steam account on my computer to see if my system can run the game. And it turns out fine! Now I'm thinking if I log back onto my own account and buy the game, do I need to download the game again because the download I have now is licensed to my friend?

    You won't have to download the game again. Or at least it didn't have to when I did the same thing with some old Star Wars games and my girlfriends account.

    At the very worst it might have to unpack the files from your steamapps folder again.
