In store cash (similar to cards)
Why not allow the community to "refund" (for lack of a better word) games they no longer wish to play for steam cash.

I say similar to the cards because there is a market where you sell them, yada yada, you all know. Why not do this but with games..? Allow us to have our own economy in a way maybe, the topic is out there, and is yours to do with as you wish.

PLEASE, make this viral, talk about it, spread the word like it's your gf's legs. Lets get some sort of thing going where its not really a lost cause to buy a game because there is always in store credit. Game stop does this and they have so much business because of store credit.

_Phil, thanks for reading!

Search the discussions this idea has been discussed many times in different forms with numerous arguments for and against. Basically, here's the main points: yeah it would be nice for customers, but Steam would receive little to no benefit from this program as that money you would use towards future purposes would come out of their profits, they receive nothing if they revoke your license in exchange for credit. Gamestop can do this because they sell physical copies of games for let's say $50 make a small/decent profit, buy it back from you for like $15-$20 of credit then resell it for like $40 making more profit than selling it new. Steam can't buy X number of licenses sell them to users then repurchase them back from users and resell them to other users. Not being able to resell or trade in Steam games is one reason why developers offer such good deals on steam because they no there is no 3rd party used game market cutting into their profits.

More then that ... if something like these is done were will the"Refund" credit come form? Valve only takes part of the % of price of the game.. most of it go to the publisher/Dev of the game

So if they refund it and then you buy something of other company dose Valve need to go to the Dev/Publisher and ask them for part of there profit?
