I often see it happen on this board, people exchanging Steam keys. How do you know your not going to get ripped off?

unless you're buying games as gifts on steam which allow direct trades of game licenses, you don't.

I often see it happen on this board

really? you sure people aren't just making gift topics to get rid of leftover keys?

that batman arkham origins fiasco topic was the first trade topic i've seen in a while.

I bought a Metro Last Light key off amazon.com for $16.49, but I can't redeem it in Ireland, where I live.

Given that people like Brass_Eye exist, you don't.

Trade you for Assassin's Creed 3

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.
