Why doesn't Steam have this?

I wanted to get BF4 cause it was on sale but wasn't sure if it would run on my PC. Then I found out about this, and so I can just return it instantly within 24 hrs of launching it if it doesn't run well.

Ask Gabe, I don't run Valve and I'm pretty sure nobody else here does either.

Most if not all Valve games don't require a high-end pc to run so I doubt it would be of much use but it is a nice, consumer friendly feature that Valve should adopt.

They carry alot of games that can be beaten pretty quickly.

Portal and Alien Swarm? I think that's it.

Main reason is that steam/valve doesn't publish the vast majority of their offerings and thus doesn't have the right to do such a thing. There would be a lot of abuse if a person can just 'borrow' a game for a day. The best they could do would be to offer that sort of thing with their own Valve games which just so happen to run on toasters these days.

EA only offers that on their own titles.

Visit your Order History and select the "Request a Refund" link next to any eligible product.
Complete and submit the Refund Request Form.
You'll get a response within 48 hours and your refund within 10 days if you meet the refund criteria.


EA has denied refunds on downright factually broken products after publicly stating that they would refund dissatisfied customers, too. On the other hand, I've heard plenty of stories about people getting steam credit for a game they were dissatisfied with. Hell, I even managed to get a refund to the refunded game cheaper.
