Why doesn't Steam have this?

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.


Who cares about Valve games? You should be allowed to refund literally any game. Google allows you to refund literally any app on the play store within a short timeframe from when you bought it in case it doesn't run/crashes, so it's not like it isn't possible.

Because the vast majority (If not all) of games on Origin belong to EA. With Steam it's made up of loads of publishers and I'm not sure if this has to go through the publishers themselves in order to actually give the refund (The permission of course, not the actual process of refunding)

Because no one buys EA games.

Those full BF4 servers seem to indicate otherwise.

Why doesn't Target let me return a video game after I've opened up the box?

I bought a new car and drove it for miles. I don't like the colour though. Can I get a full refund?

15 minutes after the first time you run it they did away with the 24hr rule a couple years ago, granted you can still contact the developer and they will usually refund the money anyways.

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


I'm Gabe, actually. In all my lard and glory.


I came here to Gamefaqs to know what you guys want from us... and to learn how to count to 3... somehow.

Now that's a great move by EA. But just one of the advantages Origin has over Steam

The color you can see it instantly before buying it, but if it was about the performance, you could have done a test drive before buying it, sucks though that most games don't have free demos..
