What I wouldn't give to be able to "sell" Steam games

I can't see any reason why 'Steam' would want to buy back licences for digital games. It's not like there is a finite number of licences, so what value would it have to them?

It could be ok but I'm sure you'd end up with lists of games for sale by other gamers that get just as highly competitive priced as Steam cards to where you aren't going to make anything off selling a game, especially after what cut Steam takes as the 3rd party doing the transaction.

Then don't buy games you aren't planning to play.

Nah. The games are cheap enough. The trade off is that you can't sell them. I'm fine with that. I like building a collection anyways. You never know when you are going to want to replay something....

highly doubt it... there's no incentive for them to buy it back. they wouldn't be making any money because they can't just "resell" the game like gamestop does... there's no physical value.

Being able to sell your games wouldn't work very well. I can see the prices' for selling being low when the Russian's flood the steam market with games due to the cheap prices they have.

I'd also imagine a large amount of lolz when you buy a multiplayer game that someone put on the market and the key was global banned or even worse VAC banned which would then transfer to your account.

Even better: Allow users to put their games up for sale on the Community Market. Make it useful instead of just a place to trade digital cards. If users are forced to sell directly to each other, buying a bunch of humble keys won't accomplish anything.


Then when a bunch of people sell their games there is so much competition that the price drops to 10-20 cents and Steam wouldn't make like any money doing that.
