Please also give a short explanation.
If you have too many hours what else is there to discuss? it sucks but that's how it works. You got to enjoy the game these days.
Check out any game on steamDB and see the lowest price the game went for on sale. Then just wait for a steam sale and buy the game.
Think of this as a lesson in price-checking before buying games. Going past 2 hours is the limit for refunds.
Never pay full price for a game that old. Use something like isthereanydeal.com in the future to track price history, or Augmented Steam to see the historical low of each game.
I bought 2 days and 5 hours of play but cannot refund so one week and 9 hours it is what it is
As far as I know, if you played the game for 2 hours or less, and had it for less than 2 weeks, they’ll honor your refund. Not quite the answer to your question, but I figured it’s helpful info.
How many hours
I have 9 hours on it
Well... Yeah can't do much now.
But also why pay full price for something that's not recent anyway. Always try g2a before
I just checked out G2a and wow, I didn't realize there was stuff like this. Ill probably use it in the future
important to note, this: [https://www.reddit.com/r/Steam/wiki/dangersofkeyresellers](https://www.reddit.com/r/Steam/wiki/dangersofkeyresellers)
there's a reason games are cheaper on there, and other grey market websites.
please do not support them, only support sites available from that link, or isthereanydeal.com
I'm sorry? I didn't realize I'm not allowed to buy games on steam.
the fuck lmao. don't talk to other people like that here. thanks.
you made this very easy for me.
Definitely do. They buy them on sales and sell them when there's no sale usually
