View Full Version : Increase frequency of DEMOS in advertisements.

I'm a hell of a lot more likely to consider a game demo than a "OMG $50 PRE ORDER SAVE 10% GET TF2 ITEMS" advertisement.

When a game is advertised it needs to say that it has a demo.

I agree with both of you. It's all well and good that the store page includes a link to download the demo, but most people aren't going to expect that button to be there in the first place unless demos are regularly mentioned in the advertising.

One thing I've been doing is watching the demo list (http://store.steampowered.com/freestuff/demos/) for new demos. I've found a few interesting games in it, that I have then gone on to purchase. Games that I would not have purchased from their description alone.
But the problem is: If the developers don't create a demo, Valve can't do anything to help get one made.

Agreed. The lack of availability of demos is just as much of a problem as the lack of media exposure given to the fact that they're even available for the games which do have them.
