Hmm and how would they make money doing that?
It would cost more in resources sorting out your account for nothing in return.
So tbh i could never see that happing.

well its a good job you don't own a business then. Valve would I imagine care how they make money and as your idea doesnt seem to generate any capital its what is know in business as "a very bad idea"

it could be a good idea if thought was put into it. it could be like trade-ins. you trade it in but don't get full price for it. but agreed it would be too much trouble for steam im guessing and could make them lose money instead of earning it.

Could work. Except no trade-ins, you could purchase steam credits and transfer to other people. e.g. your friend needs 1 steam credit it buy L4D, and you happen to have one lying around... so why not?

Valve is a business. If they don't make money, they will not stay in business very long.

Not taking it too serious, just pointing out that in general, it would be a bad business decision.

So what was the point exactely? Of course they liked the idea.

Hey, I have a sweet idea too, how about, like GM gives their cars away for free? that would be totally sweet man, I hope they do that, what do you think of this fabulous absolutely thought through and worth posting idea?

What's wrong with letting users liquidify games for a x% off any game?
The x would be determined by the purchase price of the game being removed.

Remove L4D2 and you get (45 * 0.5) % off any game, 25%.

Whilst they won't be making money from the removal of games, ( they might ) they'll be getting more sales in general. :\
