It probably would only be with valve games because other developers may not want to.

Publishers would not be interested in Steam if this was to happen.

Then I think we should be able to trade the license to play the game.

these posts are driving me crazy.

do people not actually think before they make these trading or gift card threads?

just sit down and think about what the companies would have to do for things like this to happen instead of just being a greedy consumer.

The fact is, we are PC gamers and when we used to own games, we never traded anyway.
