Hey

Do you always pre-purchase games on steam before it is released or do you wait till the reviews flow out?

The ONLY game I've pre-purchased was Grand Theft Auto V and I don't regret it. The only other game I will pre-purchase is Fallout 4 but that is all.

I've never pre-purchased a game besides Call of Duty Ghosts. (Bad decision)

Normally when pre-ordering games you add to the reason it's a bad game. The more money the developers have before releasing the game, the more they can get away with leaving out. Need an example? Check your message. Call of Duty: Ghosts was one of the most hyped CoD games (if not the most), and also one of the shittiest (by popular opinion, not mine, I've not played it).



Hence I don't "pre-purchase"/pre-order games. Nor do I read reviews. If it's been released, and I find it nifty, I'll buy it. I don't trust many reviews since most are biased, at least most on the internet.
Bye.

But now Steam has refunds option. If you don't like something, simply refund it back.

I doubt Steam will refund you something that you bought before this new option was put into place (you're probably saying "No shit, Coil"). If I may, when was this policy put in place exactly? Or can you send me a source for this (preferably from Steam itself)?

Not sure, I purchased it with my steam wallet and also got the refund to my steam wallet.
