They need to bring back flash sales and daily deals.

The Thanksgiving sale has always been a subpar sale considering they have the big winter sale like 3 weeks later.

Then disappears the refund ability and selling your games.

You can't sell your games. And the solution is simple - Don't allow refunds on Flash sales.

The "Steam sales suck" topics really aren't that great this year. I think we peaked the year before last. Now all we get are people stating the obvious ☹

Wow this topic again, guess i need to do the same response of "Developers and Publishers decide the prices of their games on Steam, not Steam"

If Steam did bring these back nothing would change. Like i said before developers and publishers decide the prices of their games, and obviously they decided to not reduce prices of their games by as much during sales.

Seriously, a few years ago you wouldn't BELIEVE the quality of "this Steam sale sucks!" threads. We had 95% hyperbole! But now, it's like they're just phoning it in.

No doubt 📞😞

Or maybe they're just accepting the fact that it'll never be able to beat the "flash sale" style of sales. I kinda always figured that it couldn't last, but I didn't realize they'd fix it by making refunds available.

I think even if they didn't do refunds the sales would have gotten "worse" every year until people lost interest. I think having the sales like they are now may not be exciting, but it's better for the consumer.
