    Well if no refunds for digital how about bringing back demos than. It really sucks when you buy a shitty game and can't get a refund

    Can't say I particularly pegged you as an apologist for the gaming industry.

    Also while videos can help they are far from perfect, and usually say very little about input lag/quality, ability to mess around and how it works with my connection in the case of online games, to say nothing of some of the personally specific things.

    Also why is it too bad if a game is bad? Generally "if not satisfied with purchase the return product for refund" is the done thing. Why would games be an exception to that notion?

    It's Gacha whale bread and butter. People verify those rates all the time with very good accuracy. When whales drop over 1000$ for their favorite waifu/hasubando, they can take note of the drop rate.

    Bugs may appear in some games due to faulty discs if so then course get an exchange not a refund - and if you mean a bug wher you can't finish the game we'll I've not experienced tht in over 30 years of gaming

    Why would finishing the game be the delineation? There are plenty of show stopping bugs that make progression or play far from optimal, and beyond that why stop there and not stop at typos or failures of localisation (left it as imperial measurements say)?

    You really overthink things:lol: look I work in retail and I kno some of the crap tht people say to get a refund-you must be the only gamer in the world who would complain about a typo in a game to demand a refund

    You are the one drawing very odd lines in the sand. I have seen enough stuff in retail, and read enough stories as well, but that is just people gaming a system as far as I am concerned. Would suck if they help to ruin something good.
    I am similarly not saying a typo should warrant a refund but if you said things that are broken should be replaced then I was trying to figure out where to draw a line as far as bugs goes.
