hey if you complete 100% of a game regardless of how long you spend (platinum =/= 100% for a lot of games), and feel no attachment / have no friends or family interested (or old enough) to play the games, why keep them when you can flog them.
You openly said you don't flog them; you play a game to its absolute fullest, then return it for a refund!

same principle, i cant help it if a lot of games take less than 2 weeks to complete (which means I can get a refund, or in the case of amazon, 1 month return policy).

I got the Sims 4 for free which on the surface of it looks like a good deal but then you have a look at the obscene prices E.A. charge for the D.L.C. and it becomes apparent that it really isn't.

WTF? One is demanding a refund after playing a game to its fullest, the other is selling it on as pre-owned because you're done, that's completely different ends of the morality scale. Such a fraud.

Uncharted 4 is currently under 8 pounds on the PlayStation store. It's a weirdly constructed game, I find, in level design choices (although that lack of obviousness should aid replayability), but the graphics, some setpieces, and the Elena/Nathan relationship are very well done and it's mostly a leisurely enough game (too leisurely?) that it's like being on holiday.

recently I decided to download steam after getting something a few years ago but never getting around to installing it.

To my surprise, a $15 bundle I paid (~£12) ages ago was still valid. this was as part of a charity discount rockstar games was doing for the rainforest alliance. for $15, I got GTA3, vice city, san andreas, GTA4 & episodes from liberty city (it is now the complete edition as steam had to merge them), max payne1,2,3 (including dlc for 3), LA Noire &DLC, manhunt, bully complete edition. whilst I doubt i will play manhunt and max payne, the others are games I enjoyed or in the case of la noire, want to try.

Also got persona 5 ultimate edition in 2018 for £21 (RRp was £84) from playstation store.

So yeah, what's the best discounts you've gotten on games?
If it is just about steam games, the Mega Man parts 1-6 I got as Legacy collection on steam were bargains. Did not even pay for the collection, it was a christmas gift in the last year. And even if I would had paid, I had saved hundreds of pounds. The original games for NES are a rarity and thus pretty expensive. The prices for these games are about 60 up to 90 pounds. Do the math.
