It'd work if trade in value was a joke. Like 10-20% the price you paid, not MSRP. That way if you buy a game for $50 and trade it in for $10 (20%), it's no different than is Steam just let you rent the game for $40. The only benefit is that you got determine the rental length. They wouldn't buy back newer games for more. Why would they? It's not like they are going to sell USED Digital copies, so there's no demand for them to compete for. That way, Steam is just using the same license to generate money that would improve their (and any publishers) bottom line. Instead of each license having a value of $50, it could be much, much more to publishers.

Games I'm hyped for
The Last of Us Part 2, RE2 Remake, The Last Night

Current Platforms:
PC (i7-7700K, 16GB, GTX 980Ti), Wii U, PS4

Location: I hated going to weddings cause all the grandmas would poke me saying "you're next, you're next". They stopped saying that when I did it to them at Funerals.

that's how gamestop works.

Only the newest games are worth over 30 dollars trade in. They give the lowest store credit knowing you're going to buy something new.
