Have you ever wanted to buy a game on Steam but didn't know if it was good? Have you ever had just enough money for an indie game but didn't know whether it was worth buying? Have you ever asked yourself, "Should I buy this game?"

Then you're in luck. Here, you can ask others questions about any game on Steam or any other game on any console, whether it is about the graphics, the plot, the game play, or even the length.

Is someone doing a great job that you feels deserves recognition? Send us a message here with your recommendations for a higher level of recognition!

  • Explain why you are not sure you want to buy the game in your post. People can't help you figure out your problems if you don't express yourself.

  • You may not make threads about unreleased games. Only ones that are available to play commercially.

  • Check to make sure that the topic on your thread hasn't been made with the search bar. Recent reposts are bad. If you feel your question has not been answered by the previous thread, contact a moderator for an appeal.

  • No spoilers without a warning. Spoilers include, and are not limited to, revealing something about the plot late in the game or explaining an important plot point. This goes for both comments and posts. Mark something as a spoiler by putting the spoiler text in brackets like so [Spoiler text] followed by the spoiler tag, (/spoiler). It should appear as like this: Broodje eats socks!

  • Please no trading here. While giving away games is fine, this is not the place for the trading of games of any sort. Go to /r/SteamGameSwap to do that.

  • You may not suggest in any way to illegally obtain a game. While we do not care to pry into your own personal decision, we will not allow you to tell others to emulate, torrent, pirate, or in any other way get a hold of a game without legal consent of the producer. This goes for both comments and posts.

  • No links to key resellers.

  • No referral or affiliate links.

  • If you are having any sort of problem with the subreddit, don't hesitate to contact a mod.
