    I really hope this actually goes forward!

    I have tons of old games that I don't even have installed anymore on my account, would be sweet to let friends try them out or w.e

    Not being able to trade used games has been thorn in pc's side for many years, cemented with steam

    Best news I've heard all week!!!! This would really change the way you can 'test' out a game before purchasing. It's very annoying when a new game comes out with no demo to give it a spin first. THANK YOU STEAM!
